We visited this bar and restaurant while on a cruise stop at San Francisco. What a strange place to find in the middle of a modern, vibrant city like San Francisco! Steampunk is the best word I can use to describe the interior (technology and...More

Old fashioned with character. There is live jazz. The drinks are good enough and the food is good but overpriced. Nice place to get a drink.

We only stopped in for a quick drink and some tasty oysters, but this place is worth a visit if you're passing by on Columbus Avenue. One of the classier and less touristy venues on the street, has a great character. Our server was less...More

Fun bar with terrific bartender Anthony. This was a one man show. The jazz band upstairs was really good. The burgers and fries looked amazing

Fantastic old fashioned bar and superb happy hour drinks and offers. The bar is better than the restaurant side which is dark and dim though

Saw this place on the "Layover". Was not impressed though. Was very busy so service was slow, which is understandable. Drinks just weren't very good. We liked the drinks up the street at Devils Acre much more.

Pros: Great folk behind the bar (ask them to invent something, they will, and it'll be amazing). They do a small menu of very decent food. Chilled out venue and quiet enough to hear what the people you're out with are saying. Cons: None based...More

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
