What a great little neighborhood bar. Great drinks, dark, great lighting with a fun crowd. Super narrow bar with a great bartender named Dave. You have to hit this little place up in a hip part of SF. Everyone that sipped their drinks seemed to be a local. Nothing better than drinking in that environment!

We asked a local for directions to a different bar and he didn't know where it was but was willing to walk us the two blocks to Tony Nik's. A narrow bar that is seldom crowded and everyone we met lived within several blocks but most were either on that block or within a few. Super nice patrons, nice bartender and cool atmosphere. A bit pricey but most bars in SF are. Old School bathrooms with old style faucets and reminiscent of Rome, they are TINY although the women's is larger than the men's. Men's is about the size of a bathroom on most jets. Cozy place for dates or just mingling with the local folks. Not a jerk in the place.

Cool little bar in North Beach with surprisingly friendly/attentive bartenders, considering how crowded it gets. Drink prices are reasonable, if not slightly on the high side, but this is SF. The bar area is very small and is immediately when you walk in so if it's crowded, it's hard to find a place to stand and navigate through people. There are some seats beyond the bar and it's got dim lighting with good music. Good for just hanging out for a couple drinks, in a non-touristy bar.

Enjoyed a great cocktail with my husband. This doesn't look like a great place from the street. Dave our bartender was warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. We'll add this stop to our future visits.
