Getting to Know the Hottest Cocktail Bars in San Francisco

Last updated 5 years ago

San Francisco, California is a city world-renowned for its gorgeous architecture, rolling hills, and thriving nightlife. Its countless cocktail bars, in particular, make it a great place for qualified bartenders to find work and join a lucrative industry. Read on for an overview of some of San Francisco’s best cocktail bars:

Bar Agricole

The bartenders at this 11th Street bar pull out all the stops to ensure every drink they serve is among the best in the city of San Francisco. Five different types of ice and mostly-local spirits, juices, and produce are just a few examples of their careful considerations. Their drinks have been described as “flawless” and “perfectly measured,” ranging from Old Fashioneds to classic Ti Punch with rhum agricole, lime, and cane syrup.

Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant

Space is tight at Tommy’s bar, but if you manage to get a seat, you will be rewarded with one of their fabulous margaritas, made with fresh lime juice, agave syrup, and your choice of tequila. Tommy’s has a huge collection of 100% blue agave tequila, and those who join its Blue Agave Club get full access to the very best bottles in it. As an added bonus, club members also learn about the production, history, and enjoyment of tequila.

Smuggler’s Cove

As its name suggests, this fun bar is decorated with all the ambience of a pirate’s hangout, from bamboo and seaweed to chains and a working waterfall. Their drink list contains both the tiki classics as well as many unique creations. They have over 300 bottles of rum on their shelves, so be sure to try a rum-based cocktail, such as their flaming Top Notch Volcano with demerara rum, lime, pineapple, passion fruit, Maraschino liqueur, and cinnamon.
