The Best Places for a First Date or Breakup

Love is strange

Barrel House Tavern

The Sausalito spot, just a short walk from the ferry, wins the first impression rose based on decor alone (floor-to-ceiling windows, hand-blown glass fixtures, big marble bar). Cozy up next to the fire orb (a floating, circular fireplace) and ignite the magic with a round of Unicorns (gin, Chartreuse, basil, mint, grapefruit bitters). Spectacular views make oysters extra romantic.

Barrel House Tavern, 660 Bridgeway, at Princess Street (415-729-9593 or barrelhousetavern.com).
