The Holidays are nearly upon us and we’re already feeling festive.   Next month will mark 10 years on this corner of the Mission.  And to celebrate, we’ve lowered our prices and refined our menus to offer a better experience for all of you!  We’re also planning a ridiculous 10 day week starting Dec 10 and ending on our anniversary Dec 18.

Details can be found on our Menus and Events pages, respectively.

Come on in and celebrate with us this holiday season!

We’ll be CLOSED ON THANKSGIVING THURSDAY, but open as usual the rest of the week.

We open at noon every day for lunch, with the Kitchen staying open until last call every night. Join us for Weekend Brunch on Saturday, Sunday and Holidays from noon to 4pm.


The Kettle

Welcome to the Monk’s Kettle!

The neighborhood tavern.  At once a restaurant, a bar, a gathering place.  The Monks Kettle is all of these, all the time, to all comers, as any tavern should be.  A place where all are welcome, where the mission is simply to create a place people want to be.

Opening its doors in December 2007 at the forefront of the craft beer boom, The Monk’s Kettle has since become an industry institution: recognized as one of SF’s 23 Essential Bars by, and as the Best Beer Bar in California by Thrillist in 2016 and 2017.

More than anything, Monk’s Kettle is a neighborhood tavern in San Francisco’s Mission District offering upscale pub fare and a broad and balanced craft beer list.

Our Kitchen provides a ‘from scratch’, seasonally driven menu.  Our world-renowned beer list offers 28 drafts, 1 cask engine and around 150 in the bottle (including vintage selections from the cellar) in a wide range of styles, and specializing in local and Belgian brews.

And our friendly and knowledgeable staff will happily guide you through the tavern’s extensive beer and food offerings.
