    San Francisco’s most famous trivia night and arguably one of its most difficult—think Wall Street Journal meets China–is held here on Tuesdays at 8:30pm. Read more

    Pretty good dive bar. Very good happy hour deal. $3 pints and $3 well drinks from 4pm-7pm.

    Used to be a great dive bar, now they seem to be trying to turn it into a club. Super disappointing.

    Random crowd but you can't beat the cheap drink prices.

    The smell of old beer fills my nostrils. The decor is like a castle saloon hybrid; complete with kitschy music. It's a quaint little place.

    It's been years since I haunted this place. Though the faces have changed, the feeling has remained the same which makes me happy. Still the best place for Scotch in the TL, quite possibly SF.

    I remember when a group of us would come a find a table upstairs and hang out, people watch and listen to good music. Apparently, now it's a club with awful loud obnoxious music. And douchebags.

    Their pub trivia is some of the best in the city; they let you bring in food from other places.

    Yes I said it, great hang out & they kept the Scotish feel about the place.

    Be kind and tip your bartenders! It sounds odd, but ask for a PBR with lemon. #winning
