    Ah.Maz.Ing. Sit back , get a Manhattan, listen to the tantalizing tickles of the ivories and let yourself go. Take a tour of the old photos and pretend you're Dagny Taggert.

    Sophisticated yet laid back. Try the Fillet Mignon. Side of Brussel Sprouts is a must! Super-friendly, yet professional staff. Jackie S & Georgette we're the best!

    Perfect for winter, this fireplace bar comes complete with a piano man, leather booths and a delicious mix of specialty cocktails on call. Feel fancy and enjoy the warmth in one of the private booths. Read more

    Live piano music, a chicken pot pie from chef Gloria Ciccarone-Nehls and martinis made with Anchor Distilling's Junipero gin complete the experience of this quintessential Nob Hill power spot.

    Interesting authentic restaurant with great food and lots of history. I'd recommend it, but you may need to book as it's very popular

    I've taken a hankering for sauzerac but boy unlike a grilled cheese they are hard to get right. Lucky for you Ty makes them perfect. So order one up!

    Best piano player in SF! He takes requests. Sit, listen and be transported back to the '30's, 40's and 50's Magical.

    I love old school clubby places like this. Great burger at lunch that they might reluctantly serve you at dinner.

    Probably the best manhattan in the city: straight up or on the rocks there's something special Ty puts in it.
