Lounges >Tony Nik's Cafe
Fantastic bar.. Fantastic cocktails, excellent service. Best bar in the city. Not for those who like to boogie down at post-teen clubs and lounges (like Velveeta Lounge on Broadway). Give it a shot. Have a shot.
Where the North Beach locals go. North Beach has several wonderful personalities to suit your mood. When you're looking to esape the hard-drinking, party-party atmosphere of the Broadway strip, Nik's is where to go for a mellow time out. The crowd is usually friendly, the atmosphere understated, and the drinks reasonably priced.
Always meet at Tony Nik's. I don't know what a "FAKE BLUE COLLAR CROWD" is, I don't think it exists, however, this little bar is an original from 1933. We come from the North Bay to drink here, where the bartenders are very friendly, the happy hour $2.00 draft is great deal and the bar snacks are totally original. This bar is always different with the changes of music and the different crowds. We have never felt uncomfortable there. If folks don't like blue collare crowds, then jum of the planet because you are everywhere.
Nice place, tired crowd. If you think pretending you are from the East Coast is fun then this is your place. Fake blue collar atmostphere crowd, where are the real stevedores?
One of the best bars in SF. Truly a San Francisco gem - I cross town to have a drink at this joint. Excellent mixologists bring you near perfect drinks - they even have fresh chantilly cream in the bar, for goodness sakes. Excellent after work, before going out, before dinner, after dinner, whenever. Renovated a few years back, this jewel will be an SF landmark for ever.
TN Rocks!!!. A real old-time San Francisco gem that has been updated to serve today's San Franciscan! Mark has done a great job. The only draw-back is the parking but that has to do with the area and not the bar. Thanks for re-making Tony Niks!!!
Wonderful and fun bar.
I love going to visit at Tony Nik's! Mark, the owner is a life long friend and great host! Victoria is a very entertaining bartender. As bars go this is my favorite. The atmosphere is clean and the people are professional and love to party. Good things always happen here!
Ugh. I didn't really enjoy my time here. I felt that it was just another cookie cutter experience
10. The atmosphere was great. The bar is clean and it's easy to get too.
GREAT Cocktail Lounge. This is a great bar. It is not trying to be anything it is not....just a GREAT place for a cocktail, meeting friends, etc...
