Chelsea Place

Map & Directions 641 Bush St.
San Francisco, CA 94108-3511


SF Weekly's Description

With Tiffany-style stained glass lamps hanging above the bar, wall cabinets filled chock-a-block with photos and trophies, and a fake fireplace in the rear, the Chelsea Place could almost be someone's living room. It feels suitably lived-in, too, with just enough scruffiness that you'd have to try pretty hard to be underdressed, even though tony Nob Hill lies immediately outside the door. If you're the creative-minded type, using the basement bathrooms almost seems like an adventure -- one can easily imagine secret subterranean tunnels linking Chelsea Place to some nearby Chinatown dive, with any number of untold intrigues passing between the two. But for the most part this unassuming old bar plays a simple, modest role: the friend who's always there for an after-work drink before you head back to your actual home later.

    Drink cheap whiskey and munch on bar nuts while making strangely entertaining conversation with FOB bartenders.

    There are "dive" bars and dive bars. Former frequented by hipsters, the later by depressed middle-aged alcoholics. Chelsea Place is the later.

    Would suggest not venturing into the dungeon to go to the bathroom. Was waiting for the rapist to jump out of one of the random doors.

  • Borden O. on 12/28/11

    going to the pissers here is like traveling through the hobbit tale.

    This is where dreams go to die
