    Their bloodies sub asparagus for celery, and are also garnished with lemon, lime, pickled green beans, and some wonderful salt. Read more

    Found on the top of our list of best dive bars in the city, 500 Club really has nothing special about it, but that is exactly what makes it so awesome. Read more

    This charmingly old-school but very brittle jukebox machine offers vinyl Jamaican reggae oldies, Zeppelin, James Brown, Thelonious Monk, the Gun Club and more. Read more

    The bartenders aren't that friendly unless you're a regular, and there are usually too many TVs on. But it's a good time, the drinks are cheap, and there's a cozy area in back with a broken fireplace. Read more

    Grab a seat in the back bar with your friends and try to "Fill The Table" with empty beer bottles before the bartender cleans them off

    I'm not sure why they don't chill the beer mugs, it makes the beer taste gross.

    If a sweet pretty girl named Jenny happens to be your bartender, then you lucked out with one of the best bartenders in SF! Tip her well, and she will make sure you are feeling really good by close!

    For $6, this is the best value in Bloody Marys in town. And while not Zeitgeist-good, they meet my high bar for Bloodys.

    Apparently Sunday Night Karaoke here is great if you blow/know the karaoke DJ. Love the 500 Club but the KJ can bite me. If you tell my friend she's up in 6 songs and she's not after 12... Eat it.

    True to dive form, the price of drinks can sometimes vary depending on which bartender you’re talking to. Let it go…they’re still cheap. Read more

    It's nice to see the 500 Club -- an old-school dive that starts serving booze in the early morning - still going strong. A sandwich shop across the street makes it hard not to spend hours here. Read more
