If you want to learn about wine, you could come to Arlequin and talk to any of their super helpful employees about what you’re into, and they’ll help you find the perfect bottle. After you do that though, you should uncork it and head to their backyard to drink it. It’s in the middle of Hayes Valley, but feels like you’re in a secret garden far away from San Francisco. The phone service back here isn’t always the best either, so if you really want to feel like you’re getting away, that makes this place even better.
