    Great bartenders, great drinks, and super fun vibe! Can get a little crowded so get there early if you can!! It''s pricey, $30 for a shot of scotch - 18 year I think, but otherwise good ambiance.

    This place is great for a mix of financial district suits and polo wearing techies. The staff know how to make countless drinks plus they will make you something from scratch if you ask nice!

    Tell them what you like and they'll make you drink of your choice. Cucumber gimlet sooo refreshing and whiskey snap is just how it sounds like snap!

    Great SoMA location for that happy hour drink. Not the best cocktail, so stick with the beer, straight on rocks, and conversation.

    There's a lot of whiskey here. Ask the friendly bartenders about all the whiskey.

    Good cocktails, but no cocktail menu. Order off menu, name some cocktails you like and they'll pick something good.

    Let the bartenders pick your drink, just naming a spirit and a flavor profile; it'll end up great.

    Mark (bald guy with glasses) is easily the best bartender in the city. Tell him what you like and he'll make you a new variant that will blow. Your. Mind.

    the bartenders here actually earn the title of 'mixologist'. they work some serious magic.

    Decent alcohol selection. Unfortunately, it looks like a rundown, ripoff version of House of Shields. Cracked walls, bad acoustics, and that's with a half-empty bar.

    Don't come here during HH, it's way too crowded. That being said, they make a great whiskey sour. Order one.
