Avoid all the time – Worst Irish bar in SF. Probably hailed by publications about SF for tourists, but for locals, medicore at best. You are better off to go to Irish Bank or other central locations. Poor service and attitude to boot.
A Tenderloin sports bar where televised games take a backseat to the scene. – In Short
Aside from a fish tank at the door, the look here is bare-bones minimalism. The warehouse-like space is taken up by rows of black aluminum tables and chairs and a couple of pool tables. Two TVs airing sports programming reside above the bar, but the wall-mounted Internet jukebox pumping out high-volume hits garners more attention from the mostly male, 30-something crowd.
Mr. Wickles anyone? – This bar reminded me why I love San Francisco. I went with my boyfriend Kim Chee and took part in a four hour game of Mech Warrior. It was great. The noise was right, no lines, and lots of booze. Wonderful!
So much fun... – So many celebs and drag queens I almost fainted. So much fun and everyone treats great. I met Bob Harris from NBC, Courteny Love, Mike Gallant, and Virgil Gann. So much fun. Everyone should go.
Fabulous Bar – I went on Drag Night dressed as Liza and let me tell you, the place was a hoot. My partner Fred and I danced the night away and then relaxed with a game of pool. Kind bartenders and a great accepting atmosphere.
Great Crowd – From Lars Ulrich to Bob Harris, you'll never know who you'll meet in this bar. The bartenders are great and it's full of fun bar activities. A great place for a date or for eyeing adult dancers like Lou Harris on break. Everyone should check this one out.
Expensive, but nice. – Overpriced yuppie hangout, but also a hangout for pro wrestlers (Kim Chee, John Bickle, and Vance Wolgamott), musicians (Lars Ulrich, Virgil Gann), and strippers (Mari Lou Harris, Vhonda). I had a blast. I spent every cent and so will you, but a good time was had by all.
