Parking: Finding a meter on Haight can be hit-or-miss, but there's also a pay lot at Kezar Stadium (on Stanyan, south of Haight Street).
What to Drink: Enjoy tap beers made down the street at Magnolia or a Rob Roy and other classic cocktails.
An atmosphere of gritty, bluesy cool pervades this small but sophisticated bar and small-plates restaurant. Hard-working bartenders generate cocktails with names like the Jack Rose, Blood and Sand and a turn-of-the-century rye whiskeyâ€¦
The Alembic is one of those bars where the drinks take time to make, but they're also hands-down the best in the hood, perhaps in the city.
