An awesome bar. They have a good selection of drinks and beer, the people are great and the decor is really cool. Nice place to have a drink before seeing more of SF.
This is a Historic Lounge. Its a second oldest Lounge in SF since 1893. I didn't know about it when me and my friends visited it for the first time few years back. During our first visit we just randomly found this place as it was opened till late. It has couches and was very cozy so we really liked this place. After long time we recalled this place and wanted to go again. We tried searching it but couldn't find. They take cash so there wasn't any credit card transaction to find the name of this place. I tried searching lounges and bars on google but this place name never showed up. Then after few years I decided to drive to SF and search this place. I drove by all near by streets but couldn't find and was disappointed. Then finally I went to one restaurant (from where we searched this lounge previously) and yelped for lounges. I looked at all the nearby lounge pictures and in one of them I saw couches. So I suspected that it should be that lounge only. I drove there and as soon as I entered I was so happy to finally found it. I immediately ordered Gimlet. They have the best Gimlet. I sat on the couch and searched about this place. I found out that its the 2nd oldest lounge in SF since 1893. There was a huge earthquake in 1906 and this place survived it. There was one clock in this lounge which stopped ticking in that earthquake. They still have that clock. Its really awesome lounge and reasonable price. Its cash only and they have atm inside.
The place is cozy, and they have a decent beer selection. However, one of the bartenders was arrogant and called me out in a very disrespectful and mean way when I didn’t give a tip. Giving or not giving a tip should always be the costumer’s decision even though I understand that bartenders rely heavily on tips. It totally ruined the experience.
Decor was cute - I like the idea of all the games that they had there, board games as well as darts and more. Beer selection is awesome! Although, the place got very loud very quickly, which would be tough for a first date if you actually want to speak to the woman you are hanging out with, without yelling ...
The Shamrock is a classic. Oldest in SF for the right reasons. My favorite for 20 years and I'm a relative noob. Come by for backgammon, darts, or just a drink or three. No longer serving milk punch, but also not adjacent to dynamite factories, which seems a good trade-off. Don't miss it when you're thirsty in the park.
