When I first moved to San Francisco, I noticed this little place kitty corner from my apartment called the Hyde Out. I thought it looked so cozy and appealing. It is a two story bar, with the first story consisting of a bar with some stools and a few tables scattered around. The second floor is just tables, with windows going around the whole room. The whole place is tiny, and its a great place to go if you live in the neighborhood and you're looking for an intimate place to have a good chat with a friend, or enjoy a book. Think coffeehouse, but with stiffer drinks.
