Can one person drink at every bar in San Francisco?

Cheap Happy Hour – Hotel Monaco

Last week a friend took me to the Grand Cafe Brasserie and Bar at Hotel Monaco for an inexpensive happy hour treat. The bar offers small plates ranging from $3 to $7 with affordable drink pairings. I generally don’t equate hotel bars with good deals, but I was surprised by the tasty offerings at Grand Cafe. The 1/2 dozen oysters for $6 were the highlight of the menu, but the flat bread and salmon tartar were excellent as well. The house white and red wines for $5 a glass were also quite decent.

  1. The Monaco has always been one of my favorite bars in that area. I’m not going to spend all night there and blow a zillion bucks but for an after work drink or a drink before heading out on the town, it’s nice.

    The Monaco in Seattle is also very nice.
