This Tenderloin cocktail bar is where pretty people come to guzzle basil gimlets. The candlelight flickering off the dark wood bar casts everyone in a flattering glow, and the soundtrack—which spans old-school hip-hop to indie rock—feels more dance-y than date-y. To escape the crowds, pop out to the patio. The impressive selection of whiskey, rye and bourbon, coupled with generous bartenders, helps everyone’s cause.

This place is cool. My only gripe that on any busy night, you're going to wait 20 minutes to get eye contact with a bartender because of how packed it is and how long it takes to make their cocktails.

They make em really well though.
