Hayes Valley

Absinthe

398 Hayes St.
San Francisco, CA, 94102, United States
TEL: (415) 551-1590

Located within walking distance of the San Francisco War Memorial & Performing Arts Center, this Hayes Valley brasserie is ideal for pre-show French fare and inventive absinthe-based cocktails. The popular bar area contains backlit bottles and lanterns shaped like miniature hot air balloons, while the dining room has a Parisian-inspired design with tile floors, brass rails, and black banquettes. Executive chef Adam Keough changes the menu monthly, but enduring favorites include the French onion soup and the coq au vin: red Burgundy—braised chicken with bacon and roasted crimini mushrooms. The chocolate pot de crème is also a must.

Insider Tip:

If you prefer to bring your own wine, purchase a bottle at Arlequin Wine Merchant (right next door) and pay only half of the corkage fee.
