New Boozy Book Arrivals for April 2014
Tons of New SF and East Bay Bars Opening in May 2014

Cocktail Menu: Dirty Habit in San Francisco, Opening May 1

Dirty Habit is the horribly-named bar/restaurant in the former Fifth Floor Restaurant space in San Francisco. The interior, though, is sexy, with space-age lighting and a huge new patio. You will want to drink there.

I had a preview of many of the drinks (sorry, no photos) and they seem pretty split between super-fruity-friendly and serious cocktails, and it's easy to tell which will be which when you read the menu. There are also barrel-aged and shareable drinks, served in fun vintage glassware - and one served in a lunch pail. 

Dirty Habit opens on May 1.
