    Monday is not so busy, so locals and Karaoke buffs that don't want to wait 2 hours to sing ONE song at The Mint, can chill here. All are welcome! Karaoke means NEVER having to say you're sorry!

    This is without a doubt a gay bar. However if that doesn't bother you it has one of the best people watching/ drinking/ outside views in SF hands down!

    I got so wasted on one screwdriver. I'm not very tolerant... Had a great time at the Lookout, though! This is one of my favorite hangs if I do go drinking... it's very "southern veranda" with it's vie

    It's right there in the name: this bar has a commanding view of a nice busy Castro intersecton. Very fun on big weekend afternoons like Pride, Folsom St., Castro St. Fair, Halloween, etc. Read more

    In the middle of the Castro. Fun place to go to during pride weekend. They usually do 2 for 1 drinks (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Going for 4$ margaritas is totally worth it. The bartenders and pretty cool too. Attentive.

    Best views in the Castro (both of city life and eye candy). Nights in the Castro or after-Brunch cocktails always seem to begin at the Lookout for me and my peeps. Great atmosphere, booze, and views.

    Only good for people watching. When it gets too packed you can't find a spot anywhere, and when it's dead it's boring.

    Perfect place for Sunday Funday late afternoon dancing and people watching on the balcony overlooking the Castro.

    Sundays is Jock, hence - hot jocks (Manhunt is usually part of the event). Awesome views, and delicious cocktails.
