OPENED IN 2015
The Connecticut Yankee is the latest addition to the Pour Guys’ list of classic San Francisco bars. The Yankee was built virtually by hand by the Salvotti family in 1907, and has been a local institution for everyone-from our ditch diggers to the city mayor-ever since.
The place is steeped in rich and colorful history. From housing a bootleg operation and speakeasy during Prohibition, to serving as a favorite spot for local artists and the former art director of Rolling Stone magazine in the 70s, the Yankee is truly a San Francisco gem.
The Pour Guys took over in 2015, with a commitment to maintaining the bar’s Boston roots and old school quirk while integrating calculated changes typical of the team, such as a revamped food program. The Connecticut Yankee is sure to remain a favorite for locals, while becoming a go-to for new visitors seeking great food and an authentic San Francisco experience.
