A few words to the host gets you escorted downstairs through a secret door. The basement speakeasy is accessed through a hidden bookshelf (or via private side entrance), and features a cool "underground" atmosphere filled with unique decor, games, music, and a private bar with direct access to the outdoor patio.

Not only is Barbarossa Lounge a chic, interesting place to kick back as a group (it's one of the oldest buildings in SF and survived the 1906 earthquake!) but its rotating menu of specialty cocktails are reason alone to book your next team happy hour here.

El Techo is known for its street food, fabulous cocktails, and sweeping rooftop views from its location in the Mission. Book a happy hour for 20 or more, and don't worry about unpredictable SF weather — a retractable roof cover and heat lamps ensure it'll be enjoyable no matter what!
