Butter makes trailer parks sexy! Whether it's the $2 jello shots, the quirky-named cocktails, the bumpin' beats, or the ladies dancing on the bartops, you're bound to have a sloshing good time. For those looking to flex their vocal scales and arpeggios, Sunday is karaoke night. Be sure to bring cash!
$2 Jello Shots… um hi! – Butter is a wonderful hole-in-the-wall bar that you probably wouldn’t feel compelled to go in if you were just walking by, however, I suggest a visit. It’s always full of people ready for a good time, there’s great music and $2 Jello Shots. While the rest of their drinks aren’t much of a bargain, they are no more expensive than any other bar in San Francisco and with the $2 Jello shots you’re sure to drink less of the other drinks (if not, you’ll regret it the next morning). Also for those of you that tend to get the drunken munchies, Butter also has a small snack bar that serves pretty much deep-fried anything, from twinkies to macaroni & cheese.
Fun Spot! – Great, non-pretentious place to have a drink, dance and enjoy the DJ! Check it out! This place is designed to look like a trailer, I love it. It reminds me of a bar that I used to love in NYC.
If only it was busier – I went on a friday night after wish. i loved everything about it except the lack of people! if only it had more of a following these days.
interesting spot – I've only been here twice but had fun each time. It's a very unique place with a trailer trash vibe. Very funny drink specials and snacks. Great loud music, sometimes a band is around or a live guitar player jumps up on the bar to rock out. Never too crowded. Will definitely be returning, got a nice laidback feel to it.
fun Music, Cool drinks – fun place to go when your hanging out in the Mission. Cant go to many bars in town and get a 22 in a Brown Bag. Then there is the upstairs that is like a Frat house with Video games and big rooms. 2 Thumbs up and i will probably go back again.
Too funny... – This place is definitely unique. I've been here a couple of times. Love the music, and the drinks are pretty good. They mix two of my favorite ingredients together: tang and vodka = tangini!! You have to have one. The bartenders are pretty nice, hey when I came up to order drinks they even gave me a lollipop and a wife-beater t that said "butter" on it. I had to ask for another one since my friend had tried to get one every time she had gone before.
The music is fun, not that there is really any room to dance, the people are fun, and it is an eclectic crowd. Drinks are good, and pretty moderately priced so what else???
A definite must do...at least once that is.
A SoMa club serving TV dinners and cocktails spiked with strawberry soda. – In Short
At this self-described "white-trash diner," acid jazz and house music often waft through the speakers as Pabst Blue Ribbon flows on tap. The throwback decor includes spacey lighting, lava lamp-like projections and black-velvet Elvis art. An aluminum trailer sticking out of one wall serves as the kitchen, offering microwavable SpaghettiOs and Twinkies.
Breath of Fresh Air – Butter is certainly not the place for everyone. If you are the sort that needs overpriced drinks and the vacant stares of "pretty" people to validate your existence, stay in the Marina! If you like great music, stiff drinks, and tater tots go to Butter. The bartenders are great and the atmosphere is unique. They serve Hi-Life quarts in paper bags and jello shots! Heaven! The music can be a little loud but after a few cocktails it doesn't seem to matter. Butter rules and has been taking care of me for years!
No Good – The city search write up on this place is very old. The hey day of this place must have been during the dot com. There was nobody in this place besides our group, the bar tender and the creepy guy drinking by himself at the bar. We went for the Wednesday night drag show. Upon arriving we learned this event has not been happening for over a year. The jello shots are now $2. This place is lame. I would never go back!
good fun bar – really fun dancing spot- great drinks-better food (you have to love the kisch)
it's now a favorite wednesday night place to go-great dj
