German beer hall that has been serving for 125 years. Menu reflects tradition rather than the new. Some good beers

I stumbled across this place during my recent trip to SF. It’s a cool setting, you forget you’re in SF and it feels like you could be in a European beer hall. Good range of beer, just pricey. Worth stopping at for one.

Had a Reuben sandwich at the bar and it was very good, if a little pricey (it’s SF). I got the Cole slaw on the side instead of in the sandwich. Loved the slaw because I love horseradish, and it had just the right amount...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
