The Rickhouse

From the moment you walk in you feel like you stepped into a cabin-like pub in the South. Or in the English countryside. I don’t know- just not in San Francisco. With it’s library wall of booze (pictured) and it’s catwalk wooden banisters on the second level. I really dug the vibe.

Even the live music was great, playing a totally unexpected genre of mellow jazz.

The Four Points was also a nice surprise. A bourbon cocktail made with grapefruit. Refreshing and dangerously drinkable. In fact, Uber has probably made more money off of this drink than the bar.

My only complaint, and yes, I’m that guy. The hard to please, always gotta find something sort… But acknowledging it is always the first step, right? Anyways, my one gripe is service. While certainly friendly, it is also buzz-killingly slow. Fortunately there’s a second, less crowded bar in the back. Unfortunately, it’s not as fully stocked as the front bar.
