Russell's Room

501 Jones St

San Francisco, 94102

Just off the main entrance (directly behind the bar), RR's a hidden private room inspired by 501 Jones' former tenant, JJ Russell: an adulterous Irishman who moved to SF to ink a divorce, then in 1923 opened up a bogus cigar shop where patrons who requested the right stogie were escorted downstairs to daintily sip moonshine.
