Good mix of ages

The Pilsner is located just a few block outside of "Castro proper" which makes it a heck of a lot more appealing. (less of a "suburb" crowd like the Cafe...)Mostly local guys ranging from mid 20's to late 40's/early 50's, not too girl oriented. As a matter of fact, I've never seen many girls there, so probably best to leave your fag hags at home. The bar itself is a little small, but they have a nice pool table and a killer backyard area which gets really crowded during the summer. Very casual, levi's crowd looking to hook up (aka not a lot of posers standing around). Definitely worth a visit.

Friendliest bar in town

Just visiting for 5 days. Came here for the last 4. Not the busiest nor the home of the 'in' crowd, but I had more patrons make me feel welcome here than any other place in SF.

Welcoming and Friendly Low-Key Bar on Church

Friendly and unpretentious patrons are always hanging out at this bar. The drinks are good, and there is a nice back patio for those who like the outdoor atmopshere (if you don't mind cigarette smoke). Very mixed group of gays and lesbians who are here for a drink or two while playing some pool, and watching sports on the TV that hang over the bar. If you're looking for a loud music and topless boys, try another bar as you'll only find a relax and friendly crowd who just want to talk and laugh the night away.
