Cocktail geeks already know about Wilson & Wilson and the Hideout at Dalva, but now Eater brings word of North Beach’s answer to the bar-within-a-bar trend: The Hancock Room at Sip Bar & Lounge (787 Broadway at Powell). The owner decided to convert the former dance floor and private party room into an upscale cocktail lounge, because even the bros of the North Beach like a well-mixed Last Word these days. Well, some of them. (See the full, historically themed classic cocktail list here.) The Hancock Room opens on Friday, and will be accessible through Sip on the weekends. Sunday through Thursday they’ll be reservation-only. Anyhow, the gilt frames and old-Americana theme remind us of the recently opened Big in the TenderNob, but maybe that’s just a trend in itself.
