If there’s any trusted team in this city when it comes to creating great bars and lounges, it’s the one behind Bourbon & Branch and Rickhouse. The good news is, in August the crew added Local Edition to its lineup, in the form of a newspaper-themed bar that was once the publishing floor of The Examiner. Although it’s located smack in the middle of FiDi on Market Street, the entrance is small and unassuming but opens up to a super-spacious interior, which creates a hidden, museum-like feel.
Local Edition, 691 Market Street (between Geary and Kearny streets); 415-795-1375.
