15 Romolo

Map & Directions 15 Romolo Place
San Francisco, CA 94133
  • Daily 5pm-2am


SF Weekly's Description

Aaron Smith's rejiggered 15 Romolo has developed magnetic powers, attracting even those who'd rather avoid the North Beach crowds. The dim bar hits the perfect balance of Barbary Coast and design boutique, flavored with a few drops of rockabilly dive. The bartenders switch up their featured drinks frequently, so it's hard to know if a concoction that's there one week will be there the next. The mixologists have been known to get inspired by a root or berry from the morning farmers' market, so prepare yourself for something fresh and creative. The Spaghetti Western, for instance, combines American rye and Campari with organic tomatoes and a splash of pilsner. If you're hungry, try the Dirty South Burger, which features ground beef in a bun, topped with barbecued pulled pork. It's served slider-size to help you exercise portion control. Believe us, you'll be glad.

    "We do not serve your kind here" My kind? I'm sorry but hearing that from a bartender I'm automatically going to take major MAJOR offense to that. Whether or not that idiot individual didn't mean what I assume, one should never say that no matter whatt. That person should not only be fired but should be exiled from this melting pot of a city. I'm sorry the last time I checked... More >>

    15 Romolo is serving the best bar food in town (bar category, not restaurant-bar category). And of course, the drinks are among the city's elite. [Eater 38 Member]

    Pimms cup is amazing... and the Burgers are only 6 bucks! A GEM!

  • Rohan S. on 09/08/09

    Pimm's cup!

  • Tina Hui T. on 09/18/10

    15 Romolo has the nicest ambience. Mellow, cozy but not claustrophobic like those casual chic bars on the east coast.

    Pimms cup is good but if you're daring order a Last Word made with Fernet
