The Ambassador - CLOSED

Map & Directions 673 Geary
San Francisco, CA 94102
  • Mon-Sat 6pm-2am


SF Weekly's Description

The Ambassador has two distinct personalities. On the weekends, it's a sweaty, sticky-floored night club with a DJ and a door policy (but no cover); on the weeknights, it's a party-friendly, but perfectly respectable, bar. If you're looking to go out on a school night, check out $2 Tuesdays, when you can drink and eat decent bar food for $10. It feels like a sexy art-deco bachelor pad, replete with cool chandeliers and distracting big-screen TVs. If you're feeling bold, the leather booths have old-timey phones built into the seats and, yes, people actually use them to hit on neighboring tables.

Tips from foursquare

  • Bravo on 01/27/10

    This is a nice bar with black leather booths and an area upstairs with its own mini bar for your special private party. -Mattin Noblia, Top Chef

  • AskMen on 05/19/11

    With its overstuffed leather booths, decadently long bar and phones at every table, puts the intrigue and romance back into cocktailing.

  • Cheapism on 03/05/11

    The $2 Tuesday happy hour offers sliders, bruschette, Tater Tots, chicken wings, quesadillas, and Caesar salads. Well drinks are also $2, as are 10 bottled and draft beers.
