Best Crosstown Bar - 2007
Sometimes you might need a final final on your way home. Or maybe you live in the Sunset and you're meeting some friends to go to a Giants day game. Or you've just taken in the sights at Twin Peaks or Ocean Beach. It's time for a beer, but there's nothing to be found in the vast residential blocks west of Twin Peaks. Enter the humble Miraloma Club, nestled in the saddle between Mt. Davidson and Forest Hill, above Glen Canyon, in a little strip of shops on Portola Avenue. Old-timers rub elbows at the bar with off-duty cops while tradesmen unwind after a long day and young neighborhood guys play pool in the back. Grab a sandwich or a burger from next door, and let the fog blow in as you settle down at the bar, drink in hand, Led Zeppelin on the jukebox. Life is good.
