Gifts for Getting or Giving from Bay Area Bars

I love bar souvenirs, because they remind me of bars I like when I'm not in them (which is rare).

With this list you can start your quest to collect them all. The good news/bad news is that almost none of these places have online stores so you'll probably need to go in for a drink.

I didn't include places that just sell t-shirts.

 

 

Gin and Tonic Glass from Whitechapel

It costs $10+tax.

"Girtha" Muddler from Comstock Saloon

The original version of this super fat, sugar cube-busting muddler Jonny Raglin created out of a bar railing that wasn't needed after they renovated the space. After numerous bartender inquiries, they had it recreated by Mr Mojito, though it's only available at the bar. The muddler alone is $29, or it is sold with a mini sugar spoon and Old-Fashioned glass for $40.

Punch To Go from Novela

For $20 you get a bottle of non-alcoholic punch mix, that you stir together with equal parts water and liquor at home. There are currently three options and each combo makes 8-10 glasses of punch.
