Blackbird – Castro
Blackbird is the Four Barrel of bars, the kind of place that can make you feel terribly unhip and out of place if you let it. The drinks however are fabulous and actually somewhat affordable for what they are. I had the Blackbird Royale, a mixture of gin, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, lemon lime bitters and sparkling white wine that tasted exactly like Fresca.
Despite the fact that it’s hard on my wallet, I have to say I really love that so many bars in San Francisco are ditching the cosmos and creating concoctions filled with bitters and liqueurs that bring to mind smoke filled speakeasys and underground jazz clubs. I feel like drinking is getting sexy again.
