      awesome place
      i think it used to be ... the bear bar on the castro way back in 1989-1990's i miss the old one seen the outside and recognized it, now it seems to have had changes looks like a fun place to be on weekend

    • Don't go there
      My expressive was horrible. Yesterday I went out with friends (I never go out) I was kicked out with no wallet, no bag, on the street ! The last thing I remember was asking for my bag in the coat check and then two guys came to me and forge me to leave. It was horrible and unpleasant, if you can avoid this do it, there are more places to have fun in the city. (I can't do less than one star)

      OMG! Everyone is 12 here!!....or seems to be. Definitely the place for hey I'm 16 to 22, out and proud, and maybe just a bit to hip for the world to handle. Weak drinks but decent music.

      Best bar in Castro for young indie crowd
      Best music in the Castro with young crowd, awesome guest DJs, and drink specials to boot.

      small space with a big punch
      There's always something going on at Q Bar. Music ranges from pop to house to 80s depending on the night of the week. It's a small space so expect a crowd on Fridays and Saturdays.

      Either dead or too packed to move
      This place when busy (aka Monday, Wednesday, and weekends) is so packed that you can barely get to the bar. Combine the small packed space with some people actually trying to dance and even a non closterphobic person will feel a bit cramped. During the week they have a good 2-4-1 happy hour that runs later than most Castro bars, but you will find yourself inside with maybe a handful of otter people on it's non-peak days. Wednesday make sure to somehow make it to the very back of the club for your photo to be taken for Booty Call Wednesdays. They have a different backdrop and props every week. Great for your next Facebook profile pic
