Looking for something special for NYE. I walked into Swirl, which was a hive of activity. The guys inside where so helpful, with suggestions of wine and cider. Highly recommended!

The owners and people who work here are very knowledgable and the place is a lovely and fun spot for an after work drink or two. I love all the sparkling wines and champagnes. Wonderful place.

From the outside Swirl lools like a great little wine shop but at the rear there is a little seating area to have a drink while you buy. Would definately visit again.

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
