Aub Zam Zam

Top choice bar in The Haight & Hayes Valley

Persian arches, One Thousand and One Nights murals, 1930s jazz on the jukebox and top-shelf cocktails at low-shelf prices have brought Bohemian bliss to Haight St since 1941. Legendary founder Bruno used to throw people out for ordering vodka martinis, but he was a softie in the end, bequeathing his beloved bar to regulars who'd become friends. Phones down, please; cash only.
