The Kettle

Welcome to Monk’s Kettle SF!

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 SF 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.
