Time Out Says

3 out of 5 stars

It seems unlikely, but it’s true: You’ll find one of the best selections of whiskey, rye, bourbon and scotch at this groovy, mural-covered Tenderloin dive. Large-scale art looms over the rowdy pool table, and the graffiti-covered, grimy bathroom feels like a bad drug trip. “On the rocks” is about as fancy as it gets here—the bartenders seem averse to pouring anything more involved than a beer or a shot. And though the spot offers six beers on tap, most take advantage of the $7 deal: a whiskey shot paired with a tall can of PBR.
