Taverna Aventine

Bar in Downtown, Civic Center & SoMa

Back in SF's wild Barbary Coast days, the Aventine's 150-year-old building fronted the bay – you can still see salt-water marks on the brick walls downstairs. Now bartenders hit a high-water mark during happy hours (3pm to 7pm weekdays), mixing bourbon and whiskey cocktails fit for a sailor.
