    Come before 8.30pm and enjoy two for one drinks. There is always an after-work crowd that leaves early. Then a second crowd arrives later. What fun! It is like visiting two bars in one night. Read more

    Two for one drinks during happy hours. A very good way to get happily sozzled in the Castro.

    Good pour here, and great specials on Friday

    Amy Legge · January 25, 2015
  • Natalia B.

    Drinks okay. Better music and company than in other gay clubs. Otherwise, all the same American thing: people tipsy as early as 10pm, no cosy atmosphere (lights on in a club) and super early closing.

    So much fun. Good drinks, music on Saturday night could be better!

  • Sam G.

    Avoid the Friday and Saturday night crowds. Come before 9pm for 2 for 1 happy hour, or Thursday or Sunday night.

    Great bar/club for a dance to some pop music. Played Spice Girls so gets my vote.

    Happy Hour here runs late and hard, the Thursday and especially Friday afterwork scene 6pm-8.30pm is intense. The drinks are insanely cheap so hope you make it out of this place standing up.

    Hornet App · October 4, 2013
  • Cory N.

    Fun atmosphere (fog machine, lighted wall, disco ball) cheap drinks, hot bartenders, def the place to be seen :)

    Ask for bartender Ian! He's so friendly, make sure you tip him well & he'll take care of you tonight. ;)

    They finally have Grey Goose! #fancy

  • Party Earth

    Instead of a regular Long Island, ask for the ‘Long Island Iced Tea from scratch.’ It’s an extra $1.50, but it just might be the only drink you need that evening. Sip slowly.

    Party Earth · August 15, 2012
  • Quirks B.

    Go somewhere less crowded... Unless you are shitfaced and don't give a f***.

    Cool place, but if you like older men, you won't find them here (try Truck instead).
