Classic Cocktails in the FiDi
Taverna Aventine
Financial District

At Aventine, 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.

Pro Tip

Aventine's happy hour (voted best in SF by San Francisco Magazine) runs from 3-7pm on weekdays.


Inspired by the taverns of the ancient Roman neighborhood that it was named for, Taverna Aventine is literally built from San Francisco history--a 150 year-old seawall, which marks the site of the infamous Barbary Coast, is part of its foundation.

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 one of Aventine’s handcrafted liquor lockers (to stash their own liquor and cigars). But Aventine's "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.
