Join Presidio Social Club in bringing ‘round the welcome wagon with an international bar menu developed specifically in honor of the athletes participating in the America’s Cup races. As participating team members have flocked to the city for trails, the restaurant has become a frequent watering hole for sailors and spectators alike due to its proximity to the water. With this in mind, Presidio Social Club announced a specialty menu of favorite nautical beverages featuring the classic sailors choice: Rum!  Paired with tasty bar bites, it’s a perfect way to recover after a day on the bay. But you don’t have to come straight off the water to enjoy these special offerings. Celebrate America’s Cup with drinks like the Pitti Punch a cocktail straight from Antigua Race Week made with Mt. Gay Black Barrel Rum, sugar, and lime juice, a Bumbo, a mixture of Flor de Cana rum, nutmeg syrup, and coconut water served chilled and up, or the post-race classic Sail Reefer, a shot of Mt. Gay Rum and a Red Stripe BeerPair any of these nautically inspired cocktails with a meal from the PSC menu, or bar menu, and raise a glass to the 2013 America’s Cup.

Other specialty drink offerings include:

  • PSC Grog – Zaya Rum, lime, bitters, and beer served over ice, with a salty rim
  • Quarter Deck Cocktail – Mt. Gay Extra Old Rum, Amontillado Sherry, lime juice, and simple syrup served chilled up.
  • Black Beard – Mt. Gay Black Barrel Rum and ginger ale
  • Zaya Dark and Stormy (Donkey Punch) – Zaya Rum, ginger beer, and lime
  • Painkiller – Appleton Estate Rum, island juices and Coco Lopez, topped with a Coruba Dark Rum Float

The Presidio Social Club, tucked in San Francisco’s expansive Presidio National Park, is a perfect compilation of Northern Californian sensibilities: historical preservation, locally sourced ingredients, and a knowledgeable and approachable staff.  The structure was originally a 1903 military barracks, but after careful renovation has been converted into a playful and cozy eatery.
