We wondered into the bar after a full day of sightseeing. It was picture perfect with its small bar atmosphere and playful bartender. Just what we wanted in some well made drinks at a very reasonable price. Great Martinis, shots, amoretto sours, margaritas and fun....More

Came across this little bar whilst exploring China Town. Mark makes a great cocktail, not over priced like lots of places in San Francisco and his recommendation for a Chinese restaurant was spot on.

Since this was on the list of top dive bars in San Francisco, we had to stop in for a Buddha beer. The bartender (perhaps owner) was very nice and served us quickly. She had a great sense of humor too. Great visit!

I’ve been to this bar twice and I’m always unimpressed. It’s a hole-in-the-wall, but I normally like those kind of places because they feel intimate. They are famous for their three penis whiskey and even have a framed sign with the history inside. The first...More

This place is a must visit whenever we are in SF. Small, dark and boozy. Always some characters in here, especially the bartender! For $8 you can get a mind erasing Mai Tai and if you get 2 you are good to go! You just...More
