Burritt Tavern
Order this off-menu drink, and an Uber will take you to a secret club

This is literally straight out of some James Bond movie (except minus the part where a short Asian dude throws a hat at you)...

Right this very second, there's a secret drink available at Burritt Room + Tavern that when ordered, will get you access to a private social club, which an Uber (that's waiting out front) will take you to, totally for free.

Joe Starkey
The drink is only available in the main dining room, so first things first: snag one of these super-sexy booths. Second things second: ask for the Wingtip Vieux Carré Me Away. Winking probably isn't necessary, but you can do it if you want (... to be creepy).
Joe Starkey
They'll return with two things. First, this custom-made coaster with an embossed Wingtip shoe, so you'll know you've made it.

And second: the drink itself. Subject to availability and at a not-pocket-decimating $16 (considering what comes after it), the drink -- created by Wingtip's Bar Director Brian MacGregor -- doesn't skimp on the ingredients: Glenfiddich 15, Remy Martin VSOP, Benedictine, and two types of bitters.
Joe Starkey
While you're enjoying your meal, the restaurant will call the concierge at Wingtip (that private social club we've told you so much about) to let them know a very VIP guest is coming (you, it's you) in a group of up to four (who all have to order the cocktail).
Joe Starkey
Walk outside the Mystic Hotel after dinner, and an Uber black car will be waiting to take you over to the club in comfort.
Joe Starkey
You'll arrive at the regular, old storefront, walk in, and take an immediate right over to the elevator banks.
Joe Starkey
... enter the main lobby, where the concierge will have your name from Burritt Room + Tavern and'll help you figure out what you want to do with your night's access to the club. Do you want to:
... check out their almost-the-largest-in-the-city, exclusive whiskey collection?
Joe Starkey
In a room with a rotating fireplace where you can read or play games?
Joe Starkey
Or in the room behind that fireplace where you can wear a velvet smoking jacket and watch that game?
Joe Starkey
Or maybe grab a drink at the bar made with rare Japanese whiskey?
Joe Starkey
With ice from a machine that presses a block...
Joe Starkey
... into this perfect, non-dilluting sphere (/possible crystal ball)?
Joe Starkey
Or maybe just practice your swing on a state-of-the-art golf simulator that uses light and sound sensors to calculate the distance?

1. Burritt Tavern 417 Stockton St, San Francisco, CA 94108

Just off the Stockton Tunnel's front door, Burritt Tavern is Charlie Palmer's new imbued-in-dude den inside the Mystic Hotel, a throwback adjacent to the namesake bar w/ a 122-seat dining room wrapped in century-old natural wood, and filled with gunmetal-finished, steel-framed booths that're privatized with a close-able velvet curtain, so no one'll hear you asking your friend what "imbued" means.
