My ex girlfriend 7/17/2011

My ex girlfriend was a stripper around the corner. I forget the name of the club as I've been in China for 7 years. But, strippers drink at the Ha-Ra. That should be enough to get them more business from those who didn't know that. The girls get in a quick drink or two before going back to take off their clothes for money. And you know...now that I think about it, I believe she used to sleep with Rick the bartender. more

Great old school dive 8/4/2010

Awesome bartenders, great old school atmosphere, what more can you ask for. This is what a bar should be , not to clean , a little rough around the edges and bartenders that don't take crap from anyone. I LOVE THIS PLACE! more

Cool atmosphere********** Old school ambience 10/9/2008

I love the place, very quaint.....old school ambience. ""Rick"" is very entertaining,.......and a cuite pie too. Pros: Ambience ""old"" school, reminds me of the good old daze by day and modern at night Cons: parking a problem sometimes (catch a cab) have more fun more

Gritty and Cheap 7/25/2006

If you're into things like great service and sparkling ambience, it's best to stay as far away from this place as possible. If, however, you enjoy remembering when the Tenderloin was gritty, dark, and a little mean, then you've found your bar. I've seen Carl, the bartender, kick people out for ordering margaritas (""We don't serve that fancy sh*t in here"") and for playing pool too loudly. It's a comfortable little hole in the wall, a perfect refuge from the ""Trendyloin."" And did I mention that the drinks are unbelievably cheap? Pros: atmosphere, cost Cons: service, location (according to some) more

Great jukebox. I need nothing else. 4/24/2006

When you're downtown and looking for a chill bar where you can have a few cheap drinks and talk to some of your not-so-fancy-pants friends while listening to some good old-time tunes, this is your place. Sure, it's kinda gritty... but loveably so. more

TRUE ""OLD SAN FRANCISCO"" 3/4/2006

The Ha Ra Club is one of the last ""Old San Francisco"" drinking establishments. Don't expect any fancy drinks here as you will be asked ""where do you think are, South Of Market""? Carl, the meanest bartender in San Francisco, will promptly put you in your place, he hates all humans. Jerry, is one of San Francisco's origional bartenders, and if he in the mood, will mix you one of the best Martini's on the planet. A good mix of ""regulars"" and ""rookies"". With Frank, Dino & Sammy playing on the box, you would expect to see a few ""Wiseguys"" in this joint. Pros: Bartenders, Inexpensive, Pool Table Cons: Bathrooms, Parking, No Bar Snacks more

pure trash 10/31/2003

this place is awful, i live around the corner and you couldn't pay me to go back. it's great if you like rude service, i'm not into to that, man. Cons: everything more

Four Stars! 6/11/2003

The bartender, I think his name was Doc Adams, was a riot. We were practically stealing the beer it was so cheap. I had a blast, and my girlfriend Angie was so impressed, she's planning her birthday party there. Pros: Doc Adams, Angie Williams, Charlotte Bryant Cons: Parking, Noise, Smell more

Mean people man 6/9/2003

At first I was scared man. I was called razor blade head by two guys who were super drunk. But the bartender was cool man. He let my pal Aaron Buer and I sit and chill out man. They were cool with gays and Asians to man. Pros: Asian Friendly, Gay Friendly, Bob Harris Cons: Surliness, Parking, Smell more

Pure Tenderloin 6/9/2003

This bar has it all...lots of cigarette smoke, beer, and fun and games. Bartender Bob Harris kept the place going hard. His jokes with the locals are worth a beer stop for sure. Friday night is open mic and local comedian Aaron Buer brought the house down. Pros: Comedy Night, Beer, Price Cons: Smell more

Great time was had 2/7/2003

Bartender was a hoot! We exchanged jokes and he gave me the lowdown on all of the locals as they came and went. Not being from the SF area it was quite an experience, a throw back to the 60's and 70's. Oh by the way DO NOT wear your baseball cap backwards into the HA-RA or you will recieve the wrath of the bartender! ( I agree with him ). I just wish I could remember his name. Quite an experience for a hick from South Dakota. Pros: great bartender, cool regulars more

cheap and friendly 8/19/2002

This place is the true epitome of the tenderloin neighborhood bar. It has spruced itself up quite a bit in recent years but is still dirt cheap at only $2.50 per pint. The bartenders are all super friendly as well. more
