Toad Hall *

Formerly: The Pendulum

Video/dance bar with tight-shirt, tight-jean clientele
Opened in February 2009, Toad Hall, its name a homage to the legendary '70s bar of the same name, is an important addition to the Castro bar scene. The bar features a large space with a cool water feature behind the expansive bar. Video DJs and great music. The covered outdoor patio in back is basically an end-run on the city's ban on smoking in public venues, much like the patio at the Mix bar just down the street.
