Mix equal parts martini lounge and piano bar. Add a twist of flamboyance and garnish with a hint of kitsch. Shake. Shake. Shake. Whether you like it dry or dirty, shaken or stirred, this martini bar in San Francisco is sure to intoxicate. With sing-a-long cabarets, unique flavours of martinis (dragon fruit, ginger lemon drop, and cherry blossom to name a few), personable bow tie clad waiters, and regulars that you will either think are funny as hell or wish would get kicked out, boredom is not likely. And there is nothing teeny about these martinis. It doesn’t take long for the crowd to loosen up; before long everyone will be swaying together and belting out Elton John hits whether they like Elton John or not.
