Bix Restaurant

About BIX

BIX’s elegant, two-story interior is distinguished by a graceful mahogany bar, fluted columns with ornate capitals, stunning original art, plush banquettes, cozy booths, starched linens, glittering glasses and polished flatware.

Through the years, BIX has been featured in movies, magazines, books and commercials as the quintessential San Francisco restaurant.The ambiance is pure 1930s and ’40s — tasteful art moderne reminiscent of the glory days of Cunard and French Line ships. Fashionable and glamorous are the hallmarks. Trendy is simply not a part of the BIX culture.
