The decor is very cool, art-deco vibe. Quite a few good beers on tap. A great little bar in its own right - aside from its obvious Beat affiliations.

Just go, the atmosphere and surroundings are great. It's amazing that its not yet covered in hipsters. Drinks were not expensive and the vibe is just right.

Don't know about th food but a great little bar. Well worth a few beers. Has great history too. This was a key place in the beats and counter culture movements.

I know I know poor title, but this bar is a must visit that hasn't succumbed to the tourist bit.

Last visit was 2002 and being there today, the same place.

Will get there again before leaving SF
