    Cool place

    When it's not packed, a great place to chill, play some pinball, and knock back a few cheap drinks.

    Great bar! Disco dance floor upstairs! They make a good Manhattan and their house cocktails are a bit fruity, but still good.

  • Pedro C.
    Nice place, but in all honesty, I don't really like music that loud.
  • Renée V.
    A solid Mission staple. Bring quarters for pinball machines. Bar is cash only

    Cheap drinks are good. Cheap drinks that are too cool for you aren't. Can get packed nuts to butts in here. Still, better a quasi-dive than another Mission craft cocktail nightmare.

    So many rumors of this place closing... and yet... open?

    If you have ever wondered what that weird artsy movie about a rat and a bear is, it's called The Right Way. Quite a gem!

    If you like 60s music, then you'll love Soul Party. Wear your vintage best and get ready to dance!

    I liked the place since the first moment I saw it, music was great, they have pinball machines. But the service took all the charm away. It took 20 minutes before the not busy bar tender came back.

    Former beloved neighborhood spot with good beers and pinball. Now the former location of Mission Condos.

    Half the pinball machines are unreliable so you an probably get free games
    Dave Cummings · June 14, 2015

    Cheap and strong cocktails. They host events upstairs, but get there an hour early because they never have enough chairs and if you're short you'll never see the stage
    Ashley Mowrey · May 11, 2015

    Kick ass Moscow Mules. The barman is quick as hell !!

    They use a lot of sweet & sour in their cocktails...heartburn city here we come!

    Pretty consistently packed, if you can snag a table for you and your gal pals, do it. Otherwise you're bound to be in someone's way at all times.
    Emily Kane · March 22, 2015

    Strong Moscow mules and awesome tunes!

    Great bar. Good beers. Hard to get a seat on a Friday night though.
    Andrew Harvey · January 29, 2015
  • T S.
    Crowded on a friday night but some space to move and find a place to talk w/friends. Good crowd + staff was friendly. Quick to get a drink at the bar. Dancing upstairs had a $5 cover.

    I never go for the bar downstairs. It's all about the live music, or djs going on upstairs. Expect crowds, lots of marijuana smoke, and a diverse crowd. Usually someone there with no deodorant. :-)

    The Elbo Room deserves a mention for $2 special draft beers during happy hour, discount cocktails and a bank of pinball machines that you can use to take out the day's aggression. Read more

    Pinballs aren't well maintained and all the sounds are turned off 😞

    I love their spiked blueberry lemonade. I also love taking drunk photos in the photo booth.

    Best happy hour for beer in San Francisco - and it lasts until 9p. You can beat it. Friendly enough staff. They feature pinball and a photo booth. They project movies on the bak wall. Super cool.
    Russell Allen E. · August 1, 2014
  • Alyssa F.
    This place is super crowded and loaded with loaded people around 11pm. A necessary stop along your drunken Mission spree.
    Alyssa Foote · July 17, 2014
  • Brett F.
    Don't try to go upstairs. Door people are OBNOXIOUS .

    The Simpsons Pinball machine is broken and by some miracle it never ends your game. PLAY IT!
    Casey O'Brien · April 5, 2014
  • Russell Allen E.
    Seriously, one of the best happy hour spots in the mission. This place has a cool vibe, a photo booth, arcade games, a dj, and get this… you can get a pint of good beer for $3.50 until 9pm!

    5 pinball machines in the back, but the lighting is kind of junk. Beware of The Simpsons machine as the tilt fucked up and it's set to be really stingy on free balls.
