Went during SF Beer Week when they had beer+shot specials. They had a great selection of beer and it was fun place to hang out and chat with friends. Not too crowded, but definitely not empty either. The other patrons were pretty nice too. It was someone's birthday and they had a huge cake, so they shared some with us! I will be back!

This place is low-key (like a dive without being dirty), has great cocktails (without the pretense or eye-popping price tag), and is not that crowded - a very rare combination in the Mission. And who doesn't love their inventive seasonal cocktails? Some served hot too!

One of The City's best bars, a place to enjoy a well-crafted cocktail in a great neighborhood joint with friendly service. The bartenders aren't snooty like at some places -- Elixir really gives you the feel of an old fashioned saloon. Definitely worth a stop.

I like the old saloon feel. I have talked with some pretty cool people here as well. I hear they have a great trivia night- I intend to check it out soon.

This small little bar is a great spot to meet up with friends. I ventured here on a Saturday night and I was still able to find a table to sit at with my friend and enjoy our drinks. The vibe is very mellow. The music isn't too loud and they don't play pop hits. The wooden panels are a nice touch. The ladies bathroom has a weird set up where it is long and narrow. The bartenders were really nice and the crowd seemed really chill. Not a 20-something crowd...more like a 30's and up which is often a nice change.

Tiny but great atmosphere and helpful bartenders. Try the Pickle Back, trust me!
