    Painkiller is great and bar tenders are really nice. Cozy little after work spot. Cash only.

    An unpretentious bar w/well crafted cocktails in a setting that feels like Al Capone's parlor. A much more chill option for when you're not in the mood for the crowds at Churchill.

    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

    Start a conversation with Peter when it is not busy. You will not regret it. He is the most awesome, friendly bartender I have ever met.

    Cash only, but they mix a solid gimlet.

    Great cozy cocktail bar with a decent beer selection on tap too. Went earlyish on a Friday night, never got super crowded.

    Chill, good cocktails, has a bunch of couches, and allows dogs. What more could you want?

    Great, unpretentious place to grab some cocktails. Particularly focused on Moscow Mules and whiskey.

    Get a Kentucky Mule! It's basically a Dark and Stormy but with whiskey, which makes it superior!

    The owner is an ASSHOLE. But a good one at that. I miss Amber.

    Don't feel like being in a noise bar around Market and Church? The Residence is the perfect spot for classic drinks in a stylishly decorated bar.

    No straws? Wtf?

    Get the Moscow Mule...can't beat the simplicity of Vodka, Ginger Beer and Lime Juice.

    cozy and low-key, but still a kick in the head. some of the best bartenders in the city are found here. :)

    Go on a Wednesday to sample some good eats from pop-up, Easy Creole. Fill your belly with red beans, spinach and mushroom étouffée, and gumbo, then wash it all down with a tasty adult beverage. Read more

    The great thing about this bar is that it's got really good cocktails, it's cozy, and it is hardly ever crowded. The bad part is that it always always smells funny. If you can get past the strange, Read more

    Really great bar, lots of ambiance/good drinks but couldn't handle the condescending bartender. Called me "baby" all night & took 20 min to close my tab. He's very LA; doesn't fit this old school bar.

    Shelley · February 3, 2011
  • Sarah R.

    Reminds me of NYC!!! I love this bar, still has the spirit of amber yet now more refined.

    Modeled after where a hard-drinking, worldly writer would want to unwind after a day at the typewriter. Try the Manhattan and wobble away with a smile.

    Fantastic, low-key spot for mid-week, after work cocktail.

    Perfect when blackbird is too loud and crazy.
