As a financial district homage to Bourbon, Rickhouse cocktail bar is an exposed brick and wood-ceilinged creation from the founders of San Francisco nightlife staple, the Bourbon & Branch. Despite the impressive decor and well-stocked reserves, Rickhouse remains a casual neighborhood spot for any thirst profile, offering everything from strong liquors to well-priced wines and local beers. In groups of four, try their gingery “Pimm’s Punch” served in pure white bowls with large ice cubes shot through with berries. Or peruse the exhaustive, educational menu that’s broken down into chapters based upon cocktail style that highlights forgotten classics, such as the “Claridge” with gin, dry vermouth, apricot brandy and Cointreau. Head for the smaller bar at the back to avoid the crowds in the front.
