Dive bars or neighborhood bars in San Francisco are one of the best ways to get a vibe for a neighborhood. Today I am with Napa friends in Dogpatch and popped into a random bar looking for a unique experience and a solid Bloody Mary. The Connecticut Yankee is a true historic bar, originally built in 1907. The history, snarky signs and vibe all point to that. Have to say we truly enjoyed our time here and didn’t get kicked out because we weren’t Yankee fans.
The drinks, food, and service was on point and the setting was perfect for this experience. We ate the buffalo chicken wings and the polenta. I love polenta. The polenta was cooked and seasoned to perfection. Ordering again next time I go! Special thanks to mixologist (featured) Scott Brody for humoring us and sharing how they make their delicious Irish coffee.
