Zam Zam

Why is it that in all the years I've been going to this bar, I never noticed the Aub in its name? What does this mean? The town in Bavaria?

Used to visit Aub Zam Zam often when I lived in SF in the 90s. This place is legendary, mostly because of its late owner, Bruno, who was known as the "Martini Nazi" for his gruff ways with customers. If you didn't order right (no frou frou drinks), hesitated while ordering, weren't dressed nice enough, he would kick you out. It truly was thrilling to see if you could actually finish a martini without getting shown the door. -- David

I've heard those stories. It's much friendlier now, but what the heck is Aub?
