  • Scuzzy bar full of smoke yet has a charm as strong as the drinks.
  • Keep your eye open for Panda sightings!
  • Rumple Minze and Cults on the jukebox. People, I am home.
  • Don't sit near Joan H., she pees her pants All. The. Time.
  • Any dive bar with a great jukebox and Macallan 18 gets my vote.
  • In a city not known for its cheapness, you can still get a strong cocktail here for less than $4 and the jukebox is a who's who of punk and indie rock icons.
  • Cape cod for days
  • Buy Gavo a beer...he's a bitch
  • If indoor smoking is your thing, this is a good place to be
  • The best place in the Mission for dirt cheap drinks and a good hang.
  • This place is super chill. They also have a Barbie chandelier (2 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • There's a hidden pistachio dispenser.
  • My favorite bar in San Francisco. Free popcorn, PBR and billiards!
  • Best jukebox ever!!!
  • Ask for a Cracked Chandelier, its Sambuca White Bacardi Rum and Sprite. Simply put it taste like Good and Plenty candy.
  • SF Weekly's Best Of 2011 Winner - Reader's Poll - BEST JUKE BOX
  • 2$ Tecate cans
  • The well loved jukebox here is terrifically eclectic, with everything from country to punk, shoutouts to Peaches and TLC, and a hefty helping of Morrissey and Depeche Mode.
  • Sick jukebox. Cheap beers and a good pool table. Great vibe too
  • Too loud and the smell is always a problem
