Longtime San Francisco bartender Kevin Diedrich finally has his own bar after mixing up drinks at hotel bars like Burritt Room, Jasper’s, and BDK. Called Pacific Cocktail Haven, or PCH, the cocktail bar has 18 drinks ranging from approachable (a take on the mai tai) to adventurous (like the Santorini Summer, with Bols yogurt liqueur, gin, cucumber juice, ginger juice, lime, cilantro, mint, and a splash of tonic). All are in the $11-13 range, except the large-format drinks — which run for $78 — and are served in a Baccarat crystal decanter.
Take a closer look at some of Diedrich’s drinks below. PCH is now open Monday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., eventually opening on Sundays as well.
