Drink Here Now: 5 Places to Sip This Week


1) Weekly Wednesday DJ Party
If you’re planning to party at the swanky, Hollywood-esque Monroe (473 Broadway @ Kearny) on Wednesday nights, it pays to arrive early. Not only are the drinks cheaper; the music is probably better. The Battle of the Decades DJ party starts at 8 pm with music from the 80s, plus $1 cocktails and premium beers. At 9 pm, the 90s music kicks in, and drink prices double to $2. Music from the 00s starts at 10 pm, with $3 drinks. From 11pm - 2am, drinks cost $4, and the music hails from the current decade. Red Pepper food truck serves $1.50 tacos all night on the heated, outdoor patio.

2) Jamaican Rum Tasting @ Elixir’s Cocktail Club

The New Napper Tandy

1. The Napper Tandy Reopens The Napper Tandy (24th and Van Ness) in the Mission has always been a friendly Irish Pub, if a bit cramped. A recent remodel opened up the space, making Wednesday night trivia (8:30 pm) more comfortable for patrons and servers alike. An upgraded sound system allows irreverently named teams to spread into the back room, while staying within earshot of the charming hostess’s lilting accent.
