We were walking towards “The Page”, a bar that we’ve been to a bunch of times, when we randomly noticed the sign for club waziema across the street. what was this mysterious place? was it a club? was it a restaurant? what does the saxophone on the bar’s sign have to do with anything? our curiosity got the best of us, and we wandered in.
the place turned out to not be a club at all, but more of a bar/restaurant. we tried one of their specialty drinks: the bourbon decay which was Makers mixed with ginger ale and lemon. hella good. caryn got some mango drink that was really good too. the drinks were fairly cheap and pretty strong. but what really made this place cool was that the people who worked there were super nice. everyone behind the bar was way friendly and when they found out that it was our friend’s birthday, they played a happy birthday song over the speakers. everyone there genuinely seemed to want us to have a great time, even though it was 1:30 am, only half an hour before closing.
apparently during the day, they also serve Ethiopian food, but from the reviews Iâ€™ve read, I can’t imagine it being too good…
Club Waziema is at 543 Divisadero Street in San Francisco
