Canadians come one and all – On 3 different trips to the Bay area, I always ran into fellow Canadians there. Met some Raider fans one Saturday night there and saw them again the next day at the game. It's great!
Beware of cranky bartender – Very cozy place with a great New Orleans feel. Great late night environment for a drink with friends, but the rude bartender we had when we were there (early November) really left a bad impression. Not only did he display poor customer service, but almost went out of his way to be incredibly rude to my group of friends. It is unfortunate, because this could have been a staple spot when returning to San Francisco.
Inexpensive, strong drinks bewitch regulars at a laid-back joint near the edge of Russian Hill. – In Short
This place is fairly dark, with gray walls, black ceilings and burgundy velvet curtains--a few Mardi Gras beads here, a skeleton there, even framed black-and-white photos of grave sites. Bartenders are liberal with the liquor and will chat with newcomers until they become familiar. Two TV monitors hang in the small room, drawing attention whenever there's a game on, while the jukebox is mainly classic rock.
audrey from nyc – steve is a grate guy!
anyone visiting the area should stop there.
I WILL BE BACK THERE IN SEPTEMBER
SEE YA BOYS
Smokers unite – Cool little joint with stiff drinks. Oh, smoking is OK. Sweet jukebox.
great martinis – If for nothing else, this place has the best value in martinis anywhere in the city. The martinis are served full in big martini glasses. If you can find a grey goose this big for this price anywhere else in the city, go for it... the thing is, you can't. It's a decent little bar that is low-key.
rebuttle – The yuppie guys do not live close anymore. The bar has a great feel and the write up is very good. I would recommend to go back and try it again. The drinks are very reasonably priced and it is a great place to hang out.... Let me know what you think.
Great Neighborhood Bar! – This is a really cool bar. I almost don't want to write this because in some ways I'd like to keep it a secret. But the bar and bartenders deserve to be praised.
