Proudly not at all attempting to make their double-entendre subtle: Swallow Lounge, a cozy boozer from Adam Tucker (Rapture, 2826, Fever) and David Gustafson, with whom Tucker had previously started a bikini modeling company, because that's just what guys do. Up front's almost diner-like, with booth seating opposite a 25ft marble bar backed by LED-lit swallows; this gives way to a live-music back patio, as well as an upstairs lounge covered in 1950s velvet cheetah prints. Besides finding out what happened to Chester's grandfather, you'll also enjoy:
The Girls: They've got pinup-style cocktail waitresses, complete with pencil skirts, corsets, fishnets, and flowers in their hair, prompting you to say, "if you're going to San Francisco, could you get me a gin & tonic first?".
The Booze: Barman John Banda (Plush, Glass) is making his own syrups & infusions, then pumping out everything from classic Manhattans & Old Fashioneds to originals like the rye/cuke gin/Chambord/Grandma "Jimi Hendrix", sure to make you think every lady's foxy, and every guy's named Joe.
The Sex Drink!: They actually invented a packaged supplement: SINsual. Made outta Mucuna pruriens & maca root extracts, GABA, ginseng, and Horny Goat Weed, they claim it'll "promote blood flood to your erogenous zones" if consumed 30min prior to sexytime, and that it "mixes well with alcohol", as in the Red Bull, Canadian whisky, and peach schnapps "Forbidden F**k" -- something you'll proudly attempt, before ending up at an actual diner.
