Tour description provided by Viator

Go behind the scenes of the swanky happy hour scene in San Francisco’s famous Union Square on this adults-only cocktail tour. Walk to three cool cocktail lounges and feel like a VIP with tables reserved just for you at each place. Plus, you’ll get a true insider perspective by talking to the owners and bartenders! Try classic and unique cocktail creations from top mixologists, paired with delectable small bites prepared by celebrity chefs, and learn all about the city’s lively bar and cocktail culture from your local guide. Cheers!

This small-group tour is limited to 12 people, ensuring a more personalized experience.

Your tour departs at 4pm from Serrano Hotel in Union Square, a public plaza and vibrant shopping, dining, hotel and culture center in downtown San Francisco.

Follow your local guide on an easy, flat half-mile walk to three of the area’s most talked-about cocktail lounges. At each place, you’ll feel like a VIP as you’re ushered to a table reserved specifically for you, plus you’ll get the inside scoop on the city’s cherished bar and cocktail culture by meeting with the owners, bartenders, mixologists and industry experts.

Enjoy one drink at all three places, which vary depending on the day of the tour. Savor San Francisco’s most storied drink, the Pisco Punch, or sip high-end Hudson Whiskey from applewood-smoked snifter glasses torched right beside your table. Pucker up for a spicy tequila cocktail at a historic speakeasy, or head to Clock Bar for a Chartreuse Swizzle, once voted one of America's top 10 cocktails!

Pair your luxurious libations with delicious bites such as a scrumptious blue cheese mini-burger, arancini and sweet shishito peppers prepared by celebrity chef Charlie Palmer, or indulgent bacon and cheese popcorn crafted by none other than Michael Mina.

While your Union Square cocktail lounge tour ends a few blocks from Serrano Hotel around 6pm, your guide will gladly point you in the right direction to continue your evening with more drinks, dinner or entertainment nearby.
