SF Weekly's Description

With moderately priced (and heavily poured) drinks, a sprawling patio, and an intimate stage in a side room, this Mission District destination is a keystone of indie-hipster nightlife. DJs spin everything from country to funk, bands play everything from samba to punk, and the $1 Monday nights are the stuff of legend.

    Now there's a reason to love Mondays: $1 Pabst and $2 well drinks, all day long.
