Get in touch with your inner sailor over a cold beer (or a bracing glass of Pisco Punch) at The Old Ship Saloon, a bar that sits above the final resting place of the Arkansas, a three-masted ship that arrived in San Francisco in 1849. The ship’s hull was an actual bar for a brief period (it was dismantled in 1859), but the space still serves as a bustling neighborhood bar replete with refurbished wood and exposed brick. A full menu of bar food classics (plus, breakfast service) gives you plenty of reasons, beyond booze, to stop by. Expect a busy lunchtime crowd from Financial District offices and nearby North Beach, and plenty of San Francisco spirit during sporting events.
