We came here after having drinks at another bar nearby. I loved the owl decor. Drinks were great and very reasonably priced. We had a great time here!

No customer service, no eye contact and still had to leave a tip as it was San Fran. Had one drink and got out. Wish we didn't walk into this place.

Really great bar which was just across the road from our hotel. The bar staff were great and really friendly and the choice of music was excellent. The two TVs were glued to the baseball on one and American football on the other and there was usually an animated crowd watching one or the other. Definitely stop by for a... More

Our Friday night experience as delightful ! The bartender served my wife and I the best Old Fashioned we ever had !!! The bar was busy without being crowded. Our Saturday night experience was fine but nothing notable.

The rating had nothing to do with the bar itself. We just happen to go in on the night of the NBA Finals and our arrival in SF had us coming in when the game was almost over. It was a sad affair as the Duds lost to the Cavalier so the entire place was in a sad mood.

Stayed at a hotel close by and just dropped by this little bar. They played good music and offered good drinks. Easy to get friends to talk to when you where there.

A perfect spot for a drink before dinner across the street. The bar staff was very friendly and drinks good. I would aim for happy hour next time as the drinks seemed a little expensive. The bar itself is small. We would go back!
