A classic cocktail lounge opened 1941 in the heart of the Haight Ashbury district. Didn't know about this place and juste stumbled in because it started to rain. Deco is absolutely unexpected. Had a couple of very tasty and not to expensive cocktails.

The place is fairly unobtrusive on the outside, but inside you get a real feel for old American cocktail opulence. The cocktails were superb - I recommend the bloody mary. Also our bartender - I think his name was Chris - was super friendly, informative...More

Visited this bar for a quick drink which turned into several drinks. Atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. As were the clientele. Cash only, worth a visit.

The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and
Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of
the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage
clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops.
While the Summer of Love ended decades ago,
Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of
hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through
its streets can still feel like stepping back in time.
