Cold Drinks Bar
This is the first place we’ve ever been served a cocktail inside a box. Why not? You’re paying at least $18 for whatever delightful scotch concoction you’re about to consume, so they might as well wrap it up like a gift. Above China Live’s Market Restaurant in North Beach and accessed via a speakeasy-ish staircase, this bar feels swanky and ideal for a big night out. The majority of cocktails are rooted in scotch and whiskey, but they also serve beer and wine. You can also choose from a short snack menu of things like mala chicken wings, edamame, and peking duck fat popcorn, if you get hungry.
