My friends Vivek, Kelly, and I wanted to go to a hookah bar. Or as Vivek calls it shisha. We decided to try Morac Restaurant & Lounge in the Mission District of San Francisco. When we arrived the restaurant side with the dance floor was booked for a private party. That left the lounge crowded and busy...but in a good way. We were lucky enough to get a table toward the front by the door. Normally, I don't like sitting close to the door, but this table gave us the best spot to people watch. We had an awesome and attentive waitress named Monica. She gave me an honest and direct answer when I asked her which drink from the cocktail menu she liked...the Que and the gimlet. I ordered the gimlet, Kelly ordered the Que, and Vivek ordered a blueberry infused cocktail which I don't remember the name. We agreed to try the soft apricot for the hookah. When the drinks arrived we took a taste of each other's drinks and were extremely happy with our choices. The Que was so good that I downed my drink just so that I could order one for myself. The soft apricot was the perfect choice...very subtle and smooth. This was as close to perfect a night could be...awesome company, great conversation, beautiful people, excellent service and delicious drinks.
If you're looking to chill out with friends in a swank and intimate environment with great service and lots of people watching I definitely recommend Morac Restaurant & Lounge.
