Phone Booth

Map & Directions 1398 S. Van Ness
San Francisco, CA 94110
  • Daily 1pm-2am


SF Weekly's Description

Hipsterphobes may wish to avoid the Phone Booth, a kitschy li'l Mission dive bar that attracts a young crowd sporting the latest anti-fashions. But if you can overlook the indie posturing, you will be well rewarded by the pool table, a jukebox full of post-punk gems, and bartenders that serve cheap, stiff drinks in a setting that feels like a thrift store with liquor.

    Go to Phone Booth and drink their dirt cheap well drinks and smoke all the cigarettes you'd like in doors again. Heaven.

  • John W. on 12/17/12

    Scuzzy bar full of smoke yet has a charm as strong as the drinks.
