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.
