Map & Directions 582 Haight
San Francisco, CA 94117
  • Sun, Sat 12pm-2am, Mon-Fri 4pm-2am


SF Weekly's Description

Punk and thrash on the jukebox. Bartenders with bullet belts and spiky hair. Cheap liquor. If this weren't San Francisco, Molotov's would be a divey, possibly frightening hangout for nihilistic drunk punks - but as it is, this surprisingly bright and clean Lower Haight bar welcomes drinkers of all types. There are soft benches along one wall and pinball machines along the other, plus a pool table in the rear. With Suicidal Tendencies and Black Flag setting the scene on the speakers, life can be good - even if the bands may be singing about how much it sucks.
