This loft-like speakeasy is where the SoMa start-up crowd unwinds after-hours. Expect button-down- and blazer-clad business types in the evening and a preponderance of Mission plaid as the night wears on. The space is sleek yet unintimidating; dudes in hoodies lounge on tufted leather sofas and coworkers sip scotch-infused cocktails while facing off at the shuffleboard table. Want to scope out the scene? Climb the stairs to the second-level lounge for a birds-eye view.
