An average gay bar

A Decent place to grab a beer but nothing spectacular. It is worth a stop if you are around anyways.

We were in SF for the first time so we were bar hoping to take in the local night life. This was a cute bar with lively music. We didn't stay long as the bar was very busy. The drinks were strong.

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,
