Foursquare Tips

  • It's dark in here, and there are dead animals hanging from the walls, but records spinning and divine libations make it Eater's go-to in the Outer Mission/Bernal nabe.
  • Dimly lit, sexy, hodgepodge of mid-century thrift store lamps, paintings, & furniture accented with shades of red. A strong small batch spirits selection.
  • SF Weeklys Best Of 2011 Winner Editorial Pick BEST NEW BERNAL HEIGHTS BARGreeted by a harmonica-toting bouncer who then passes you to a blind & drunk organ player
  • Phenomenal cocktails and a great funk library on vinyl. You really can't go wrong here.
  • Best Negroni in SF. Yeah, I said it.
  • Lavay Smith on the organ.
  • If you don't visit the smoking patio in back when it's open, you're missing out on life.
  • Nice atmoshere but limited choice of cocktails
  • Elderberry Fizz, the best drink in town
  • Lovely Live music
  • A cozy little Bernal cocktail den; good for first dates, post-dinner friend drinks, and listening to organ solos.
  • Don't sit in the back unless you're prepared for being surrounded by major makeouts.
  • Great cocktails and music
  • A bar quiet enough to talk in and get seats in. On a Friday night. Please don't tell.
  • Cucumber gimlet.
  • Take my advice: you'll hate this place. No really; stay away.
  • Delicious moscow mule!
  • Fantastic cocktails and liquor selection are enough to make this an awesome bar, but add Hammond organ and old-school music on vinyl and you won't want to leave...
  • The moscow mule moscow rules.
  • Plan on staying longer than you think.
