House of Shields

Bar in Downtown, Civic Center & SoMa

Flash back 100 years at this gloriously restored mahogany bar with original 1908 chandeliers and old-fashioned cocktails without the frippery. You won't find any TVs or clocks, so it's easy to lose all track of time. This is one bar Nob Hill socialites and downtown bike messengers can agree on – especially over potent Sazeracs in dimly lit corners.
