The Page – Lower Haight
The Page is a bar lover’s bar; it has all the qualities that make my heart go pitter patter. First of all, the bar is dark. Very, very dark. The sporadic red and yellow lights create a rosy glow that softens all of the hard edges of reality.
The Page has an excellent beer and whiskey selection in addition to good cocktails. The bar gets quite busy even on week nights, but the service is efficient and friendly. The crowd is mostly made up of young professionals, but it’s definitely a neighborhood joint, so the vibe is very casual- think dot-commers in silk screened hoodies from etsy and jeans, not business suits. Adding to the delightful atmosphere is a wall full of taxidermy and a billiards room.
I’m not sure I can properly put into words why I love the atmosphere of this bar so much, but if I had my own bar, this is the decor and feel I would want. It’s simply a quintessential bar.
