There is no sign announcing this place, so be on the lookout for the overflowing planter boxes. These colorful flowers flank ornate doors of carved wood and glass. Inside, a quiet bar and private tables await, as well as a friendly welcome and great service.

An elegant Parisian bistro meets a casual San Franciscan eatery at this Hayes Valley establishment. Located on Gogh Street, Monsieur Benjamin is a handsome affair with contemporary dark-wood furniture and butcher-paper-topped tables illuminated by suspended light bulbs. Once you're done taking in the simplistic glory that the bistro glows with, order up a pommes gaufrette, then proceed to something like the duck confit or go for the Mediterranean seabass, if you're a fan of seafood. You should pair these gorgeously plated preparations with something from their well-considered wine list. And, finish the meal with one of their divine desserts, perhaps the Palmier ice cream or gateau marjolaine - you'd be soon coming back for more!
The Royal Cuckoo is an adorable spot, perfect for a date or for an evening of quieter conversations with friends. The interior of the place is beautiful; it's dimly lit with Christmas lights and the glow emanating from small, glass lamps create a warm ambiance. Wood dominates the interior of this place and its attractive bar, Vinyl-record background and the Hammond B3 organ are hard to miss. The place serves beer, wine and spirits but it is most popular for the impeccably-made cocktails. The Old Dance, The Rosy Nail, Danish Daisy, Bitter Cup, and the Royal Cuckoo are some of the many famous and dramatic concoctions served here. The place plays only old-school Vinyl records and hosts live music on certain nights of the week. For those of you who wish to get away from the hipster ambiance, the tree-lined, flower-covered patio awaits patiently.

The beautiful space is available for private events as well.
Located within SF's historic Fairmont Hotel, Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar is a kitschy bamboo lounge that is for anyone who always wanted to visit the set of “Fantasy Island.” During the happy hours, indulge in some fruity umbrella drinks, the simulated tropical storm (yes, it really rains), and the intentionally cheesy soft-rock house band to lull you away to that paradise cruise you never took. Snacks and meals are both pricey, but the food's not the main reason for coming here. The Kalua pork is a highly recommended menu item, but you had best order them with a round of Mai-Tais; they're rumored to be the city's finest.
