This place in Presidio Heights has red walls and deep-cushioned chairs that make it feel more like a cigar bar or a hidden room in House of Prime Rib than a wine bar. Aside from the comfortable seats, what makes this place so great is the live band that they somehow fit in here six nights a week. And even though the band takes up roughly 10% of the available space, somehow the music is never so loud that you can’t hear the people around you. It’s a great last stop of the night when you’d rather drink a glass of cab franc then go somewhere that requires taking tequila shots to catch up with the rest of the bar.
