Lovers of the lounge lifestyle need no longer brave the hipster crowds to enjoy an elegantly understated bar experience. Witness RoHan Lounge, an Inner Richmond haunt which proves that upscale digs and a pretentious attitude can be mutually exclusive things. RoHan opened its doors in May 2001 and remains San Francisco's only bar to specialize in cocktails made with soju, a traditional Korean liquor.
Awash in red and gold, the interior's simple lines and streamlined look whisper decadence. A velvet couch slinks along a bamboo-covered wall, and a luminous red bar, black and white photographs, Asian accents and hushed lighting contribute to RoHan's quietly sophisticated atmosphere. - Jen Robbins
