1525 Mission St. @ 11th



The bar that is now Forgery has been part of the historical fabric of San Francisco for many years, with past lives as a printing press and a glass blowing studio. Now it reigns as one of San Francisco’s best new cocktail bars lead by partner Jacques Bezuidenhout. The 2,000 square foot space showcases a clean aesthetic with an open layout featuring floor­-to­-ceiling windows flanked by exposed brick and natural wood ­located in San Francisco’s up­-and-­coming mid­-Market corridor.
