rainBay seniors feeling cheated on having missed the illegal excitements of Prohibition may want to try the Noir Lounge in Hayes Valley. It’s a cross between a reasonable facsimile of a speakeasy and a dark, comfy men’s club. There are two bars, a small plates menu and, enticingly, a screening room which they show old films. This Sunday it will be the diametric opposite of a film noir, the happy, drought-resistant “Singing in The Rain”. The bartender will be matching the show with an antiquarian cocktail of Brooklyn Gin, Gran Classico, honey, lime and mint. Call for times.
