This old-timey cocktail bar offers a welcome reprieve from the typical collegiate-tinged watering holes along Polk Street. It’s charming without feeling precious; busy, yet not overcrowded. Distressed concrete walls, flickering candles and pressed tin ceilings lend the impression of romantic decay, and single-bulb light fixtures evoking Parisian lampposts arch over each table. The bar starts filling up around 10pm, when gussied-up singles arrive in groups. Should you hit it off, the booths (built from old cable car benches) make cozy nooks for getting acquainted.
