SF Weekly's Description
First things first: the name of the bar/lounge/venue is the Burritt Room, which is located inside the Mystic Hotel. This boutique hotel is sleek and polished, but with enough antique design elements to bring it down to earth. The same aesthetic applies to the bar, which is located on the second floor. Chandeliers and candles give warmth to the deep wood floor, modern couches, and stark white piano. The bar is front and center with a jaw-dropping selection of spirits. Beer and wine are here, too, but very much an afterthought. You're here for a cocktail, and each libation comes with paragraph-long menu description that somehow neglects to reveal the price (the cocktails are all $10). Another notable feature: the Burritt Room is open every day at 5 p.m., so if you need a drink on Christmas, yep, it's open.
Tips from foursquare
SF Weekly’s Best Of 2011 Winner – Editorial Pick – BEST REASON TO STAY IN A HOTELReinvented seasonal & classic cocktails like Kerouac served in a dark-brick & exposed-wood-beam room are the best bet
We recommend ordering a well-made Old-Fashioned. Even when speakeasies were speakeasies, the drink was already seen as a throwback to simpler, boozier times.
The bartender is as delicious as the drinks. More of a fact than a tip.
Elegant and classy vintage inspired lounge in the Crescent Hotel. Attractive and attentive bartenders will expertly make you a delicious Dutch Blood or a Kerouac.
If you can get passed the abundance of dudes then there's no reason to not love this place. Have an expertly prepared old fashioned and enjoy the live music. The jazz is as tasty as the drinks.
