It's been a while since we updated the Eater Cocktail Heatmap, and so here we are, bringing you the very best of new bars and restaurant bar programs that have debuted in the winter and early spring, mixed in with the mixology standard-bearers that continue to ring our bells. Consider it your back-pocket guide to the new and old essential bars of San Francisco. As always, state your proposed additions and subtractions in the comments, or send us a good old-fashioned e-mail.
