The Castro's original neighborhood bar
This was the first gay bar in the nation to have fully open plate glass windows, making the statement that being gay didn't need to mean hiding from the world. There's definitely a regular, somewhat older, crowd here but it's also a nice place to have a quiet conversation and watch the crowd go by the busy intersection of Castro and Market.
