    Here on Tuesday to Friday they do happy hour from 4 pm to 6 pm, and the deal is $3 draft beers, and $5 cocktails, which means their delicious concoctions are half price. Get there early for a seat. Read more

    This cocktail bar is just so good for so many different reasons. Come to eat or drink — with friends or solo — for brunch, bar bites, or a full dinner. Read all about it on

    Come here for a boozy reading experience. These sisters've got 4 beers on tap, wine by the glass, and excellent under-$10 housemade jerky (marinated in an apple cider/pineapple juice brine). Read more

    The specialty cocktails are very tasty. You really can't go wrong, I like the whiskey and bourbon ones myself. The books make for nice decor, not sure if anyone actually reads them though.

    The roasted wild boar sausage with Yukon gold potatoes in garlic and rosemary oil is to die for, and the homemade beef jerky makes Slim Jim cry in shame. Read more

    With an unfussy cocktail list and wines by the carafe, the cozy space feels as though it was dreamed up as the perfect spot to have a few drinks over simple plates of food that stuck in your teeth. Read more

    This place has the best drinks and the best staff. Kat makes the most amazing drinkings - I recommend her Yerba Buena 75 or ask for a Last Word. Amazing! Alex in the kitchen makes some great food.

    This tiny Hayes Valley haven brings a feminine touch to the classic 
via its worshipped Chamomile Old Fashioned, where dry chamomileflowers are infused in Old Forester 86 Bourbon.

    There are not enough great things to say about this pace. I recently discovered they have a happy hour and occasionally teach classes on Mondays (usually closed Mondays).

    Fantastic cocktails, but small plates, so be careful. The Corpus Christi packs a surprising citrus punch.

    Two Sisters Bar & Books is a tiny & wonderful place. Why potentially flood this gem by posting a highlight? Because I want the owner's success to be out of the park. Read more

    Fab happy hour; $5 old fashioned or $3 draught beer. Yes please. Cozy little bar with quirky selection of books and friendly staff

    The chicken leg entree is perfect. Pan fried and sits in in the dreamiest broth with capers and leeks that I just wanted to drink.

    Ask for the Dark Knight. It's not on the menu anymore, but it's crazy-delicious: gin, Aperol, Campari, and some housemade cherry-balsamic vermouth magic.

    Good cocktails (I had the old fashioned & manhattan). Cozy ambience. Amazing tea from Taylor Made Farms, especially the peppermint.

    I dig it! Small space and great/cheap happy hour specials. Try their daily cocktail. It gets loud/busy after 7:30pm though.

    Savory bar bites from the tiny kitchen pair nicely with bartender Michael Cecconi's elegant cocktails. Bonus: the monthly Books & Booze Club.

    Favorite cocktails in the city. Small intimate space that's good for catching up with a friend (or a book)

    They do brunch now. Or did they always? Either way, small menu, but the blue cheese & mushroom scramble was good. Super quaint place.

    Tasty cocktails in a cozy environment. The bar is tiny (with very limited seating), so avoid coming here on a weekend night.

    Has a quiet, neighborhood feel. Nothing extravagant on the cocktail menu, but go for some bar bites and a well-made cocktail.
