Cool hip bar, really interesting cocktails. Great experience, will definitely go back. We had a few bites, and will probably go back for a meal.

Loved, loved , loved this place! We had a group of 14 to celebrate a birthday. Had a five course set menu which was simply out of this world. I tried food that I normally don't eat and loved it all. Cocktails were also amazing....More

Great cocktail menu with plenty of variety. Bartenders are friendly and efficient. Decor and ambiance are also great. Bar area can get somewhat crowded.

We sat mesmerised at the young lady who threw together the best cocktails, and who made it look effortless and simple. This young lady also pointed us in the direction of another bar on the east side of SF who made the best bloody Mary's...More

Just wandered in here but what a nice eclectic gem! The cocktails were interesting and tasty: Old fashion, Mt Aso and Simple Mescal! We only had small plates, as we have dinner plans, but get the Josie's bread and chicken sausage skewers! Served with an...More

We stopped in for a cocktail and had a tough time finding something we liked. The first problem was no vodka. The One-Eyed Jack is thick and creamy with sherry, rum and a few other ingredients. It's very strong. The Spring Assassin was bitter and...More

Great bar! This was an idea of a local (friend of the girlfriend) since we're out-of-towners. Friendly staff making fantastic drinks! Lots of liquor options... Will definitely be back when in San Fran! It was a late night visit and we had already eaten, but...More

Made dinner reservation for a Friday night. I chose this place since I was going to take my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner and he loves his old fashioned drinks and small bites. The bar was crowded but their dining area is just right...More

Great spot for a low key but sophisticated feel and even better for bar hoping adventures in SF. It does have that hipster vibe along the lines of "we only employee heavily tattooed people and make kimchi and hand craft everything" but it's quality so...More

Went for a late dinner and drinks gathering with friends. Wait staff was friendly, informed, and helpful. Food was tasty and high quality. Excellent beer and mixed drink list. Unfussy, casual atmosphere. Remember, it's in the heart of the Haight, with all the street energy...More

The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and
Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of
the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage
clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops.
While the Summer of Love ended decades ago,
Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of
hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through
its streets can still feel like stepping back in time.
