SF alternative to Single Barrel, San Jose

Pei | Apr 13, 2011 06:14 PM

A friend has been rhapsodizing about Single Barrel, a speakeasy in San Jose. The Blood and Sand, especially, has him singing their praises all the d---ned time. But I'm not hauling myself down to SJ for a bar. I'm making him come into SF instead. :)

What bar in the city most closely approximates the experience and drink quality? He is, as he says "not a cocktail drinker" but he loves the cocktails at Single Barrel. I have a feeling this is a result of a combination of atmosphere, chit chatting with the bartender, and having a selection of cocktails that are more like hard alcohol and less like a lemon drop.

I'm thinking Bourbon and Branch (or maybe The Wilson, which I haven't visited yet). Or 441 Jones?
