San Francisco-North Beach
May 11, 2018
Located in the heart of North Beach, Tony Nik’s has been serving superior sips to a local crowd for decades. The bar dates back to the Prohibition era though the current owners only took over in 2000, but they’ve kept its character intact and this still handsome candlelit bar has an old-school vibe we love. There are glass bricks, a starburst clock, sleek curved banquettes and lots of warm wood panelling. It’s a great combination. The place is timeless in the best way and the drinks list features classic and contemporary cocktails, all made with expert care. It’s a top-notch neighbourhood spot, albeit a little on the small side, but with a dash of Rat Pack glam. The bartenders are friendly and it’s the kind of place you can easily and happily lose a few hours in.
