    Drinks at this cocktail bar are named for Pantone colors and employ unusual spices and even the odd beet. Try Grandma’s Sweater, made with gin, blood orange, and a rhubarb liqueur.

    Cocktail menu rotates. You can sit upstairs & eat. In the warmer months it can be stifling & in colder, just cozy.

    The drinks change every once in a while, the bartenders are very helpful, and they really pay a great attention to their craft. Lovely place

    #1 and especially #4 are must haves. A bit off the beaten path, but if you don't mind the Uber/Lyft this place is on point

    If you're hungry, head upstairs. The Impossible Trick Dog Burger is an impressive feat and surely one of the city's best burgers.

    The kale salad might well be the best thing I've ever put in my mouth! Drinks are fantastic & very creative. Ask for Chad at the bar, he'll spoil you!

    Favorite bar in SF. Drinks are always top notch, and the bartenders are the best you'll find anywhere.

    If you come before they serve food at 5pm you can always order from Salumeria next door and they'll deliver it to you at the bar.

    I love that the drinks are named after San Francisco tourist spots! I had Alcatraz and the Castro Theater... Whiskey FTW!

    Skip the clever-but-annoying cocktail list and get the bartender's recommendation.

    the whole pantone format menu is rather silly, hard to read it all at once w/out fanning each page out one by one. But the drinks in general are pretty good, friendly staff and they serve decent food

    Kind of speakeasy stylee. Come for a drink - the cocktails are great. It gets busy early! The wait for a table is long!

    The low alcohol drinks are really good. They use a lot of unique amaros, liquers, and bitters. Definitely try them out!

    Drink menus change every 6 months (no more Grandma's Sweater) some to the themes of Pantone colors, currently to astrology signs! Thrice-fried fries, addicting.

    Polar bear is really nice. St. Elmo's fire reminds me of kombucha- vinegary overtones that have me questioning whether I'm enjoying it, but i still finish the whole thing.

    My bartender was surprisingly nice, despite it being a busy Saturday night. The Gypsy Tan was delicious. Definitely going back to this spot.

    Service and cocktails are amazing, and some of the food is creative (e.g., beef jerky with a seasoned sour cream dip).

    The Grandma's Sweater (Pantone #787) is phenomenal - perfectly minty and refreshing. And don't be fooled by the unmarked exterior - you've found the right place.

    Great bar! Reminds me of NYC. I loved the Grandma's Sweater and the St Elmo's Fire cocktails.

    Don't spend all your time at the bar. Get your booty upstairs and order yourself some of the best chicken nuggets ever conceived.

    Great non-alcoholic drinks too among the amazing array from the Pantone menu. I hear it's because one of the owners isn't a stinker.

    The cocktails are awesome don't get me wrong but get a boiler maker: a shot of whiskey and High Life to wash it down for $6.

    The bartenders make amazing cocktails! Skip the standard beer and try one (old fashion). It will be worth it!
