Why locals recommend it
Any time I take my dogs in this classic Mission district bar (the well behaved ones!), I just let them off and they just roam around happily while I play pool or pinball. Fellow patrons and staff welcome them with pats and cuddles. Plus they always have guest microbrews I’ve never heard of. This is a historic spot-in 1906 it survived the big earthquake and the owner at the time put in the fancy wooden back bar, which has been the same ever since.

No hard alcohol, but a great craft beer selection paired with a couple of pool tables and a restored Victorian building. A short walk from the heart of the Mission.

Great atmosphere for drinks with friends. Over 100 years old this old world saloon is charming with great craft beers.
