Western Addition Specialty
The Social Study
1795 Geary Blvd., Western Addition
Stop by The Social Study during the day, and you might think the space had been specifically engineered for working and studying—a blue, tufted leather wall along the side of the room is outfitted with individualized study stations, each chair/table combination banked by fold-down shelves on either side. At night, the shelves turn into chairs at bar-height tables, and the space becomes one of the area's best cocktail lounges, with a great drink menu and frequent guest DJs.
