  • Olive
    743 Larkin St, San Francisco, CA 94109 (Map)
    (415) 776-9814

In the now-fashionable-yet-still-sketchy Loin locale, Olive was one of the first swanky cocktail bars to brave the neighborhood. Though further gentrification has brought brighter, shinier bars to the area, Olive is still going strong with its short but solid drink list and choice small plates including calamari with chipotle aioli and pizzas to soak up that second or third martini with goat cheese-stuffed olives. Acquired in January 2007 by the fellows who own Rickshaw Stop, Olive maintains a comfortable vibe and a rotating art collection.
