About
Just like its namesake Farley, the popular San Francisco Chronicle comic-strip character created by the late Phil Frank, Farley Bar is a Bay Area favorite. Understated and relaxing, it offers a small-plate menu, creative cocktails, cozy fireplaces, leather club chairs, and a bar crafted from a fallen tree. Farley Bar's merry mix of lodge guests and locals provides the social heart of Cavallo Point.

Amazing staff, amazing food, amazing drinks and an amazing location. Extremely priceworthy! And it's a hidden gem, at the time we were there it wasn't crowded at all. Jazz music in the background made the experience even better.
