If you want a nice respite from the streets and the ever-present cloud of dope smoke on the streets of San Francisco, this is a nice, classy place to stop in for an afternoon refreshment. The decor is deep stained wood paneled. Bartenders are old...More

I went at night. I don't know if they have shows during the day or only at night. Make sure you make a reservation at the bar, not the restaurant if you want to see the piano show.
