The Brown Jug Saloon

Dive Bar, Bar
496 Eddy St (at Hyde St.)
San Francisco, CA 94109
(415) 501-0327

The Brown Jug is a true dive claiming everyone who enters its doors as a victim. The drinks are cheap, the jukebox plays Johnny Cash, regulars play pool, and bartenders are friendly. Good luck on your stumble home early in the morning.


  • I saw a guy drop dead of a heart attack here and people kept drinking and stepped over his body... Whoa!!
  • This place raises the standard for dive bar, to a new low.
  • Nicknamed "The Brown Drug." Get $2 pints of PBR, ask for an ashtray, then get the hell out of here before midnight.
  • Best shitty dive, especially since the Nitecap closed!
