“Great bar with 3 rooms in the Mission”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

This place is fantastic - just what you want from a Mission bar. It's lively, they make a good cocktail and they had several rooms so you can pick the level of crush/comfort, noise/quiet that suits you best.

The main bar is long and thin and can seem crowded quite easily - but even when it is full, it is normally easy to get service at the bar. The back bar is fun when it's quiet, but when it gets full, it can be quite loud. Also, when it's full, the service can be a bit slower and the cocktails a little more rushed so it may be worth going to the main bar for your drinks if there's a line in the backroom.

On a recent visit, we ended upstairs for the first time - the last few times I've been here, I didn't even realize there was an upstairs. There's no bar here, but there are seats and tables away from the main crowd.

Fun times!
