stylish bar/lounge

A friend is coming to visit from LA next weekend. She lives in Hollywood and gets plenty of time in the trendy clubs there, so doesn't need to replicate that experience here. I'd like to take her to a nice bar or lounge in San Francisco, preferably downtown or the Mission. Ideally this would be a place with some style but not super-trendy with VIP bottle service or any of that kind of "ultra" scene. I tend more towards ordinary bars so I'm not sure what the "nice" places are. Maybe one of the speakeasy-style places? I don't know.

This will be on a Saturday night and we'd be more into hanging out with a cocktail rather than dancing.

Any ideas?
