Best Bar Snacks 

Lion Pub

The Lion's impressive spread of free snacks, laid out every weeknight, harkens back to the days when San Francisco saloons would serve up fresh oysters, caviar, baked ham, and other thirst-inducing treats for the price of a nickel beer. The pub's happy hour feed isn't quite so grandiose (and the beer costs more than a nickel), but the cocktails are made with freshly squeezed fruit juices, there's a roaring hearth and an impressive selection of hot toddies for those frigid midsummer evenings, and the cozy, candlelit interior (with adjoining back lounge) is a pleasant place to tipple and nibble. The lack of a sign and the impressive wooden front door encourage the impression that you're entering a speakeasy or some other secret hideaway.
