5 stars for the bar

On the recommendation of Isotope owner James, my wife and I decided to head over to Sauce for a quick cocktail on the way back home after picking up some comics at his shop.
The bar is warm and inviting, and the drinks are both strong and well poured. An "el Diablo" was well made, with a distinct tequila flavor typically missing in most tequila cocktails. My wife's "Pink Pearl Necklace" (gotta love that name) was also quite good.
The cocktail highlight was the negroni - quite possibly the best I have had in the United States. Made with Nr. 209 gin, it was strong, herbal and perfectly balanced in its sweetness.
If you're looking for good cocktails in Hayes Valley, Sauce is highly recommended.
