Cadillac Bar and Grill is a casual Mexican eatery situated in vibrant SoMa. The ambiance is lively and the staff personable, which makes for a great night out on the town. The restaurant highlights real Mexican dishes packed with flavor that pair well with their specialty hand-shaken margaritas made with fresh ingredients. Savor aperitivos like queso flameado or chicken panchos, followed by signature puffy tacos filled with ingredients like turkey chorizo, slow-braised pork or grilled steak. Seafood enthusiasts can opt for the grilled red snapper with Veracruzano sauce or the mesquite-grilled prawns. Excellent happy hours between 3p and 6p from Monday to Friday means this place is always abuzz with energy; it's a great place to unwind with friends after a long day.
While the mythical and much-hyped liqueur after which this establishment is named is not served here, many equally potent concoctions are. Specialty drinks, such as the Perfect Pear and the Ginger Rogers, seem to contain pure alcohol, and even a standard margarita packs an unbelievable wallop. If you're looking for something to help mitigate the effects of a strong drink, then ditch the regular bar peanuts for Absinthe's bar snacks. This bar offers bread with a smooth fig spread, croque monsieur and more. The menu changes daily, but any antipasto platter of cured meats is sure to please, as will the particularly rich duck confit. You can enjoy your meal in the main room or at a cafe-style table on the sidewalk, but if you're looking for a quieter spot, book a table in the private dining room.
SRO stands for Standing Room Only, a tiny cocktail bar behind the Odd Job Bar. If you are a cocktail lover then you should head to this place where every creation of the bartender will tease your taste buds. You can make your own cocktail by telling the bartender what drinks you want. This place is perfect for light conversations with friends over cocktails.
The Martuni's is a post-theater nightcap hot spot whose charms are many. The sophisticated, candlelit interior includes both a main bar as well as a piano bar with live performances. Patrons are generally well-dressed and well-to-do, which contributes to the elegant ambiance. Wednesday is singles night for gay men (although it happens on just about any other night, too).
Fig & Thistle is located between Octavia Street and Gough Street. This is an intimate place where one can spend time with friends while sipping some of their classy selection of wines. The staff here is very friendly and can be relied upon for selection of your drink. The ambience is very warm and cosy with little benches and snugly cushions. It is a great place for a date or to have long conversations with friends. They also serve cheeses and charcuterie made from locally sourced meat.
Located in Hayes Valley, Biergarten is a popular outdoor watering hole. Sister to the German restaurant, Suppenküche, this traditional beer garden features sleek wooden picnic tables, mood lighting strung between the trees and fence, and a corrugated metal bar serving liter sized mugs of German beer. The cuisine is typical Bavarian, with bratwurst, a cabbage, carrots and beet salad and the ever popular soft pretzel with sauerkraut gracing the menu. Be sure to dress warm if you plan to come in the evening, the garden does not have heating lamps and San Francisco nights are notoriously foggy and cold.
