This place is an original -- just what a bear bar should be. Pool table, patio, frequent beer busts and mobs of big hairy guys and their fans. On one of those rare San Francisco hot afternoons, the shirts come off and the place is awash in hair. Fast, friendly bartenders; for some reason the management won't let them work shirtless, which is a pity. If you want to look at hunky bartenders wearing little but harnesses and boots, go around the corner to Chaps II.
