    Before the word "hipster" came to define the Mission, The Phone Booth was a hipster bar with a little bit of an ambiguously gay bent. The well-loved jukebox here is terrifically eclectic. Read more

    Ask for a Cracked Chandelier, its Sambuca White Bacardi Rum and Sprite. Simply put it taste like Good and Plenty candy.
