Off The Menu: Rx’s Elixir Cocktails Are Just What The Doctor Ordered


From a “Peanut Gallery” to their classic Rx, this Geary boulevard watering hole’s menu is as cheeky as their ingredients.

Stumbling upon this dark oasis on Geary was a surprise and a benefit for us, cocktails with prescription themes served in a handsome, wood-decked tavern space with lounge areas. We couldn’t get enough. Everything from stimulants, to stress relievers, to mood stabilizers and more — Rx is the doctor we’d see WAY more often.

Most notable drinks that they serve are their “Bartell,” a Cynar Amaro, Rye Whiskey, Sweet Vermouth, St. George NoLa Coffee brew that will keep you bouncing off the walls. Though if you’re not in the mood to be the life of the party, we suggest the “Dante’s,” a Fernet, Gin, Genepy, Agave Nectar, Orange Bitters drink that’ll have you feeling the vibes for sure.

Great for a after work chill or a quiet editor’s get together, we recommend Rx as your Friday night highlight.
