    The top-shelf Pappy Van Winkle is incredible. I also recommend the Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey.

    Jeff, the world's most awesome bartender, drives a moto guzzi. Not a ducati, aprilla, triumph, or any other nonsense. A moto guzzi. Screw this up at your own risk.

    When you order a Bitters and Soda, they may ask you what kind of bitters you want. (I choose chocolate.)

    James at the bar sure makes folks happy here. Don't forget to add inappropriate jams to the jukebox on his behalf.

    The quintessential dive bar. Has a pool table and great bartenders. 24th St south of Mission is still the real deal Mission District, an endangered species.

    Head over to The Blind Cat, mix with locals and get ridiculously cheap beer- for SF standards. The hardest part is deciding whether to start or end the night there. Read more

    Beer and a shot for $7. Can't beat it. And they'll usually let you sub out PBR for something better.

    Ok bar if you're interested in puke smells, crack heads and Fireball shots. Most the bartenders are pretty cool, except the chick with the blonde hair might be constantly on her rag.
