Bluestem Brasserie

Comparatively low but undeniably lovely, this open-air terrace is better suited to gazing over Market Street than epic skyline views. A popular post-work spot, Bluestem is beloved for its thoughtful cocktails and classy but casual ambiance. The Toasted Sage Gimlet is a warm weather favorite, while the dessert-like Karl the Fog—brandy, Benedictine, Frangelico, coffee liqueur, brewed coffee and toasted marshmallow meringue—is a warming sipper when our city mascot rolls in. (Thankfully, Bluestem doesn't skimp on the booze or the heat lamps.) The extensive wine list is available by the glass, half-liter or liter, and you’ll find an impressive assortment of local wines on tap. Swing by for happy hour (4–6:30pm), when a percentage of the bar’s proceeds benefits philanthropic causes.
