Spotted SF / Financial District / Taverna Aventine


A great spot to meet up with friends and colleagues—especially for weekday happy hours which last from 3:00-7:00. It gets crowded quickly, so arrive early if you can. On particular holidays, like St. Patty’s and Bastille Day, they host some seriously popular events with huge crowds pouring into their alley. But the thing I love most about this place (besides their gorgeous wallpaper): the POPCORN. They have a good beer and wine list, but those insanely large bowls of fluffy goodness are addictive (and cheap!)
