An upscale restaurant for sports lovers, The Republic offers its affluent Marina clientele a place to both comfortably enjoy a game and indulge in some vivacious nightlife.

Young locals in nice jeans and Giants caps plant themselves at the zinc-topped bar for prime access to the twenty craft beers on tap, while gangs of J. Crew men throw back Happy Hour specials, argue college football, and vie for the attention of dainty girls sipping muddled cocktails.

Preppy professionals tend to gravitate toward the leather seats in the spacious dining area, taking advantage of the dim lighting to sneak peeks at the multiple TVs overhead while sharing sweet potato tater tots with their well-heeled dates.

Long after the game, the DJ-led club music gets kicked up and the energy rises as trendy couples pour into the bar to loosen up with rounds of mojitos and signature Cougar Juice, a concoction of acai vodka, huckleberries, agave, and mint.

Unless a few Giants have reserved the secluded lounge area, larger groups in a VIP state of mind gather beneath framed pictures of vintage city landmarks to enjoy some exclusive people-watching.

For the avid sports fan looking to catch the game in style, The Republic is the perfect place to share a microbrew with friends, cheer on a favorite team, and indulge in some stylish but rowdy revelry.

Average rating:
The Bottomless Mimosa Brunch of Champions.
Jiordan C. Mar 1, 2013
$24 (before tax and tip) at Republic on a Sunday buys you bottomless mimosas and a densely packed breakfast burrito. The mimosas, though not particularly strong, really are endless. And though $14 is a bit steep, it's money well spent in an in-demand restaurant in the Marina. The service is good too: attentive enough for a crowd of rowdy drunkards on a weekend morning, but elusive enough for hours spent at the same table sipping an endless drink with a set price tag. The breakfast burritos ($10/each), like any of their meaty hash plates (bacon, steak, what have you) or protein-laden nacho platters (chicken, beef, you name it), are heavy on the meat and not too greasy, not too queasy-cheesy. The price is right, with quality over quantity, but more than enough food per plate for any one person. Republic's environment is sports bar chic, with every sport on every channel playing on huge flat screens and dark woods, creating a warm, if not yuppie vibe. It's not exactly shabby-chic either, with women and men dolled-up at just about every table. The music is Top 40 - just loud enough to create a club vibe on an early afternoon. If you're there for bottomless mimosas (and you probably are), then Republic is everything you'd want it to be: trendy and not particularly expensive.
