It’s all about the midcentury glam at Tony Nik’s, a well-appointed North Beach lounge that would make the Rat Pack feel right at home. The bar opened in 1933, immediately after Prohibition was repealed, and has since excelled at serving classic cocktails with a decided sense of style. The dimly lit bar is flanked by a glass checkerboard with a sultry lounge tucked in the back. Ensconce yourself in one of the champagne-colored banquettes, draw the curtain and indulge in a little time travel.
