A truly classic San Francisco bar. Mai Tais, oh yeah.
You've got 'em lined up like dim sum on a Sunday: hot dates with the good-looking citizens of our fair city. Once dinner's over and done, though, where to go and make out? The weather usually sucks, so forays to Coit Tower (heh heh) or a darkened beach are pretty much out. That's when you swing over to a deserted after-hours hood like Chinatown and slip into a bar like Li Po, where the old men playing dice at the front bar really don't give a damn whether you're drinking gin and tonics, dancing to Prince tunes or full-on making out in one of the sleek red booths in the back room. Our verdict? Li Po is makeout central, and if you haven't already taken (or been taken by) one of your honeys, you'll love the instant street cred you'll get as soon as your date sees the cavernous, rustic entrance and old-school wraparound bar. - Tracie Broom
