This 2,000sqft bar was once home to a printing press and a glass blowing studio, and though those things are both pretty cool, we’ve found that we have a lot more appreciation for the open space now that it’s home to a laid-back cocktail bar that serves quality cocktails without the mustache wax and pretense you’ll find at some other SF spots. There are over 300 spirits to choose from, but we always start with a "Forgery Original" before moving on to one of the classics with a twist. (The Fall Gimlets and Sour Cherry Negroni are also favorites.)
