    Twin Peaks is the best place to sit in the window, sip an Irish Coffee and watch the colors stroll by. The cocktails inside the Glass Coffin, as it is affectionately known, are as stiff as ever. Read more

    Some call this an elephant's graveyard, but it's not really true! Great views out of the large windows and right across from the Castro Muni Metro. Best time to go is during a sunny afternoon.

    If San Francisco is where gay go to die, this is where they are put on display in "the glass coffin"... saying that, the big windows are perfect for people watching. MAD people watching.

    The window of the ladies room (upstairs) is next to the exhaust fan for Hot Cookie and makes it the best smelling bathroom in the city!

    Great views of Castro square and friendly atmosphere. Funny music as well. Good for a drink at the early evening.

    Definitely old school, but super friendly bartenders and clientele. Come for a good drink and a good conversation.

    One of the few Castro bars where one can have a drink without one's eardrums exploding; sightseeing the fellow freaks with the glass walls!

    One of the first bars in Castro. Pretty chill inside. Had a mule and it wasn't that good. But cool bar overall. Worth trying

    Make sure to enjoy a hot buttered rum! Only place in the Castro to enjoy one, and only during the holiday season!

    Icónico bar en el corazón de Castro District, pidan cerveza de barril la sirven en generosos vasos de medio litro. Siéntense en los ventanales y disfruten la vista.
