Thad Vogler is known for being a pioneer of thoughtful cocktails made with high-quality ingredients, so it only makes sense that, despite its new(ish) location on Mission Street, his James Beard Award-winning cocktail bar continues to showcase his passion and dedication to seasonal and ingredient-driven drinks and food. The drinks are, of course, the hero, with the 34-seat (all booths) “tasting room” built to showcase a center island where the drinks are (mostly) concocted. The space awash with pale wood is sleek and beautiful, if not also a little stark. This is not a place where you settle in for a night of raucous drinking with friends. It’s a quiet, almost meditative setting where you go to appreciate serious cocktails, many of which showcase single-origin spirits from Bar Agricole’s spirits line. There’s also a front bar for walk-ins, perfect for those times when you still want a quality cocktail but with slightly more casual vibes.
How to book: Make reservations on Tock.
