    Churchill has mastered the elusive combination of a chill corner bar paired with professional bartenders who mostly manage to make that perfect cocktail without being pretentious

    Churchill is a pretty new cocktail bar with a cool vibe in Duboce Triangle (between the Castro and the Lower Haight. Located across from the Safeway parking lot, this bar offers cool lighting, a nice assortment of house cocktails.

    I probably want to like this bar more than I actually like this bar. They make good drinks (though stay away from that Hemingway one) and the beer selection is good, though it gets really crowded on some nights which makes it just unbearable. Come when it's less packed and you'll have a nice time.

    Churchill is a steam-punk nautical-themed bar that serves up beer in mason jars and a handful of cocktails. Yeah, it's a little hipster. I actually really like the decor. It's kind of dark and damp, like the bowels of a freight ship. It's a little industrial and a little upscale, if that makes any sense. The ceiling above the bar is covered with rows of thick rope, there's a pool table in back, and electric lamps all over the place.

    As for the drinks, well, I think they still have a few kinks to work out. I tried a couple of cocktails, neither of which was great. A lot of people are chomping at the bit to compare this bar to Blackbird, which is just around the corner. There's really no comparison, though, and I don't think there should be. While Blackbird serves up great artisan cocktails, Churchill's are a little uninspired and bland; the margarita I had was a pretty far cry from Mexico. I will say that I love the idea of serving beer in mason jars-- though I don't know why. It does seem, however, that because the mason jar isn't the same size as a pint glass, it's just a cutesy way for the bar to overcharge.

    I'm willing to chalk all of that up to things-that-will-be-ironed-out, though. It's fantastic to see another "nice" bar open up in the Castro, even if it is on the outskirts-- which I think lends itself to the incredibly mixed crowd it seems to have attracted: not gay, not straight, just a smart-casual mix of the Castro, Duboce Triangle, Lower Haight and Mission crowds.
