Nihon Whisky Lounge
Where we've featured it
Nihon is dark, lounge-y, and has a ton of fancy Japanese whiskey. The bartenders are super knowledgeable and all the cocktails are great. The upstairs area is also a fun place for a bigger group to hang out and discuss the pros and cons of finally moving to the Mission like you always say you want to.
When: Daily, 5:30-7pm
The Deal: ½ off select food and cocktails
While it doesn’t look like much from the outside, Nihon Whisky Lounge has serious bartenders and awesome drinks, plus very good Japanese small plates. The downstairs bar has a bunch of stools to post up, and the upstairs area has plush couches and chairs for comfier drinking.
