SF Weekly's Description

CLOSED The venerable (opened by Ed Moose in 1973) Washbag (as named by Herb Caen, frequently to be found there ingesting his Vitamin V, aka vodka martinis) has been resurrected by Liam Tiernan and Susan Tiernan, after its unfortunate brief rebranding as the Cobalt Tavern, which closed in January 2008. The place looks as timeless as it always did (polished wood, gleaming brass, white linen tablecloths, lots of framed memorabilia), and serves up traditional American comfort-food specialties, high and low (steaks, burgers, salads, pastas) to a horde of happy regulars. There's a rotating list of nightly piano players, and live jazz at Saturday and Sunday brunch.

Tips from foursquare

  • Bravo on 11/11/10

    Old town North Beach Favorite. -Tim Nugent, Top Chef Just Desserts

  • The Bold Italic on 03/10/11

    Follow in the footsteps of legendary WashBag regular Herb Caen and order a Stoli straight up with a twist of lemon. (He called it his 'Vitamin V.')

  • John C. on 11/01/10

    Place is closed.

  • Missie B. on 12/12/09

    Locals call it the WashBag...I call it a fun night in old San Francisco! Live entertainment, great food and service.
