    Mellow spot with great bar staff! There is pretty much always something going here. Sometimes it can get really packed, which isn't my gig so much. But when it is not totally swamped, it is a great place to have a drink with friends.

    The jukebox is always free and is pretty much the best jukebox in town!

    I would venture to say this is the best SF venue, save for Bottom of the Hill. Lets just say its the best small venue for music in SF, then. Or your favourite Tendernob local. Whatever you like, darling. Fer ye smokers out there, due to some nifty lil design thinking, you can actually sit in a bar in SF and smoke (its a detached room you enter from inside the bar). And the best part? You're not charged a cover to enter the bar just to drink when there are shows! They collect your bucks at the back so no worries if you just need some Budweiser in you. The best jukebox in the city (Zeitgeist is the 2nd best) -- where else are you gonna find Kimya Dawson on a juke, the best nights of my life have been spent here...
