Unfortunately not just a place to watch former Suns All-Star Tom have a meal, Chambers is the poolside booze-and-food replacement (from the couple behind Mighty and Wish) for the old Bambuddha Lounge in the Phoenix Hotel, sporting a new woodsy library-like decor augmented with walls of LPs, lumberjack plaid furnishings, and two booze-backed bars that'll sling 11 super-simple signature cocktails -- all named after their base spirit (i.e. The Tequila Drink) -- plus a constantly changing menu with plentiful small bites and entrees like a DIY sizzling Kobe tri-tip served on a piping hot Japanese stone.
601 Eddy St, San Francisco, CA 94109
Chambers, inside the Tenderloin's Phoenix Hotel, has two sides: the interior, evocative of a contemporary speakeasy with dark-wood walls and shelves of records, and the exterior, which features a poolside patio (and a roll-down enclosure) so you can enjoy your drinks in the sunshine, no matter how windy it is. The menu features next-level bar bites like roasted beets with burrata, creamy polenta, and pork belly with tomato kimchee, as well as a hearty burger with shiitake relish, manchego cheese, and kewpie mayo.
