The area
Address
Neighborhood: The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.

Great for dancing

We had one of our most fun nights out at this club. The video dj played a great mix of music which had me dancing away for a long time.

Cunning bartenders
Feb 2019 • Friends
My partner, a friend and I came to this place by chance. Somewhat good music, friendly atmosphere, one of the bartenders was alright. Had a couple rounds of drinks. On the last round I ordered the drinks for a different bartender, he watered down our drinks with soda when I wasn’t looking. Tried to talk to him, he didn’t care. Tried the first bartender, not even to get new drinks but just to warn him of the situation, he couldn’t care less. Just too bad they want to make money out and of you by being cunning.

Not a safe place for people of color
Dec 2018 • Friends
Last night i experienced racism by fellow clubgoers . I alerted the security and several staff regarding the incident and they did nothing!! Later on the same night a black man as accused of pickpocketing with out any merit. This is not a safe place for people of color! The Castro should be safehaven for all people!!!

Taste of San Francisco night life
Dec 2018 • Couples
This bar/club is in the heart of the gay area.

Welcoming and friendly.

Pay for entry on a Saturday.

Pop music so easy listening.

Drinks average price.

Seedy and sexy

It was a lot to take in for a little kiwi boy. The bar staff are very friendly and I had more than one offer of being shown around by the bartenders after their shift ended lol. There was one Latino bar tender I wish I'd got his number, he saw my police warrant and was so into me. Lol

Where is the Friday night happy hour crowd?
Aug 2017 • Friends
Where is the Friday night happy hour crowd? Is it down based on the bar tender complaining about his tip or just a result in changing tastes? I have always enjoyed coming here when in town. Fun, diverse, non-pretentious crowd. Happy video music. Good cheap drinks. Friends say the crowd picks up around 11pm now. Still a fun place - just not quite the place to go for Friday happy hour anymore.

Always fun in SF
Jan 2016
We always come to Badlands when we are in SF, love the drinks and dancing. Music is played by a VJ and includes showtunes, pop and anything else one would like to dance to.

The place gets packed, so come early and enjoy.

If you don't know anyone in SF, you will now.

I went to San Francisco by myself and basically stayed in the castro. I stumbled upon Badlands because I met a few people at The Q. They said that Badlands was the place to dance. The line was long but it went quick. The music is current music, top 20, and there is a large mix of people. It doesn't matter if you don't know anyone because you will be dancing with someone by the end of the night! Fun and energetic, but it may be crowded for people who like their own space! It def left a mark on me and I will always come back when I'm in the area!
