For anyone in-the-know, heading to downtown San Francisco for drinks is a nightmare. But Tropisueños Margaritas are enough to make anyone consider a night in no man’s land. Nuzzled between the city’s largest shopping centers and across the street from museums, expect this place to be packed with tourists and shoppers—but don’t let that deter you. Tropisueño functions as a taco bar by day and serves other flavorful Mexican dishes by night. The Margaritas made with chile salt, however, are served all day long.
THE DRINK TO DRINK:
Though the Margaritas are killer, venture deeper with the Duende, which adds a little absinthe to the classic drink.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:
It’s a popular spot, so make your reservation a day in advance and come thirsty.
