    Ask the bartender to make you a cocktail off the menu- their choice. They will ask a few questions and then come up with a great drink.

    Two Anchor Steams ($6 each) and a free lunch. Fancy lunch, but have to buy two drinks first. (OH DARN)

    Get a cozy booth and sip on the proper cocktails the fine barmen and women of Comstock prepare. Pass on the food which is greasy and heavy, though the Spéculos marshmallow cookie is silly good.

    If you pony up to the far end of the bar, be careful that you don't wack your knee on the protruding section. Mighty painful 😂

    A diverse selection of cocktails. If you're not sure ask the bartender to make you something. Be sure to start with the kinds of liquors / drinks you like. Not much on tap, plenty of beers in cans.

    Comstock was formerly a real saloon, and still has the pisser trough to prove it. More notably, it was one of the first SF bars to counter the fetishized cocktail movement with a laidback vibe. Read more
