Wow, we are blushing right now! Thanks to you Pops Bar was voted Best Bloody Mary, Best Cocktail & Best Quiz Night in SF Weekly’s Best of San Francisco 2018. Not to mention our rockstar bartender and cocktail curator Shirley Brooks was voted Best Established Bartender.  The cornerstone of our brunch mob, Pops Bacon Bloody Mary recipe was created by Happy Jack Allen.  Our multi talented bartender Deb Leal took this beauty of a photo in honor of our win. “Bloody Mary inspired by Veteranas y Rucas– a throwback collection to the 90′s Chicana mall glam shots.” – Deb.
