Perched atop the Moscone Center, B bar has panoramic views of Yerba Buena Garden, St. Patrick’s Church, the Jewish Museum Plaza and the downtown skyline. The landscaped, fountain-decked terrace is a go-to spot for the SoMa after-work crowd, which congregates amid pitchers of sangria and trays of oysters ($1 each from 4:30–6:30pm). Bar manager Marjian Simovics’s intriguing cocktails deftly incorporate ingredients like lavender and cinnamon bitters and wine reductions. (We recommend the So Tough, a cocktail made with rye, malbec reduction, angostura bitters and orange zest.) You’ll also find a respectable selection of rye, bourbon, scotch and whisky and beer by the pint or pitcher.
