The bartender was not attentive at all. He was too involved with this "party of 8" and their potential tip and essentially ignored the other patrons. The music was bland and there is no longer a time when they play funny video clips . Very...More

I have a thing for happy hours and this place has an excellent one. Finding a happy hour on a Saturday can sometimes be a difficult goal, but not here. Located in central Castro, this small bar offers 2 for 1 happy hour deals daily....More

It's not a big bar, but it's in a great location, and seems to attract a mixed, friendly crowd. Good prices, with great 2-for-1 Happy Hour promotions at times, as well. However, in terms of that, it could be a little confusing... Friends would come...More

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
