    A super cool bar, made cooler by the “Long now” association. Definitely worth stopping in.

    A fascinating theme, laid-back vibe, and great Old Fashioneds. Worth checking out, especially since it's a bit off the beaten path.

    The drink menu has really thoughtful descriptions of all the creations - don't rush your way through it.

    Favorite cocktail bar, easily. Full of amazing art and science pieces, nothing beats a Navy Gimlet, amazing bartenders, and cool things to look at. The back booth has a great view of the bridge!

    Cute cocktail list with little facts about the drinks' histories gracing each page. The space on the water is smaller than I thought from the photos, but is filled with interesting things to look at.

    Big menu, if you're feeling overwhelmed go for a Mezcal old fashioned or the Corpse Reviver. Park in the parking lots outside of Fort Mason because they're free.

    Cerebral cocktails in a space that feels like Stewart Brand's houseboat. Best Cuba Libre I've ever had. Get the navy gimlet if you pride yourself on your strong character.

    The Interval is a good place to sit and think about time. Glass beakers of small production spirits float above the bar, and the menu is split into categories that allow exploration of one drink. Read more

    Chock full of wacky mechanical marvels, books, and art, you might brush The Interval off as a steampunk Ruby Tuesday's, but you might get to hear a smarty-pants seminar while downing their cocktails. Read more

    Off the menu drinks? Hell yes! Of all the bartenders, Allen has a penchant for off the menu drinks and Haley is in the know, too. Ask for the Wonder Lust - you won't be disappointed :D H/T @vmbrasseur

    There are plugs. It's right on water. They serve tea pots and espresso in Heath stuff. Impeccable aesthetics: exposed copper piping in bathroom sink, Thomas Edison style lightbulb clusters on ceiling

    Order a Decanted Mother-in-law, it's a great drink to share. We serve it in an old time apothecary jar, so it's like a little pitcher. Get a double order so there's more to go round!
