    There are no toilets in the bathroom, just one long trough with a mirror behind it. If you don’t want your business on display, ask the bartender for the key to the single-use toilet. Read more

    always a fun time here with friends... the DJ on Sat night plays great music and is super cute as well. Of course, I can't forget to mention DJ Ruben, always great music from him as well... and so e

    "For the bear or daddy type, no one else" ... I think that's an over-generalization. I've been here many times and I actually find the vibe fun, relaxed, & accepting. Don't be scared, it's a blast.

    The bartenders do a great job. I'm partial to Big Daddy brew and they always poor with a smile. Great group to chat with but keep in mind most are men on a mission! Have fun!

    If you wanna have a beer and not have a single person come talk to u go to 440 back corner around 7 on Tuesdays. Cheap beer and no creeps

    One of our favorite bear/daaddy bars on the planet. If you're not a bear, it's a fun place to come chill and be man handled.

    You know that scene in Selena where that poor Mexican woman gets crushed up against that chain-link fence at the crowded concert? That's how I feel here. I'm that poor Mexican woman.

    Great bar if you're looking for a masculine crowd. Lately there has been more "attitude" at this bar, but I still love it. Read more

    Cut the scene bullshit and get to the bar where the drinks are cold, the men are hot, and if you're lucky, both are strong.

    Jeff R · August 10, 2011
  • AJ R.

    Some strong a$$ drinks here with some cute bartenders. Older clientele but everyone is friendly & welcoming!

    Drink chips are good all the time. If you forget to use them, bring them back for next time!

    If you're drinking beer, get it at the front bar.... It's never quite cold enough from the back bar.

    Two for one drink specials are tokens good for drinks any other time of the day.

    Parking your ass at the top of the stairs is dangerous and proves you are a moron.

    Knock on the closed bathroom door or find the key at the front bar

    Thomas Tymstone · August 1, 2011

    It's loud and raucous, so if you're into that you should be able to have to a good time.

    One of the last real gay bars (read: fewer screechy, straight girls) left in the Castro.
