Spot for cocktails near Incanto

We are going to Incanto with some friends. Some of us like to start of the evening with a cocktail. I think Incanto only serves wine, beer, and so on. Any good spots close by to find something else? BTW, I'm really looking forward to trying Incanto after reading the posts here.

  1. near-ish. bliss bar. 24th and noe.

    1. Pescheria has a full bar. It's on the same side of Church street, about four blocks down from Incanto, toward 30th. The bar only has about six seats, and it's part of the dining room. So it is definitely not a bar vibe.

      If you are coming from the Mission side of the city, there are many options on Mission near Valencia, including The Argus and The Odeon. Both are probably less than a ten minute walk and have a neighborhood bar feel.

      1. It's a terrible area for drinks. I like the Argus, but the drinks are awful. Odeon is now the Knockout and is a particularly hellish spot unless you're high.

        El Rio would probably be my pick, but it's a pretty incongruous match for the formal mood of Incanto. Save your palate for Incanto's wine list.

        1. bliss bar on 24th is your best bet. Unfortunately, it's a bit of a hike, but it's definitely a cool, hip, casual lounge with good drinks.

            Thanks everybody. I think we'll go for Bliss and do the double parking thing--hope the parkings gods are with us!

          2. You could also go over to Guerrero and look at the Lone Palm (3394 22nd St -- Cross Street: Guerrero Street) or The Liberties (998 Guerrero Street). Not that parking's any better.
