Public House Downtown
1132 16th St., Sacramento, CA 95814
Downtown’s buzzing, crowd-pleasing casual American eatery and bar, housed inside the 1929 Firestone Tire Building, features about 60 different brews and hard ciders on tap, at least 20 of which rotate seasonally, including suds by local breweries New Glory and Fieldwork. The menu of elevated bar bites and hearty fare ranges from the signature brandy-fried chicken to soft-shell crab tacos and a giant, buttery 10-inch Bavarian pretzel that’s a must-try dish. The interior is covered with flat-screen TVs featuring sports of all stripes, but also clever design elements like artfully displayed kegs.
