Intimate Downtown San Francisco Bars

I am always looking for places in downtown SF to have intimate creative conversations, so I've been trying to put together a list of the most interesting, new, dark, and intimate SF bars. We don't have the same kind of stuff as NYC and London. I wish we did. But these are a good start sourced from various of my best sources in no particular order.
  1. House of Shields
  2. Comstock Saloon
  3. Per Diem
  4. Woodbury
  5. Dirty Habit
  6. Atlas Tap Room
  7. Liholiho Yacht Club
  8. Whiskey Thieves
  9. Schroeder's
  10. Benjamin Cooper
