In the depths of a landmark that’s been around since the Gold Rush lies this subterranean speakeasy just a few blocks from One Market Center. An evening spent down in this cavernous, dimly lit cocktail lounge will transport you to the past as you sip on drinks inspired by the people, places and things that made up the newspaper business of the 50’s and 60’s.
For the spontaneous, head straight to the bar and grab a drink from a suspender-clad bartender slinging drinks bearing playful names with a historical twist. Order up a Stockholm Swizzle, a Spanish Fly or try out the Lieutenant Governor that gives typical whiskey drinks a run for their money.
A reservation gets you a table along the wall lined with red velvet booths and white leather chairs pulled right out of a scene from the 50’s. Sit amongst old-school typewriters, printing presses and read newspaper clippings from San Francisco’s past while you wait for your next cocktail.
