Absinthe Brasserie & Bar

WHY HERE: There are many reasons to head to Hayes Valley, but this classic cocktail spot proves one of the best. The space has been doling out a sinful absinthe list since 1998, as well as good food, superb wine and solid cocktails.

WHY NOW: In an era of Nordic design and modern art, sometimes one needs to step into a comfortable place that brings to mind Paris during the turn of the century. Go for the French brasserie fare and a glass of good wine, stay for the pot de crème and a stiff nightcap.
