Got relatives visiting and not sure which landmark spot to take them? Or a group of boozehounds ready for a night on the town? ~HARRY DENTON’S STARLIGHT ROOM~ at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel will be offering summertime cocktails for groups on their new Bottles and Bowls menu on Thursday evenings from 6pm-10pm until August 31st (it all starts Thursday June 28th). They will be pouring house-bottled and carbonated cocktails in a variety of summery combinations, including gin with housemade tonic (perfect for your WASPy aunt, right?). Each bottle is 750 ml and serves up to four sippers. If your group is larger, go for a bowl of Peach Pimm’s Punch or Sangria de Nona, which will serve up to six people.
There will also be group-friendly snacks (in, yes, bowls) like truffle popcorn and french fries. Open Tue-Sat at 6pm; “Sunday’s A Drag” brunch shows every Sunday at 12pm and 2:30pm (doors open at 11am). Sir Francis Drake Hotel, 21st floor, 450 Powell St. at Sutter, 415-395-8595.
