Oprah Winfrey-Approved: The Five Best Moscow Mules in San Francisco

Posted By on Tue, May 24, 2011 at 2:27 PM


On Wednesday, May 25, Oprah will no longer be seen in her 4 p.m. time slot. Our afternoon bestie for 25 years will exist no more, fled for her own cable network. Her 30-day countdown and goodbyes from famous friends has seen us shedding a few tears. The best thing to dry those tears? Booze! SFoodie has set forth on a countdown all our own: the top five places to get Oprah's favorite cocktail, a Moscow Mule (vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer, traditionally served on the rocks in a brass cup).

We grabbed our best girlfriends (none as cool as Gayle) and did all five in one night. You get a Moscow Mule, you get a Moscow Mule, you all get a Moscow Mule! Our booze-soaked findings follow.

5. Elbo Room


Elbo Room easily has the biggest Mule for your moolah, coming in at just $7. Plus, the lighting is dark, so anyone can shed a tear on the sly. After all, Oprah taught you that it was okay to cry, but not to break into the "ugly cry." (Oprah says she did it only once, when she met Mary Tyler Moore.) You may have thought the photobooth in the corner could only double as a makeout closet, but it can also be the private crying room for when the end comes.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
