Higher-end cocktails with a bustling youthful business crowd during happy hour. The news-themed environment is classy and lends itself to the cocktail menu and its prices. A favorite place to visit when I'm in town.

Limited seating and limited selection of cocktails. However... Good place to go after work, live music is a nice change of pace and cocktails are reasonable priced.

Great place to grab a drink on market in Fidi area. If you blink you'll miss the front door as it's kinda hidden. One you walk in, you'll be greeted with a guy sitting on a chair to check ID's, and then head downstairs to the dark bar.

The live jazz made this place what it is...oh and awesome cocktails too. Prices for drinks are ~$11-$13 per drink. Bartenders know their stuff though and can give great suggestions.

A little hard to find but you want to stay on market, the door next to the t-mobile store on the corner. It's dark, interesting, speakeasy vibe, with some old typewriters, retro stuff. And the cocktails drinks are lethal/strong and good, recommend the Ava Gardner and the Local edition. Nothing to snack on tho, can't club a light dinner, drinks plan. Good option for after dinner.

It's dark, sexy, huge, and they make good cocktails. When I was there we were evacuated for a fire drill, and somehow I ended up with a free drink. Firemen showed up, adding to the sexiness of the entire experience. I also happened to be there with people who were way to attractive and cool for me, so basically I was just feeling really good about myself. All in all an interesting afternoon. The eponymous bourbon based drink is a strong recommend (and a strong drink).

Fancy cocktail bar, drinks are delicious but pricy. The vibe is a bit more upscale, and there is ample seating which is great for unwinding after work.

Good place to go with friends or coworkers. A bit too loud / dark. Great when they do live music.
