2. Smuggler's Cove, 650 Gough (at McAllister).

Step into Smuggler's Cove, with its décor of bamboo, fishing nets, and even a waterfall, and you can't help but smile. The fun factor is a huge draw, but owner Martin Cate's drink list, which combines classic tiki drinks with new creations, is what keeps people coming back. So does one of the best rum collections around, with over 300 bottles. Veteran bartenders will make sure that your flaming Top Notch Volcano (demerara rum, lime, pineapple, passion fruit, Maraschino liqueur, cinnamon) will appease both you and Pele.

1. Jasper's Corner Tap, 401 Taylor (at O'Farrell).

Even though it's a relative newcomer, the perfect combination of great cocktails, casual atmosphere, and a team of talented bartenders make Jasper's Corner Tap San Francisco's top cocktail spot. The bar showcases both beer and spirits in many of its cocktails; and drinks like the haunting Black Cross (black-tea-infused Smith & Cross Rum, Dubonnet Rouge, Belle de Brillet, bitters) maintains an ideal mix of interesting and delicious.

  • 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.'"
