Leo’s Oyster Bar, San Francisco

Exotic aesthetics run riot through San Francisco oyster bar that has decadence of the golden age at heart...

Fashioned after the great cocktail and oyster bars of the golden era, Leo’s Oyster Bar is the place in San Francisco for a bout of equally-retro indulgence; with its extensive raw bar, champagne bar and an ethos we very much believe in: ‘bring back day drinking! And day into night drinking’.

Employing opulent and cosy in equal measures, the local — in San Francisco’s Financial District — features a helping of midcentury sleek combined with a heavy touch of the exotic (conceived by Big Night Design Director, Ken Fulk); from the light- and fern-filled conservatory to whimsical floral patterns, Murano blown-glass fish figurines, hints of vintage 1950s Hawaii, gilt scallop shell sconces, and bamboo-caned barstools.

The restaurant — the fourth from the Big Night Restaurant Group, and named after founders and restaurateurs Anna Weinberg and James Nicholas’s young son — enables diners to devour a wide selection of seafood and shellfish: East and West coast oysters, clams, crab legs, diver scallop, caviar … fine cocktails and champagnes on hand to swill the lot down. Oh how decadent.
