Ended up visiting this place by accident really and only found out its name through Tripadvisor reviews, cheesy decor but was a pretty cool place to stop for a drink in Chinatown.

My spouse and I recently traveled to SFO, for a special birthday celebration! While in Chinatown we recognized the Li Po Lounge from an Anthony Bourdain special and decided to stop in for a Mai Tai. We were not disappointed! We had a great conversation with the bartender and she described the ingredients of the Mai Tai . . . Dark rum, light rum, Bacardi 151 and Chinese Liquer and pineapple juice. We actually had two and almost missed ou dinner reservations! It was a very memorable birthday experience! We also purchased a jug of the imported Chinese rose liquer, the special ingredient for the Mai Tais. Happy to say it traveled safely back home with us wrapped in bubble wrap in our checked in luggage!

Stopped by after dinner and had a great time, Mai Tai's are potent but fantastic. Best dive bar ever, you have to stop in if you're in China town

Pretty small dive bar. Chinese Mai Tai is their specialty. It's $9 and tastes pretty awesome, and will get you sort of drunk. If you are in Chinatown check it out.
