My girl and I were walking the wharf area after hitting the Buena Vista and stumbled on their new place. I was... More

We stopped in two mornings for a Bloody Mary, while in town. The Bloody Marys were delicious both days... unique flavor and a bit spicy! The bartender was both friendly and professional... Nice place to drop in, while at the warf.

This used to be a old bar around union square. They relocated to the warf and it is really been upgraded. Bartendar was really nice and the prices are reasonable. I give them cudos!

In Fisherman's Wharf, this place serves cocktails at a reasonable cost, as opposed to many in the area. All sorts welcome! It was busy and we met interesting folk in there....

It was a Tuesday night, so it wasn't exactly packed. Lots of TVs to watch multiple games. Lighting was dark and decor was quirky. Drinks were well made and the waitress/bartender were attentive. Seems like a great place to go to get away from the tourists!

On a long walk down the pier area, we stopped here for a cocktail to unwind & regroup. Good drink specials, and our server Jo was awesome!
