Fun dive bar in the middle of San Francisco

Not easy to find a fun, low key bar in the city. Drinks are good, excellent beer/cider selection. Good prices also. We didn't eat but there is a full menu of bar food available... read more

This is a great little dive bar, located in San Francisco City, a few blocks away from Powell St Bart station. This bar has cheap drinks & a young crowd.

Had lunch there the other day for the first time and I was not impressed. Found some hair in a pickle that was on the side of my plate. Totally grossed me out. Didn't enjoy the sandwich I'd orded. For what it's worth the other 4 or 5 people in my party said they enjoyed the food.

Thank Haig S

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
