Established in 1861 and purportedly the city’s oldest watering hole, this “down ’n’ dirty” North Beach blues joint “jams every night of the week” with bands that are “loud but always a blast” ; though there’s a modest cover, “don’t expect anything fancy” – the “relaxed” , “dive-bar vibe” , “friendly” service and cheap drinks attract an “inclusive” crowd that’s “fun to watch” , from “bikers” and “old hippies” to “younger” folks.

Cheap.drinks good music and friendly people. Definitely an older crowd (avg age maybe 32) but still great
