222 Club

A fave little Tenderloin haunt, the ~222 CLUB~, just landed their liquor license (they scored it from the now-closed Sno-Drift Lounge). Which rocks, because “the grotto” (as me and my pals like to call the triple-deuce) was already a choice little spot, even though they only had wine and beer, and my favorite, bubbly. Not only is the staff mighty kind, they also crank out some fab little eats behind the bar, like a scrumptious pear and blue cheese thin-crust pizza. Bar pizza, genius. They’re actually expanding their menu to include some salads, salumi plates, and now five kinds of pizza. Yeah, it’s on a sketchy street, but once you’re inside the grotto you’ll be glad you came.
