With the new Apple flagship store starting to take shape in Union Square, it’s easy to see how ubiquitous technology has become in San Francisco and beyond. We love our smartphones and computers for their sharing, finding and calculating abilities, but sometimes we forget that this comes at a cost. Recent studies have indicated that consuming large amounts of artificial blue light emitted by the screens of electronic devices can have negative effects on us.
If you know San Francisco, you know that August is just the beginning of our real summer, which often stretches through October, so we thought it would be a perfect time to introduce you to some refreshing summer sippers from some of our top cocktail bars. Check out these 5 fantastic concoctions from some of the city’s top bar talent, and come visit us for happy hour this week!

My favorite part about Union Square is how its rich history has a way of popping up when you least expect it. Somehow, things from so long ago can still find a way to surprise you. These surprises can come in the form of a passing cable car, and the spirited bell ringing style of the operator jolting me out of a daydream as I walk down Geary St. Other times it can come from some obscure tidbit of San Francisco trivia overheard from a passing tour guide who just happens to be dressed up as Emperor Norton. But the one thing I’ve found is that no matter how much time I spend actively searching them out, the best stories seem to always find me.
