Comstock Saloon Revealed, Classic Cocktail Menu and All

New, 12 comments

Intrepid Eater SF photographer Betsy Kershner managed to get a look inside the new Comstock Saloon in North Beach, which publicist Sarah Logan says is still set to open Thursday, May 20th. The long-awaited new venture from Absinthe's Jonny Raglin and Jeff Hollinger in the old San Francisco Brewing Company space is stylish enough to possibly lure actual San Franciscans to the foot of Columbus, not to mention after-work tipplers from the FiDi looking for a soothing cocktail.

Like the food menu, the cocktail menu is heavy on classy classics, and with a nod to the "Bartkeeps's Whimsy," it looks promisingly unpretentious.
