If you want drinks and a bite on the Embarcadero, Hard Water is a good option. The pork belly cracklings here are delicious or you could get some oysters, but the real reason to come to Hard Water is for whiskey. They have a massive selection on a wall stacked high and wide enough that it almost looks like a Harry Potter potion shop, and since it’s booze, you can have as much fun as if it actually were.
