A very fun and unpretentious place to meet your group of friends for an after work drink. Nothing overthought or fussy here. Get an old standard cocktail and pretend you are enjoying SF of decades ago. So glad House of Shields is still going strong!

Stopped here on a Friday evening with a friend visiting from out of town. The place was packed and I ran into quite a few people I knew - must be a common watering hole! I ordered a Moscow Mule which was served in one of those great copper cups. We were able to grab a booth after not too long and sit down with our drinks. It was fairly loud so this place isn't ideal for conversation and the cocktails can run on the pricey side. Regardless, it had a great downtown atmosphere and seemed to be a favorite among many.

House of Shields is a beautiful old bar... It gets packed almost everyday and it is often difficult to snag a seat. Drinks are reasonably priced for the financial district. Unfortunately, the service has been painfully slow the last few times I've been in. I understand that it is a busy bar but the bartenders were having long winded conversations with regulars that was really holding up the flow of drinks for other customers. Nice bar but be prepared to wait.

This off-Market bar gets pretty crowed with SOMA and FiDi workers, but the space is beautiful. If you can snag a space in the upstairs loft, you might have a little more room to breathe.

Great cocktails; no list but they'll mix you up anything you like. The newly restored bar looks great!
