Windows, Beverages for Adults
Whether you're looking to escape the roar of Lombard Street traffic or the drunken, obnoxious, white-bread goobers who make up so much of the Marina bar scene, Pierce Street's Windows is an oasis of civility amid San Francisco's yuppie ghetto. As the name implies, the place draws an older crowd. Small reading lamps line the bar, the music tends toward easy listening, and sweeping, namesake windows mark a very distinct boundary -- Banana Republic-loving youngsters on the outside, a quieter, gentler breed of drinker within. If you're looking for fast times and faux blondes with bodacious fakies, go elsewhere, but if you want good drinks, friendly bartenders, and Frank Sinatra, there's no finer place in the Marina to get your soothe on.
