Just a few blocks south of the most hopping stretch of Mission-area bars, you’ll come to this gem that bills itself as a neighborhood bar with “heck of a lot to offer.” And it delivers: There’s a garden patio, space for regular live shows, juke box, pool table, shuffle board, and some of the best happy hour deals in the city—$1 beers for 7 hours every day. Come here to mingle with friendly locals who care more about neighborhood community than the latest trendy scene. Cash only.
