Bar in Downtown, Civic Center & SoMa

Head down a Jackson Square alleyway and back in time at Bix, a speakeasy-style supper club with white-jacketed staff shaking martinis at the mahogany bar. The restaurant's good – order the steak tartare or the potato pillow with caviar – but the bar is great, with nightly live piano and jazz combos. Look sharp and swagger; reserve.
