Description

SF Weekly's Description

The 21 Club is one of the last remaining bastions of Tenderloin dive bar living. This small liquor den -- located at the untouristy intersection of Turk and Taylor -- serves stiff drinks and frothy beers to a diverse crowd of both grizzled old-timers and bohemian youth. The walls are crammed with dusty mementos and non-ironic kitsch that complement a jukebox laden with musical memories from decades gone by. Although the overhead TV is usually tuned to sports or the prime-time movie du jour, sometimes the most intense drama happens right outside the 21 Club's front door -- here in the heart of the Tenderloin, life itself is a round-the-clock tragicomedy.

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Get a seat by the huge windows, which look out on the intersection of Turk and Taylor streets in the Tenderloin.
