Try a rum old fashioned.
Off menu order the recoil. I promise you'll enjoy it.
Hmm surprisingly crowded during work hours..
Surprisingly nice place. Liked the cocktails. There's buck hunter in the back too.
Great cocktails. Good street for bar hopping
Gets pretty crowded in here, but a good place to pre-game before heading to one of the clubs in soma.
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.
Good cocktails. Chill atmosphere.
Great cocktails, not too expensive. Hip without being a scene. It's a goldilocks bar.
Good selection of beer & cocktails. Large open space, great for groups looking to drink and socialize. Perfect spot post Giants game.
No jack Daniels. Just whiskey and coke.
Cocktails = great. Try the Outlaw Heart. Bartenders = fantastic. Super friendly and personable.
Get the bloodshot. It's got a big ice cube and tastes great
The Bloodshot is a great bourbon cocktail. Good balance of bitter and sweet with a gigantic ice cube
One of the best bars in SF. Check out the ceiling, order a cocktail, and try the smoked nuts.
Nice cocktails and a wide variety of beers!
Don't leave without trying their New Fashion
Great cocktail selection
a popular pregame spot for raven and 1015, so it's usually busiest between 10 and 1130!
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.
Great cocktails, great atmosphere, a pool table, and dog friendly.
Here you'll find many classic cocktails as well as the new. The bartenders are all well versed in crafting proper drinks. If you're lucky,one of them will make you the Laphroaig Project.
Excellent cocktail bar without the pretentious attitude of many mixology spots. Excellent cocktail list and an even more awesome whisk(e)y selection.
Try the Bloodhound, great drink.
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.
Gets a little crowded, but the cocktails are great. Try the recoil if you're into ginger beer.
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.
Good cocktails, a pool table, and lots of brogrammers milling about
Go early, say before 8, and hang out with Amanda. She's the friendliest bartender around.
Pool tables, video games, taxidermy, and old fashions. What else needs to be said?
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 a Blackjack Buck before you play Buck Hunter.
Bloodhound with kettle one for $9 is a steal!
Killer liquor selection up in here. Highly recommend The Laddie Ten, malted with only Scottish barley from Bruichladdich's 2001 resurrection.
A dozen whiskey/bourbon cocktails, all great and not too sweet, plus Buck Hunter.
Drinks are totally free all the time!!!
One of the few bars where Buckhunter actually goes with the theme.
The recoil is the best drink
Pick an old fashioned variation and kill some moose on the HD Buck Hunter set.
Don't order the woodsman unless you like your drink to be 75% vermouth. Also, the "black stormy " (dark & stormy w black rum) has virtually no rum. In other words, don't get it at all.
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.
Stand against the back wall if your feeling a bit like a devil
Beer is terrible. Stout really sucks. Pilsner like donkey piss :(
Rudy has an epic beard & is great, make sure you tip him well (;
I always order the recoil. It will change your life.
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.
Get with the rustic theme and play Big Buck - or pool. You know, whatever.
