Tips

  • The Tradition is complete with its own proprietary bottled, aged spirits, and a lengthy drinks bible divided into various genres of drinking: tiki, Irish pub, speakeasy, dive bar, etc.
  • Chocolately and boozy, the Borracha Abuelita ("drunk grandmother") made with tequila, chili-spiced hot chocolate and Mezcal-infused whipped cream is a surefire way to keep you warm during the winter.
  • Snag a confessional-like snug (aka booth) and order a Mind Eraser to rewrite those woozy college memories. This version is deliciously rich and dark:
  • Get the Afternoon Tea Sour. Best gin cocktail I've had, period.
  • Same owner as Bourbon & Branch so you know the cocktails are good. The vibe and bartenders here are slightly better though
  • The Sazerac is world class, but if you're a real spirits fan you've got to try the Bulliet Rye and Green Chartreuse barrel-aged spirit. It's simply awesome.
  • Caroline is amazing.
  • Afternoon Tea Sour, best gin-based cocktail in SF.
  • No hats? Get over yourself, Tradition...
  • Get a 12 Mile if you like Bourbon. So good.
  • Get a drink like Mom used to make.
  • The French 75 is a great drink!
  • Afternoon Tea Sour. Delicious. Do it.
  • R.I.P. 441 Club
  • Have a choose-your-own-adventure cocktail outing with your office mates at Tradition, a fantastic bar featuring a cocktail menu divided into sections showcasing different cocktail traditions.
  • Pretentious.
  • Get a gin drink! they also have a house made Pimms
  • Try the Sazerac because it tastes good and gets you drunk.
  • Industry Special is your best bet. A blue collar brew (pbr, high life, or schlitz...yes, I said schlitz) + a featured shot. Ideally it's the Wild Turkey 101. Recognize.
  • If you like bourbon, get the 12 mile. My friend describes it as "summer in your mouth" - tasty.
