Meet your local guide at the Serrano Hotel in Union Square, a downtown mecca of shopping, dining and nightlife in San Francisco.
With your small group of 12 people or less, walk an easy half-mile to a triad of hip cocktail lounges. Upon arrival at each bar, sidle up to a table reserved just for your group and enjoy one of their signature drinks. Meet the owners and bartenders, who will tell you all about San Francisco's vibrant bar scene.

Your guide may take you to Clock Bar, where you can taste one of America's Top 10 Cocktails, the Chartreuse Swizzle, or you may hit up a historic speakeasy. Sip Hudson Whiskey from a flaming applewood-smoked snifter glass, try San Francisco's famous Pisco Punch or see if you can hack it with a spicy tequila cocktail.

Your 2-hour evening ends a couple of blocks from the Serrano. Ask your guide for suggestions on how to continue your night from there.
Please note: Bars visited are subject to change based on availability.
