Get funky at this self-proclaimed “party mixology” bar in the SoMa district. Furnished with mismatched sofas, chandeliers and old-fashioned globes, the eclectic space is a prime weekend destination for hipsters and tech workers. Deliberately disorienting, the quirky design is modeled after Villa Nellcôte, the Côte d'Azur mansion where the Rolling Stones partied and recorded in 1971. Easy-to-gulp original cocktails feature unusual ingredients such as mole bitters, tobacco tincture and maraschino liqueur infused with Indian curry spices. Meanwhile, throwback drinks (Grasshoppers, Between the Sheets, daiquiris), beer-and-shot combos (rye plus lager, or the popular cinnamon Fireball liqueur served with cider) and “social” drinks (punch bowls and oversized shakers served tableside) meant for four to seven people can jumpstart idling conversation. Soak up the boozy excess with nibbles including truffle fries, sliders Asian-style tacos and charcuterie. Those looking to amp up their night can hop upstairs to sister bar Audio Discotech, a DJ nightclub pimped out with premium audio equipment and bottle-service booths. There's no menu—drinks are tailored to demand, which often means fast-poured club cocktails like vodka sodas, AMFs, whiskey sours and old-fashioneds—made with craft cocktail ingredients and flair.
