144 of 228:
The Buena Vista

WHY HERE: First opened as a saloon in 1916, The Buena Vista is not just a San Francisco institution but a national treasure. Best known for popularizing the Irish Coffee in America in the 1950s, it serves more than 2,000 of them a day.

WHY NOW: Sure, you could order something else, but why would you? The Irish Coffee recipe has remained unchanged today, with some of the bartenders on staff for decades.
