Popular dance/video bar
The resident VJ plays pop remixes and happy house as boys gather on the small but lively dance floor and hang out in the large bar area. Expect a line on the weekends, especially for the 2-for-1 happy hours Friday evenings. This is an iconic SF bar that hosts packed crowds of young bar hoppers. Abercrombie and jeans is the uniform. It's often a spot on the rotation of popular Castro bar, but not usually the end point. Happy hour (2-for-1 cocktails) Monn - Sat., 3 - 8 p.m., and a popular Beer Busts every Sun., 2 - 8 p.m.
