    $1 drink Mondays. Ladies night Tuesday is a blast even if you're not a lady. Photo Booth at Booty Call Wednesday. Skip the weekends here.

    Wednesdays has been for Booty Call for the last six years, but there have been some other cool things on the weekends too, like Homo Erectus on first Saturdays, and the electro-themed Hard Fridays. Read more

    People tend to be rude here. Why? Tuesday is Switch night. Prepare for more cliche behavior.

    If you like loud annoying girls, terrible music, bad drinks, and rude people then you have arrived.

    Wednesday Night is the night at QBar, who knew San Francisco go out hard on Wednesdays. The crowd starts late, midnight.

    This bar plays all your favorite songs from when you were 14 and it's amazing. Extra plus is everyone looks like robots under the lights.

    Really annoying music on Saturday last night unless you unironically enjoy several hours of dragshow-esque campiness

    Henry Manes · February 3, 2013

    Monday nights. $2 well drinks. 'Nuff said.

    Mike Campton · August 2, 2012

    2 for 1 happy hour on Sunday from open to 9pm. And the drinks are strong enough to make you like boys if you don't already.

    Reagan A. · July 15, 2012
  • Shannon

    Happy hour 2-for-1 drink specials everyday at the Q-Bar. There drinks are pretty dirt cheap too! Saturday at the bar and its nice that they leave the extra garnishes (mint, cherries, limes, olives)

    You probably won't make it out w/o 10-15 hands grabbing your ass. Bathrooms real sketchy.

    Hella strong drinks, especially AMFs and VRBs. I'm from Sacramento, and I've had quite a few drinks from the gay bars downtown. But none of those can match the badass-ness of the ones served here.

    Amazing bloody mary. Ask for yours with whiskey if you want a real treat.

    Watch out for the toilet paper in the bathroom, it likes to follow you out the bathroom & attach to your shoes.
