D&D Bar Rating | Churchill

Henry and I strolled around the Castro District the other day and ended up at the new bar Churchill. Henry could not stop raving about this drink called a Red Hook which is basically like a Manhattan but slightly sweeter thanks to the tasty addition of maple syrup. It's definitely easier to throw back - not that we were chugging them - but a Manhattan can take me a solid hour to finish depending on the bar/bartender.

We went during the afternoon on a weekday so the crowd was kind of odd and not the typical Castro scene - mostly made up of young professional types that had just gotten off work - but that won't stop me from going back. The bartenders are friendly and flirty but not annoying (they even took the time to ask about Design & Dishes after hearing us talk about my recent Pear Cosmopolitan Jelly Shots) and most importantly they make real drinks that are real good! There is a chance I'll be heading to Churchill after work tonight for another round of Red Hooks.
