great place in San Francisco – nice to see this place. lot of funs are in the place. i want to see this place if it is possible in future.
The City's Best-Kept Secret – This place is a very cool oasis tucked within the South of Market nightlife mayhem. The two-floor art gallery alone is worth the visit (the space is gorgeous but without any of the usual art gallery snootiness), and there's the added bonus of a downstairs beer and wine bar. Excellent wine list a great selection of beers and very cool staff. This is the perfect after work chill spot.
Fun Art and Wine Gallery – Great space featuring some awesome artists. Compared to 111 Minna
down the street it's a bit smaller and more intimate. The art is contemporary
and covers the gamut of media from painting to sculpture. The patrons also
vary depending on the current show from full-suits to full-body-tatoos. And
I'm always happy with the bartender.
A hip gallery offering an art-and-wine experience late into the evening. – The Scene
This SoMa space is visually interesting with its contemporary art, a vaulted ceiling, skylights and touches of patinaed steel throughout. Everything from the banisters to the bar is handcrafted, and it shows. The wine bar is tucked into the back corner of the main gallery, while the mezzanine features additional installations and an art library. Not many San Francisco galleries feel as relaxed as Varnish, due in part to its friendly staff, the presence of music (not many galleries play rock) and wine choices.
The impressive selection of fine wines--from Napa cabs to exquisite pinot noirs from Europe--pair wonderfully with the assorted cheese plates, making this a cool space for artists and downtown worker-bees to hang out. Try one of the quirky, top-notch wine flights, like Wines of Our Youth. The sake cocktails are also recommended, including the Linseed, which has frozen apricot juice that melts into the sake.
