The two bartenders were so nice and the drinks are very reasonably priced! We would return even without the Groupon!

Great relaxed atmosphere! Although it seems to be a place for all the locals to hang out I think it would make a great destination for those Haight street tourists as well. Great bartenders and great rum drinks! Marc

Bartender was not quite as friendly as I was told. My 22 year old daughter brought in a bit of food from Whole Foods across the street (she did not want to drink on an empty stomach). According to her while I was using the restroom the bartender came over to her and read her the riot act, so to speak. She seemed quite alarmed when I returned to our table. Although I wasn't there when it happened and while I understand his concern, it seemed to me that the issue could have been handled better. Otherwise, the place and drinks were just as good as I remembered them to be.

The bartender was very friendly and helpful. My partner and I had three mojitos between us, as that was the daily drink special for Tuesday. We ordered grilled fish tacos which were delivered from a taco place down the street. The tacos were excellent value at $8.50 for a pair. I would definitely come back again!

About Hobson's Choice

Beneath twin lanterns rests the entrance to a quiet punch house modeled after the classic British punch houses of the Victorian era. These are not punches of fruit or fist, but rather of rum, the chosen inebriant of Hobson's Choice. The bar stocks more than 120 varieties of this sugary spirit, including Old Grog, Myers's, and Neisson Réserve Spéciale, as well as rare and limited-quantity batches. Beneath a line of antique chandeliers dripping with sweet, sweet history, the staff fills glasses with specialty cocktails such as the Planter's Punch, a mixture of Coruba dark Jamaican rum, fresh orange juice, lemon juice, and grenadine. To chase these libations, they also serve food catered by the nearby Asqew Grill.
