Li Po Cocktail Lounge
San Francisco, CA 94108
- Mon-Fri 9am-6pm
SF Weekly's Description
Granted, the competition is slim, but Li Po is the hippest music venue in Chinatown. The dank little basement (below the divey old bar) hosts fringe punk, funk, electro, and rock for a fashionista set, in an environment that has all the cinematic charms of the shadowy old neighborhood.
Tips from foursquare
Coolest little bar in Chinatown, where tired regulars, hip locals & confused tourists meet. Tip: Get a shot of the magical Chinese elixir pronounced “in-gah-pay” in the clay bottle behind the bar.
The mai tais are deadly, but tasty.
sunday. soul. funk. the best night ever.
I'm the mayor because I was here before Bourdain, bitches!
A gem of a bar located smack in the middle of Chinatown. Just do it. You won't leave disappointed.
