    A refreshing spot with character in an increasingly homogenous part of town. No pretense, good liquor selection, and a cool second floor to watch the crowd below.

    Quintessential San Francisco spot: located above an iconic massage parlor/brothel, at the bottom of a huge hill, and way cooler inside than the outside would ever promise.

    Love the bartenders here; generous pours and always a nice spot to stop by for the perfect sazerac. Cash only. Try the cucumber-basil martini as well!

    An awesome bar located on top of the Stockton Street Tunnel, serving cheap drinks (cash only) and is generally packed after-work and on the weekends.

    Great music and what the other tip said: Get a mojito and sit by the corner upstairs! Do not order a straight mojito unless you like growing mint plants in your stomach (just add dirt).

    This place has very bad air circulation and on a very busy t can get super crowded but it is so much fun (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Cash only is kind of annoying, but it's a great atmosphere and the fresh fruit used in mixers is fantastic.

    This place is a crazy mix of hipsters, bar rats, and neighborhood locals. Cash only bar and some seriously loud music.

    Cash only, but great upstairs and good atmosphere on Monday nights. Try a gin and tonic.

    Pretty cool bar with 9% beer. Don't miss the possibly unique scale ATM in America.

    Give the Full Boar a try on tap. It's only $4 and is very tasty. Slightly hoppy at first with a great aftertaste. 7.4% abv, so drink responsibly!

    Tunnel top is wack. Too much Pop music and the crowd is lame, hipster types.

    Cash only. Slightly annoying, but I suppose to be expected from a "dive bar."
