    The godfather of the market-fresh cocktail movement in San Francisco, situated in an unexpected nook of the TenderNob, with a pool table, a smoking patio and some flattering soft lighting, to boot.

    My favorites are the egg white drinks. They don't taste eggy at all. They just add a nice smoothness and frothiness to the cocktails.

    Bring your patience when you come to this TL-bordering bar. These hand-crafted cocktails take time, but good things come to those who wait. Check the chalkboard for the featured drink.

    If you want an amazing cocktail without a bunch of unnecessary speakeasy snobbery, go to Rye. Good prices and friendly service. Note they have ZERO food so make sure you eat before.
