Tony Nik’s

Lounge in North Beach & Chinatown

Vintage neon points the way to Tony Nik's, keeping North Beach nicely naughty since 1933. This tiny cocktail lounge is co-owned by the original Tony 'Nik' Nicco's grandson, who has preserved the glass-brick entry, deco wood paneling and Rat Pack–worthy martini recipe. Aim for the vintage banquettes in back, or hang with neighborhood characters at the mosaic bar.
