    A favorite amongst the craft cocktail set, this is an old-school classic that’s equally awesome for a sober smooch early in the night or a make-out sprawled on the back couch just before closing time. Read more

    If you want to feel like you belong, this is the place. If you want to escape the belonging, just keep walking back into the tiny alcove with a few quiet seats and tables.

    Take a trip back in time tonight. This place opened the day after Prohibition was repealed in 1933 and keeps the old-time vibe alive thanks to Atomic Age decor. Cock-tails are a serious business here. Read more

    One of the first bars to open in North Beach right after prohibition. If Devon is bar tending, then you are in good hands. She knows her beer and Tequila.

    Cock-tails are a serious business here: there's always a surprise lurking behind the bar if the right mixologist is on duty. Read more

    Try the honey whiskey with ginger beer! Great idea from the bartender Victor.

    Don't be fooled by the run-down sign outside! Originally named Tony Nicco's Café, the owner sold the bar to his friend and bartender who named the bar Tony Nik's in his honor.

    The seating in the back is sometimes reserved, so make sure to check with the bouncer before assuming the position.

    One of the best dive bars in SF. Try the Crowd Pleaser.

    Ask for Tan Ferraris. Like the car. Amaretto, Bailey's, and Kahlua. Kind of gross and delicious all at once.

    difficult if not impossible to secure space at the bar. unfortunately that means you'll be quarantined in the back

    Nowhere close to being a "dive bar" but a nice "hip" joint nonetheless.

    Even if it looks crowded, you can find seating in the back.

    Sit at the bar. The bartender's way friendly and the drinks are made strong enough for Hemingway.

    The dark and stormy is more stormy than dark. Choose something else.

    Um bar pra chamar de seu, com mais de 80 anos de historia. A fachada não representa o interior!! Boa pedida para antes ou depois de uma pizza no Tony's!
