The basil gimlet was amazing! And most notably, the service was on point! Friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about all the cocktails. I suggest coming on a weekday to get more attention from the bartenders. Even they recommend to not come on weekends! Each drink takes a few minutes to make, so I could only imagine the chaos when it gets packed!

Tasty and creative, but they over dilute & under pour. Rye looks a lot like a quality cocktail bar, and the bartenders can talk the talk, but if you pay attention, you'll notice that they shake your drinks a bit longer than usual and they underpour the liquor. The result is still a tasty drink of the correct volume, just a little watered down and lacking body. You may also find that whereas three drinks is quite enough some places, here you can have 4 or 5 and only be approaching a buzz. No doubt this is appreciated by the management, but probably less so by patrons expecting a drink they've had elsewhere to be as good. I'd expect their liquor distributors are less than thrilled as well.

Just went to a terrarium making google event at a store in the mission. Rye supplied a mobile bartender who made terrarium inspired drinks! My favorite had layers of chopped fruit and a ginger foam. It was so delicious and creative. Can't wait to check out their space.

Rye Bar is one of the best bars in the Tenderloin. The bartenders there know what they are doing and the drinks are delicious, strong, and won't cost an arm and a leg. On some days, there will be food vendors inside selling anything from tacos to egg sandwiches but somehow no matter what the food is, it always seems to go well with my drink. The bar is fairly big and has enough space to house a large group, provided you get there early enough. I think it's a great place to gather some friends, grab some drinks, and begin the weekend.

I was expecting more fresh ingredients, didn't see many fresh options on the menu. I get the impression they could have made something wonderful if I had asked for it though. Pool was free and smoking lounge is handy. Very dark, probably best to go at night.

I recently had a wonderful experience with Rye's mobile bartender. I'm not a all...just don't like the taste of alcohol. BUT I decided to try one of the cocktails that was specially made just for the event I was attending. Holy cow. I wanted to steal the bartender and take him home with me to make me drinks all day everyday! I was extremely impressed!
