Five Superb Mixology Spots in San Francisco

Jun 21, 2012 —  We San Franciscans take getting hammered very seriously. It’s an elevated process these days, no more rolling down to the corner store for a twelver of Schlitz – at least not with the same regularity that we used to!

No, we demand a little more from our boozy conquests. A little more class; a little more craft; a little more time before what we’ve ordered ends up in our glass.

(There’s definitely a spoken word poem in there somewhere!)

From the notorious grit of the Tenderloin to the tourist-trampled insanity of North Beach, right down windswept Mission Street and reaching out to the foggy beach, finding a solid cocktail in San Francisco is as easy as burning your buns on a nearby hill, getting a parking ticket, or having your bike stolen for the forty-eighth time.

Here’s a sampling of some of our favorites. Bring a bike lock this time.

I'm pretty sure I could live at the Burritt Room. Although Rye does have amazing gin - their name is deceiving.

SF is a city that really appreciates mixology and bartender collaboration. Bourbon & Branch is definitely on my list to check out the next time I'm in town.
