    With pool tables, TVs, video games, and a nice mixture of sitting and standing space, it’s one of the few places on this stretch of road where you’ll never go wrong.

    The most of punk rock all SF sports bars, Kilowatt may be the only establishment playing the Warriors on HDTVs during the game and Danzig, Corrosion of Conformity, and Bad Religion immediately after. Read more

    An narrow dive, but it has an ass on it, so you'll find more seating than you'd expect from the look of it. Clientele is on the younger side.

    For a meal of champions, grab a lamb shawarma from Truly Mediterranean across the street, return to the bar and order one of its mean bloody marys. Read more

    Past home to "Paula's Clubhouse." A mural of queer creatures dancing in outer space adorned the front. Thurs was the big night, "99 cent queer video" at 7 followed by "Junk" a vinyl disco party at 11.

    Good place to grab a beer at the beginning of the night, but uncomfortably crowded as it gets towards morning.

    My favorite neighborhood bar. It gets a little packed on weekends. The bartenders are all great if you're not an asshole. If you are an asshole, stay in North Beach. We don't like looking at you.

    don't expect to be able to carry on a conversation here. the walls refract all words and transform them into nonsensical sexual innuendo.

    Go put your name on the board for pool at Kilowatt on a sunday afternoon, and get your ass kicked (if you're as bad as me). Console yourself with a Black Butte Porter.

    Watch your money when you put it to the bar - tonight was the second time I've put money on the bar to pay for drinks only to be charged again 2 minutes later.
