Best Place to Pretend You're a Redneck 


It's appropriate that a state in which Clint Eastwood once held elected office should pay some kind of homage to the cultural trappings of the Wild West, but San Francisco, obsessed with its self-endowed status as an island of ironic high culture, has pitifully few entertainment offerings in this vein. Bloodhound, a new SOMA bar, goes some way toward remedying this defect. Featuring a gorgeous antler chandelier, spit-shined wooden saloon floor, and the essential arcade shoot-'em-up game Big Buck Hunter, Bloodhound feels like the kind of place where you could hire a desperado to defend your homestead from railroad company goons. The menu features an admirable sampling of classic cocktails at $9 — try the Jack Rose, built around the colonial American spirit applejack — and a wide-ranging menu of $5 draft microbrews and $8 Belgian beers. These last may not be Clint's style, but they sure taste good to us.
