    I was manhandled by the bouncers and the staff and when I opposed that I got kicked out of the bar. All my friends were inside and it was my going away party. Shittiest experience ever.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    This place is super crowded and loaded with loaded people around 11pm. A necessary stop along your drunken Mission spree.

    The Simpsons Pinball machine is broken and by some miracle it never ends your game. PLAY IT!

    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!
