    From Ramrod in 1967 until KOK Bar in 2013, 1225 Folsom was the home of (in)famous gay leather bars. Look in the bathroom for a rather large tribute to KOK Bar, the last of the seedy occupants.

    The cocktails are straightforward and spirituous; we like the Bosun's Knot, an old-fashioned with a green Chartreuse and coffee bean kick, and a classic Last Word or Vesper are also good options.

    There's a distinct castaway theme at Driftwood, and that includes lighting a fire to stay warm. Head to the back to find the cast iron fireplace, and play the vintage piano while you're at it. Read more

    When bloodhound is too busy just keep walking a block to this less popular but equally great cocktail bar. Grab the couches in back if they're free.

    There's a cosy area in the back with a leather couch that's great for enjoying a cocktail or two.

    If you're in the mood for something unique, try the smooth coffee-tinged Hemisphere.

    Ask the bartender about gin options. The remote controlled fire in the back is cozy.

    Try the "native tongue" if you like cilantro.
