This is one of my favourite bars in the Word. Great ambiance, good selection of cocktails, and a lively weekend crowd. Look out for the pictures on the wall, who is watching who??

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
