  • Alex S.It's one of those places that sounds better than it actually is. Great drinks, but everything on the food menu is just a little off.

    55555 by Alex S.

  • Alyssa WStill one of the best cocktail bars in the city. The liquor selection is huge.

    55555 by Alyssa W

  • Alex RGreat cocktails. Tasty and just the right amount of alcohol, not too boozy and not just water. Tried one-eyed jack and mount aso.

    55555 by Alex R

  • Liza JGreat Blood and Sand cocktail, also recommend the bone marrow appetizer.

    55555 by Liza J

    55555 by Ale D

  • John G.The bread and butter is SO GOOD. Future you will thank present you for ordering it.

    55555 by John G.

  • Philip T.Good drinks nice setting. Old fashioned good

    55555 by Philip T.

  • Chris W.Great cocktails and impeccable music selection. Played Mac DeMarco and Tame Impala deep cuts while I was here.

    55555 by Chris W.

  • Brad T.One of SFs original mixology haunts and forever loved bc of it. Southern Exposure is a must and single-handedly responsible for turning me into an alcoholic.

    55555 by Brad T.

  • Brant ABeautiful and well crafted cocktails

    55555 by Brant A

  • Victor M.Nice selection of cocktails.

    55555 by Victor M.

  • Will B.Grab a seat near the windows on a weekend afternoon after a walk in the park.

    55555 by Will B.

  • Liz JNice beer on tap, but the bartenders and selection is the real draw to this place. One person asked for Pliny the Elder and was send down the street.

    55555 by Liz J

  • Michael B.Go for the drinks, not for the service.

    33333 by Michael B.

  • Kyle M.Amazing whiskey tasting flights!

    55555 by Kyle M.

  • Catherine Fortin-DubeOriginal cocktails, awesome staff, great vibe!

    55555 by Catherine Fortin-Dube

  • Alex ASazerac and pork belly sliders.

    55555 by Alex A

  • Emily KaneIt's not a cocktail menu, it's an anthology. Each drink is given its own creation myth. Be prepared to commit your time and taste buds to trying more than two.

    55555 by Emily Kane

  • Scott SoenenFavs were the bread and bone marrow. Duck hearts are also recommended.

    55555 by Scott Soenen

  • Melon L.Phenomenal cocktail menu. Southern exposure is a can't miss.

    55555 by Melon L.

  • Nicole HortonThe barkeep wasn't the friendliest. The whiskey was good and the bar food was moderately priced but I feel like this is a place for regulars and not the one time patron.

    55555 by Nicole Horton

  • D O.Great bar. A little hip but just not too much. Really friendly staff.

    55555 by D O.

  • Andrew G.Brooklyn was amazing

    55555 by Andrew G.

  • Jason hLook at their cocktail menu and order whatever speaks to you.

    55555 by Jason h

  • Ashley M.This place is beyond packed, all of the time, except for lunch time mid week. They have great food, mid priced, and cocktails that will get you inappropriately drunk mid day.

    55555 by Ashley M.

  • David HOutstanding

    55555 by David H

  • Kevin BBecherovka and tonic #Beton time

    22222 by Kevin B

  • ClareNice cocktails, fancy food

    55555 by Clare

  • SFistThe Blood 'n' Sand can be found on menus as far back as 1947; it's Scotch whisky, cherry brandy, sweet vermouth, and orange juice.

    33333 by SFist

  • Dmitri SkjorshammerHaiku d'etat and sazerac were very tasty!

    55555 by Dmitri Skjorshammer

  • The Tastes that Make the CityThe bourbon old-fashioned is the best bourbon cocktail in SF, making our list of "The Tastes That Make the City: SF Edition."

    55555 by The Tastes that Make the City

  • AFAR MediaThe bartenders here take their mixology seriously. As in "this has the essence of elderflower" in it seriously. Try the "Shine On You Crazy Diamond," which is pepper juice and gin.

    55555 by AFAR Media

  • Ian WalterGreat sazerac

    55555 by Ian Walter

  • Konstantin CPerfect bar with good food, great drinks and young crowd. Get bone marrow and a haiku d'etat!

    55555 by Konstantin C

  • Morgan BellerGo for the pickled quail eggs. Just trust me on this one.

    55555 by Morgan Beller

  • Brad T.A great place to discover your inner-alcoholic. Try anything but don't miss the Southern Exposure.

    55555 by Brad T.

  • Ben R.Rebuilding their kitchen has allowed them to strengthen an already strong menu. Some of the most overlooked food in town.

    55555 by Ben R.

  • Deborah AThe brandade was a nice twist on a classic dish.

    55555 by Deborah A

  • Tye ChaitGreat cocktails and atmosphere. Sazerac is my favorite and the celery one is popular.

    55555 by Tye Chait

  • Chris M.The Sazerac 
is an ode to the Big Easy. The Bourbon Old
 Fashioned is nothing more than a slug of bourbon on the rocks with bitters, a little sugar and lemon peel to take the
 edge off.

    55555 by Chris M.

  • Stef KriegerDelicious cocktails in a cozy space right on Haight St.

    55555 by Stef Krieger

  • Aneilia M.Pink quail eggs!

    55555 by Chefs Feed

  • Andy J.Drink, drank, drunk.

    22222 by Andy J.

  • AFAR MediaWe always get snacks like the pickled quail eggs & sumac potato chips with yogurt dipping sauce, a sandwich (I love the beer-battered rockfish), & a tasty, inventive cocktail.

    55555 by AFAR Media

  • Kaela JAhhhmaahzing cocktails. Haven't yet tried new kitchen, but I enjoyed their food last time I was there.

    55555 by Ben B.

  • Alyssa FooteThe cocktails are unique and fabulous! The dining room is small, but the food is so unusual that it's worth the struggle to get a seat.

    55555 by Alyssa Foote

  • David H.Order a whiskey or rye older than you are... While you can

    55555 by David H.

    55555 by Brad G.

  • Graham J.Renovating. Kitchen is closed. Should be reopening soon. Cocktails are still as good as ever.

    55555 by Rupert H.

    55555 by Becherovka Voyager

  • Sara R.Great place to catch a mid-afternoon craft cocktail and relax.

    55555 by Sara R.
