    Excellent bar with great drinks. Order a Recoil - whiskey with ginger beer and a lime. Crazy delicious. For those in the know, it's like a West Coast Jargarita.

    Getting hungry? Be on the lookout for the girl dressed as Alice in Wonderland – she’s known to pop in selling cookies. They won’t turn you into a giant or make you super small, but they’re damn tasty. Read more

    If you're looking to drink rye or bourbon neat, then this is the best place in SOMA to make it happen. With Four Roses Single Barrel Reserve and Eagle Rare at reasonable prices, you can't go wrong.

    Killer liquor selection up in here. Highly recommend The Laddie Ten, malted with only Scottish barley from Bruichladdich's 2001 resurrection.

    This bar is popular amongst tech startups for after-work team drinks during weekdays. The cocktail menu frequently changes, so some of drinks recommended in the tips might not always be available.

    Don't be afraid to bring your furry friend inside, where equally strong & delicious cocktails, even with Becherovka, take you to a new level of comfort on the decorative sofa of this SF hot spot.

    This may not be a craft beer destination but it does have a great selection of craft beer and it's a great spot to go after City Beer Store closes.

    The bloodhound is really good. There house gin they use is Beefeater. This place is alright with me! Bar tender was so nice and her drinks hit the spot.

    One of the best bars in SF. Check out the ceiling, order a cocktail, and try the smoked nuts.

    Get Pappy Van Winkle bourbon. It's extremely rare and limited edition. You won't be disappointed especially when they put that gorgeous block of ice in your glass.

    The Bloodshot is a great bourbon cocktail. Good balance of bitter and sweet with a gigantic ice cube

    The cocktail menu rotates, but the Oaxaca old fashioned is smokey and delicious (and can be ordered off-menu). They also pour a good sazerac.

    Bring some cash for Big Buck Hunter! Try one of their delicious draft beers before getting serious with a Recoil cocktail. Drinks are served in Mason jars!

    Good selection of beer & cocktails. Large open space, great for groups looking to drink and socialize. Perfect spot post Giants game.

    Went to this bar a few days ago and loved it! Nice group of people, a round of Buck Hunter with friends, followed by a round of pool, with a beer in hand all throughout. Great time!

    A dozen whiskey/bourbon cocktails, all great and not too sweet, plus Buck Hunter.

    When City Beer Store closes at 10pm, this is a great place to get more craft beer. They have several taps of nothing but craft beer.

    Probably one of the least pretentious places in the city. Good drinks and good ambiance. They also have a photo booth!

    Stand in front of the Big Buck Hunter machine and look up... there's a BRONZED BIG BUCK RIFLE!!! It's some kind of trophy and getting my name on it is my destiny.

    Order the Recoil-- a terrific mixed drink served cold by the friendly by meticulous bartenders-- and head on back for a game of pool or Big Buck Hunter. Read more

    This bar is OK. Same owners as church hill (which I like), but the crowd isn't always the friendliest. Too many people end up there before/after hitting up one of the near by clubs.

    The Recoil is Amazeballz. Speaking of ballz get 'cha game on at the pool table which is appropriately lit by an antler chandelier. Love.

    The Recoil is highly recommended. Not too strong. Not too weak. And not too sweet.

    If you get an old-fashioned, ask for the smoked sugar that they keep hidden behind the bar.
