    Hey, bigger isn’t always better. Yep, we all know that good things come in small packages, so we’ve rounded up a list of some of S.F.’s tiniest bars to wet your whistle. (We can’t deny that we’ve got a soft spot for a good, ol'-fashioned hole in the wall — or shall we say, watering hole-in-the-wall?)

    From intimate wine lounges to pint-sized English pubs, some of the city’s biggest gems also happen to have the smallest footprint. Whether you’re bellying up to the bar with an old friend or sipping a Manhattan on a first date, you won’t have to battle a sea of thirsty patrons at one of these cozy cantinas. Is it 5 p.m. yet?!
