This is a pretty cool bar and the atmosphere is really relaxed. You can still see the famous bullet holes in the wooden bar. Unfortunately the bar lady was quite unfriendly and threw us out at 11pm because she wanted to close up.

Thanks to the very friendly couple who also own the bar we had a magnificent time. So glad we went out of our way to get there, well worth it. They let us stay a little longer after closing time and the conversation kept flowing....More

Amazing proper drinking bar.. Awesome beer... Owner and locals are super friendly, the service was great - we sat for an hour getting travelling tips. Go there! Pool, pinball and an amazing selection of craft beers

From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people.
