    Lovely little spot where you can usually get a seat and good service even when it looks crowded. Great cocktails, wine and snacks. I love a bar with good snack options.

    Here on Tuesday to Friday they do happy hour from 4 pm to 6 pm, and the deal is $3 draft beers, and $5 cocktails, which means their delicious concoctions are half price. Get there early for a seat. Read more

    With an unfussy cocktail list and wines by the carafe, the cozy space feels as though it was dreamed up as the perfect spot to have a few drinks over simple plates of food that stuck in your teeth. Read more

    The specialty cocktails are very tasty. You really can't go wrong, I like the whiskey and bourbon ones myself. The books make for nice decor, not sure if anyone actually reads them though.

    This place has the best drinks and the best staff. Kat makes the most amazing drinkings - I recommend her Yerba Buena 75 or ask for a Last Word. Amazing! Alex in the kitchen makes some great food.

    Sidle up to a stool, get yourself an artisan cocktail (they particularly know their way around whiskey and gin), borrow a book from their shelves, and watch the hours dissolve.

    Come here for a boozy reading experience. These sisters've got 4 beers on tap, wine by the glass, and excellent under-$10 housemade jerky (marinated in an apple cider/pineapple juice brine). Read more

    Ask for the Dark Knight. It's not on the menu anymore, but it's crazy-delicious: gin, Aperol, Campari, and some housemade cherry-balsamic vermouth magic.

    Two Sisters Bar & Books is a tiny & wonderful place. Why potentially flood this gem by posting a highlight? Because I want the owner's success to be out of the park. Read more

    There are not enough great things to say about this pace. I recently discovered they have a happy hour and occasionally teach classes on Mondays (usually closed Mondays).

    This tiny Hayes Valley haven brings a feminine touch to the classic 
via its worshipped Chamomile Old Fashioned, where dry chamomile 
flowers are infused in Old Forester 86 Bourbon.

    Favorite cocktails in the city. Small intimate space that's good for catching up with a friend (or a book)

    I dig it! Small space and great/cheap happy hour specials. Try their daily cocktail. It gets loud/busy after 7:30pm though.

    Fantastic cocktails, but small plates, so be careful. The Corpus Christi packs a surprising citrus punch.

    The roasted wild boar sausage with Yukon gold potatoes in garlic and rosemary oil is to die for, and the homemade beef jerky makes Slim Jim cry in shame. Read more

    Savory bar bites from the tiny kitchen pair nicely with bartender Michael Cecconi's elegant cocktails. Bonus: the monthly Books & Booze Club.

    The chicken leg entree is perfect. Pan fried and sits in in the dreamiest broth with capers and leeks that I just wanted to drink.

    Has a quiet, neighborhood feel. Nothing extravagant on the cocktail menu, but go for some bar bites and a well-made cocktail.

    They do brunch now. Or did they always? Either way, small menu, but the blue cheese & mushroom scramble was good. Super quaint place.
