In this past Sunday's Los Angeles Times Magazine there is a big feature on what's new in San Francisco: restaurants, bars, art and architecture, and retail.
I wrote the bars section. All bars were supposed to be less than two years old as of the writing of the story, with one exception for an unmissable classic. I chose Bourbon & Branch for that wild card. But anyway, that's the reason some other notable bars aren't on the list.
Additionally, I chose several of the bars to see on a walking tour- the first bars in the story. The order is:
- Comstock Saloon
- 15 Romolo
- Burritt Room
- Clock Bar
- Bourbon & Branch
I've done this tour with a few out of town guests. Note that if you're feeling ambitious you can add Rye and Cantina to the end.
The list is here. Enjoy.
Perhaps one day I'll do a write up of all the best bars in SF. I end up sending that by email to bartenders visiting the city all the time. It would save me the typing.
