Shake 558: Fifties Fridays

October 15, 2011

The Drinking Buddy, San Francisco (US), July 2011

It's like a little enticing island

Everyone knows that I never want to go far for a tipple on a Friday night (especially my drinking buddy); after an exhausting week, attempting to venture halfway across town isn’t appealing. And why venture out when the local offerings just keep getting better? Hinky Dinks is the cute little American retro-styled bar that’s just opened its doors. When you seat yourself on a cosy little banquette and you’re welcomed with a retro red and white striped cup of tasty popcorn, you know it’s going to be a good night! The black and white tiles, the formica benchtops, piano stools and the green walls are just so refreshing compared to the usual dark, sleek look everyone is going for. To sweeten the deal even more, they’re serving some refined cocktails and when you discover that the talent behind the bar are ex-Longrain, no one is surprised.

My local scene has just become a little more hip!
