good, unpretentious bars that serves "real" martini and decent tap beer selection

poem | Dec 8, 200304:40 AM     26

Hello chows,
I am visiting the Bay Area for a week and read almost all of the board and took notes. Now: I am looking for places to have a drink where
- That are not meat markets
- Where you don't have to dress up as if you are going to the Oscars party
- That do not start pouring vodka when you ask for a martini
- Do not even attempt to serve frou frou drinks with a martini suffix

Also. What are the places with the best tap beer selection?

Thanks!
