Elixir was established in 1858 and continues to stand as one of San Francisco’s oldest saloons. This historic western dive bar on the corner of 16th Street and Guerrero is home to rustic dark wood decor, a late night happy hour, hundreds of whiskies and, yes, that esteemed trivia night. Better known as Elixir Quiz, this Tuesday night gathering is led by comedian hosts delivering questions made by bartender Ed Katzka. Speaking of competitions, Elixir won the 2018 Cocktail of the Year nod at the World Spirits Competition for the Pamplemousse au Poivre.
