The Residence

Map & Directions 718 14th St.
San Francisco, CA 94114


SF Weekly's Description

Entering the Residence is like stepping into a sumptuous Victorian parlor. You almost expect to hear a fire crackling in the background. Instead the bar mixes old-timey appeal (like the ample eclectic seating options: fur covered poufs, velvet couches, and a black velvet fainting couch tucked in the back corner) with modern bar amenities (like the flat-screen TV). Small and cozy, the dark wood paneling and dim lighting make everyone look attractive. The crowd is calm and friendly, a healthy mix of neighborhood regulars. There's a standard 5-7 p.m. happy hour with discount well drinks and beers, but the classic cocktails, like potent Hurricanes, still cost full price. Other attractions: On Sunday nights there's a barbecue on the back porch, and on Wednesdays the owner hosts a wine and liquor tasting.

    Modeled after where a hard-drinking, worldly writer would want to unwind after a day at the typewriter. Try the Manhattan and wobble away with a smile.

    Go on a Wednesday to sample some good eats from pop-up, Easy Creole. Fill your belly with red beans, spinach and mushroom étouffée, and gumbo, then wash it all down with a tasty adult beverage.

    the best bar in the area. never too crowded, bar tenders are always up for a chat and the cocktails are delicious.

  • Clifton T. on 04/27/10

    Perfect when blackbird is too loud and crazy.

    Cash only, the bartenders are awesome! Try the English breakfast!
