    Decent but pricy cocktails.

    Nice change from your typical quiet, stuffy craft cocktail bar. Energetic, fun bartenders and rock music pumped through the speakers.

    They have Laphraoig Quarter Cask here! 🙏 If you're not in a whiskey state of mind, La Bonne Vie is gin-based and delicious.

    Cocktail heaven, a great place to chill and grab a drink! I recommend a cocktail called Forever Young. I want to try the punch bowl next time in SF. Loved the character and ambiance.

    1920's theme with a speak easy vibe. Be prepared for strong drinks and a hidden atmosphere.

    The "Bone Apart" is an absolutely fantastic cocktail made with a very peaty Scotch whisky. Do it.

    Local beer.

    Order the Laphroaig Project. It's not on the menu but it's 1 of the most amazing cocktails you'll ever have if you're a whisk(e)y cocktail fan. Smokey,fruity w/just the right amount of sweet.

    Russell Davis' spot (of Bar Rescue fame). Grab a drink, head to the back and up the stairs for a more quiet experience. Gets packed and a bit sloppy on weekends.

    Normally this place is cool, but tonight I came with 10 colleagues and the bartender was having a bad day and was a dick. Honestly, if you are having a good day just stay at home.

    Christian Espana · July 10, 2014
  • Patrick A.

    Tell the bartenders what you like, then ask for their recommendations. This is not a place to order a vodka soda.

    Patrick Acton · June 15, 2014

    Hey asshole, order every single fucking punch bowl, then a vieux carre, then a motherfucking death in the afternoon and say goodbye because you will be happily destroyed you god damn piece of shit

    The A Bone Apart is an excellent choice.

    Get "A Bone Apart" or the "Rusty Development" - solid drinks. They also have a sour beer 👌

    If you like gin, try a Gipsy. It's excellent.

    Jürgen Kiener · May 2, 2014

    The perfect blend of urban chic meets 'Pirates of the Caribbean' (but in a GOOD way)! Delicious drinks, awesome selection, and will definitely be back!!
