Mr. Tipple's Recording Studio
Mr. Tipple’s is a craft cocktail bar featuring live jazz.
Reservations have a 90min time limit from reservation time.
There is a $20/guest min for table service
Mr. Tipple’s heralds back to a 1950s NYC basement. Cozy. Dark. Boozy. The intimate setting features local jazz artists up close and personal. It’s a joint where you come as you are, hear great music, tap your toes, and sip a properly chilled cocktail.
My name is Mr. Tipple. Just a simple and laughable bloke hailing from London. I run a recording studio. My friends joke that you’ll oft find me spinning cocktails, not reeling tape. After a few too many, I usually just sit back and enjoy the music, having forgotten to hit record. Regardless, the band is always jiving, the whiskey is always cold, and we’re having a smashing good time.

this was just such an incredible night out! the band was great, so much energy, we loved the maple miso old fashioned, and the dumplings were to die for. we only wish you had more of the vegetarian ones, cuz one of our party is veggie only, so she had to just eat cucumber salad and gin all night. we're definitely coming back though! love it love it love it ❤️❤️❤️
The music is great, the cocktails and food tasty, and the staff very fun and wonderful.
Great experience, great music, great food. Great service ! Special thanks to the hostess, who was able to move things around so I could keep my table when I came back!
Great experience! It's pretty loud near the front, so not great for constant conversation, but amazing jazz and great experience.
Visiting from out of town this was an amazing time to celebrate my wife’s bday! Great Music, Great People and Great Vibes
Great place. The server forgot the appetizer, but the other server was gracious and offered a refund. Otherwise, everything else was great.
Awesome music and ambiance
Spending the evening there was sheet happiness. The music was great, the food was great while unassuming. The service courteous and efficient. Size and ambiance of the venue is perfect for a jazz club. Victuals where original, tasty, sometimes whimsical.
Wonderful music venue with stylish vibe and organized very well to accommodate dining and cocktails. Delicious food, too.
It is a well maintained jazz club. We arrived at 5:30 p.m. We listen to Stephanie Woodford band (started playing at 6 p.m.), which was good. If you are at a table, you can only use it for 90 minutes. Afterward you can move to the bar. We left at 7 p.m. Unfortunately we did not know that a different band was playing at 8 p.m., otherwise we would have stayed longer. The restrooms are impeccable.
Great music, wonderful cocktails, cool jazz. What’s not to like?
Wonderful staff, outstanding cocktails, great dim sum. Always great live music.
Excellent music, good drinks, and food surprisingly good. Professional service.
Have been there before and we will return.
This is such a cool spot - so nice to have access to live music and good food!
Nice venue, good band, and great service! The food and drinks were good as well.
Friday night dinner and jazz. Loved it. Will be back next SF trip.
Simply one of the best cocktail lounge experiences in the city.
FANTASTIC evening! Great music with the Cosmo Alleycats, fantastic drinks, and the Dim Sum was DELICIOUS! Can't wait to go back!
Excellent venue for jazz in San Francisco. Great service, ambiance, and craft cocktails. Josh Jones quintet was amazing.
Sweet jazz club. Loved the bands and the vibe and the people who worked there were great.
We had the space in the back all to ourselves but gets really hot there. They should put a fan or something for people in that corner
Warm atmosphere, friendly & accommodating staff. Choice of music musicians & performer was outstanding. Definitely a wonderful place to enjoy atmosphere, food & music. Thank you for be
being such a wonderful venue for live music.
Great place to listen some cool jazz music with good drinks. Food is ok.
Mr. Tipple's Recording Studio's jazz plus dim sum was fantastic. We enjoyed the jazz ensemble and the delightful dim sum. It was a new and different dining experience for our group of 15. Our group was comprised of folks from mid-twenties to seventy and all enjoyed the atmosphere, the music and the food. I will definitely enjoy an evening at Mr. Tipple's the next time I am in San Francisco.
Super great cool venue for comfortable listening to great jazz. Love the vibe and so did my guests. We will return soon. Thanks to all your staff!
The only bad thing I can say is that they were out of shirts in my size. Kev choice was amazing great drinks and fantastic ambience. Will be back next time I’m in the city.
Great music! … Great service! and Great bartenders!!!
Went there after the Symphony and caught the tail end of the Jazz performance. Excellent atmosphere, craft cocktails but was disappointed that there was nothing to eat after 9:30, not even bar bites. I would have given it 5 stars if they had some food options until the bar closes.
Great jazz music. Great spot.
Mr Tipple came by our table and let me tell you - it was a delight!
It wasn’t worth paying extra money To get in, I had my brother and sis in law from out of town, I wanted them to have an unique experience. Our tables were away from the stage there was nothing “VIP” about it, while other people were just walking in sitting at the stage
So happy they are reopen!
Great drinks and good music
Great service, food, drinks & most of all the music! Highly recommended!
What a gem! An intimate jazz club with good food and drinks to boot. The dim sum appetizers from Black Cat made a surprisingly filling dinner, and the mixed drinks were inventive and flavorful. The band that night, Macy Blackman and the Mighty Tunes, played wonderfully. The space is intimate and cozy, and the music volume was perfect. What a pleasure hearing live music again!
Enjoy the jazz performer, and the food was great from FatCat!!! It was as pleasant surprise for a visit time visitor to San Francisco.
Great ambiance and decor. Darkly lit, small candlelight tables create a sophisticated setting seldom found these days. Very cordial, attentive service. Only wished the band, Cosmo Alleycats, had played more classics and less of their own compositions.
Mr. Tipple's is one of my favorite spots in San Francisco. The music is always good, the staff is excellent, the ambiance is excellent.
Enjoyed our time very much. Such a pleasure to hear live jazz again.
This place is so sublime! 100% fabulous. Didn’t have food only drinks so that’s why the food is ranked only good as it wouldn’t let me post without ranking the food. The atmosphere is on point. The music amazing ! Love love love this place!
