    Great cocktails. Recommend their merchant mule and version of old fashioned. Bring a friend or two, it's nice to hang out here.

    A good cocktail bar in a somewhat seedy area. Kind of emblematic of its neighborhood (the "Tender-Nob").

    For your cocktail and whiskey needs if you're downtown. Walkable, but if the TL weirds you out just take a cab here.

    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.

    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.
