Tupper and Reed
May 11, 2018
The guys behind the The Devil’s Acre in North Beach and the now legendary Bourbon & Branch have opened a new East Bay spot in the old Beckett’s space on Shattuck. Their new cocktail bar, Tupper & Reed, is one of the best in the neighbourhood. Housed in a near 100 year old building, the room is dotted with old-school phonographs and vintage records; they also play host on occasion to small jazz ensembles. It’s got that kind of vibe. And the drinks, what of the drinks? The attractive two storey space boasts a wide-ranging cocktail menu (designed to look like the programme at a symphony) and an even wider range of craft brews. The former roam from classic tipples like the Corpse Reviver and the Sidecar to new creations like The Leggo Brick, a blend of El Dorado 12-Year, lemon, pineapple gomme, egg white, peach bitters, vanilla-almond black tea tincture. Yum.
