If the conspicuous absence of hobos reclining around the entrance indicates anything, this chi-chi, predominantly gay establishment has come a long way in its 25 years. Offering cheap beer ($4 draft and $3.75 imports) and signature cocktails—try one of the coffee-infused drinks, especially on a warm night—the intimate lighting and laissez-faire wait staff make this a good place to chill out and enjoy good drinks. Coming here, you may run into the famous or semi-famous (City Council candidate Ed Garren was spotted), or see escaping sailors emerge from the Shanghai Tunnels—the entrance is in front of the bar—in need of a drink.
Perfect patron: Bobos, not hobos. (AW)
