Description

Inspired by the taverns of the ancient Roman neighborhood it was named for, Aventine is also built from San Francisco history—a 150 year-old seawall, which marks the site of the infamous Barbary Coast, is part of its foundation. Modern twists on classic SF cocktails like the Pisco Brut Punch and the Driftwood flow from the main bar, which is framed by brick walls, large windows and artifacts dating back to Jackson Square’s more infamous times. Downstairs in the parlor, oriental carpet, leather armchairs, and a luxurious dark wood bar juxtapose with the saltwater stained wall and open rafters for a masculine lounge that feels almost private—which is an option for members who reserve on of Aventine’s handcrafted liquor lockers. But that’s not to say Aventine wants to be exclusive: the owners’ come-one, come-all policy means the place occasionally erupts into the alley for an impromptu block party. Created out of pride in its history, Taverna Aventine is a place to eat, drink and socialize for the generation writing the city’s history today—and having a hell of a time doing it.

Visiting from San Diego and wanted a place to get a drink away from the Pier 39 crowd. Great atmosphere, good drinks and nice happy hour prices. Came in on Friday around 3:45 and place was full and lively,with good music. GooglePlace - July 2017

Great happy hour and one of the only ones in the financial district that goes past 6pm. $8 glasses of good wine and lots of small bite options. Cheese board is not on happy hour menu but is substantial and delicious! GooglePlace - July 2017

Absinthe and mezcal options were great! Food was delish! Lasagne with fresh pasta and meatballs just melted in the mouth. Not crowded, I loved all the couch options and staff was very attentive. Foursquare - June 2017
