This record store-turned-bar in the Mission focuses on good food and good wine. The wine list is balanced between whites and reds from California and Europe, and includes a few dessert and bubbly pours. The elevated bar fare is excellent enough to make 20 Spot feel more like a restaurant than a bar, so no wonder it’s a dinner date destination.
Occupying a corner spot in a former record store with the original neon signage still intact, 20 Spot’s cool and laid-back vibe invites patrons to linger long enough for small plates, a Potato Pizza or Pappardelle Pasta Dinner, and a few glasses of wine. The heated parklet lets customers spill on to the sidewalk from its Victorian home venue, like an extended house party. Bottles to-go are 40% off the list price, and the menu is particularly big on pet-nat and Hungarian wines.
