Churchill serves up straightforward, world-class cocktails in a space that recalls WWII-era bars and canteens. If a well-traveled diplomat needed a stiff drink during his stopover in San Francisco during the 1940s, we like to think this would be his favorite watering hole. Churchill mixed vintage fixtures, raw and reclaimed materials with modern accents to create an atmosphere of rugged, unpretentious sophistication: The bar is handcrafted from a single slab of walnut and, no, they don’t expect you to be gentle with it.
The most important feature of the bar is the drinks (as it should be). Churchill uses simple, yet high-quality ingredients to craft cocktails that are delicious and to the point. Lining the well-stocked shelves, you’ll also find single-barrel whiskeys and small batch spirits, and on tap, local artisan beers and a few imports. Should you find yourself swept away by WWII nostalgia, they're also happy to serve you up a whiskey and soda, the favorite drink of a certain former statesman.
