Cafe Du Nord
San Francisco, CA 94114
SF Weekly's Description
Descend into this subterranean nightspot and you'll find yourself in an intimate hideaway where good food and drink, a roomy dancefloor, and a wide and eclectic entertainment lineup keep the customers partying into the wee hours. Built in 1907, the former speakeasy's deep red walls, classic paneling and wainscoting, and 40-foot hand-carved mahogany bar make you feel you're in a vintage Left Bank bordello. A brief menu of salads, burgers, pizzas, and bar food complements the cocktails nicely.
