Each time I'm in SF I make a point to go to Bix. Definitely not cheap, but well worth it. Jazz piano, jazz singer, art deco interior in a historical Jackson Square building plus creative food makes it worthwhile! The entry feels like an old...More

our evening at Bix was terrific-the setting is beautiful, supper club feeling with great music. I liked being upstairs where you can view music and bar but still be able to visit. ( it can be a little hard at times to hear each other)....More

Love the charm of this place. We had a round booth downstairs close enough to the piano player but not so close that we couldn't carry on a conversation. Both of us had fish that was prepared perfectly. Plus they really do cocktails correctly.This is...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.

No dress code, but I expect to dress classy casual. I also may dress in coat and tie. For women, smart attire is good, and not "low" casual.
