#2092 - Murio's Trophy Room, San Francisco - 3/2/2013

Murio's was established in 1959 by Olympian and tennis champion John Murio. This was his second bar, after the Hawaiian Village just a few doors up the road (now the Cha Cha Cha). It was very divey, but new owners Edward Sargent and Roger Howell opened a highly remodeled version at the beginning of 2012, in a fashion that one site calls "darker and masculine," but which strikes me as something like a pimp's idea of classy. Thankfully, the retained the great sign out front and also the ancient trophies,  the bartenders are cool and funny, and it's still pleasant in a way that good dive bars are pleasant
