Where to Drink in San Francisco

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: 

  1. Comstock Saloon
  2. 15 Romolo
  3. Rickhouse
  4. Burritt Room
  5. Clock Bar
  6. 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.
