    plush Victorian-style decor and eccentric upholstery. delectable cocktail menu translates nicely into a lengthy visit, and the dim lighting is forgiving of even the most rain-soaked of patrons

    cozy but spacious. they named one of their cocktails the "basic bitch" which would've been cool like a year ago but a for effort.

    No captain & I wish they had a beer list rather than making you awkwardly look at the taps, other than that, I like this place!

    Nice cozy spot, and the English breakfast is so refreshing. I hate the new sign though, doesn't adequately represent the ambiance

    One of the best bars in San Francisco. Go here if you want to have conversations with friends. Do not go here if you want to shout over loud music all night.

    The Residence has a reputation amongst locals. It will get you laid. A special kind of classy comfort stems from the red wallpaper, vaguely Victorian parlor room and unpretentious cocktail list. Read more
