Worst

The place is good during the week, but avoid the place on the weekends. The music is the only saving grace, but the crowds are bunch of clones.

Not allowed in 11/6/2005

I just moved here 2 weeks ago from Texas. My friends and I had been in for an hour and left to go check out some other bars. When we came back, the doorman checked my ID and didnt believe it was me and then told me they can only take California IDs. I am 29 and my ID looks like me. The doorman would not allow me in - would not allow me to speak to a manager and then told me: ""Dont trip and fall walking back to your car"" - I couldnt belive how rude he was - aggresive and threatening. I dont plan on going there again. Be sure you have a California ID if you visit. more

Loungie and Hip 2/23/2004

The transition of ""The Bar"" on castro from what it previously had to offer is fantastic. Very cozy and comfortable for having an after work drink or if your out and about visiting the various Castro bars. The music tends to be house and lounge mix. The new decor is very welcoming, and the staff is even more inviting. I recommend ""The Bar"" as a great place to start your evening while visiting the Castro! Pros: Music, Drinks, Atmosphere more

only place in the hood with decent music 9/12/2003

This place has been making an interesting transition over the last couple years. When it first opened the crowd was predominantly of the younger generic types (think lots of black clothing and ""Friends"" haircuts), and the smell of cologne some nights was overpowering. It seems to be undergoing a very long series of rennovations. Supposedly they're moving the DJ booth to the back of the room to open up more space soon. The overall ambiance is a lot cooler with the glowing red color scheme that appeared recently. The sound system is possibly the best I've heard in a venue of this size. Pros: great DJ's and music, diverse cool crowd Cons: layout a bit cramped more

Hot Men, Staff & Music 8/25/2003

If you're not looking for Castro Clones, this is the spot for you. Hot men, bartenders, and great music makes for a great atmosphere. Go it alone or with friends, you won't be disappointed. Pros: hot men, hot staff, great atmosphere Cons: sometimes too crowded more

very trendy among the cheezy divas! 12/4/2002

The place is good during the week, but avoid the place on the weekends. The music is the only saving grace, but the crowds are bunch of clones. more
