Nothing special... Nice atmosphere...but I really hated the popcorn treated with some sort of truffle oil... disgusting!

If you are looking for a drink close to union square, check out this place. It's a 3 min walk (2 blocks) on geary st. Dark inside and they make nice mixed drinks.

I was there wth a group of people, the atmosphere was great, the service goos, however, it's not the best place to socialize, as the acoustic is really very bad. In any case, it's good place for a drink.

The hawthorn is not easily found. But once you get on it, get in and get down...then you will be down with it - I am sure I'd that. Music was great, great atmosphere. Drinks are OKish priced. Limited selection of beer.

We were looking for a place on Union Square for a drink. We headed in here. Pretty cool place along with $12 and up drinks. Drinks were decent.

What a tucked away little surprise! The entrance is very unassuming, but we were quickly enveloped in this cozy basement lounge. We enjoyed food drinks and service in a relaxing, funky atmosphere. Stop in for a cocktail or two if you're nearby!

I swear I saw some of the types of people I work with here, exchanging secrets. It's that type of place where you know listening devices can't pick you up, satellite images can't find you, and the darkness of the cellar will hide your persona....More

Great Moscow Mule... too bad it was $15 after tax. Bartender was really nice. Music was awful until the last 30 minutes when it suddenly got really good and everyone went from sitting to dancing. Nicely decorated. Slow on a Thursday but probably busy during...More

Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
