Shanghai Kelly's

Map & Directions 2064 Polk
San Francisco, CA 94109
  • Sun 9:30am-2am, Mon-Fri 1pm-2am, Sat 12pm-2am


SF Weekly's Description

The cooler labeled "spare livers" above the bar is indicative of the workouts livers get here. Russian Hill bros outnumber gals ten-to-one. There's so much male bonding going on that the din drowns out the sportscasters from the three screens set to various sports channels. The kitschy decor (photos of Gilligan and his island hotties, a man mooning sheep in New Zealand, etc.) offers plenty of visual stimuli for those who attempt to try all of the house-made cocktails (many of which are liquor + lemonade).

    If you're looking for a more low key bar but with an enthusiastic crowd this is the place to go. You can always count on Polk street to get you tipsy and this bar is definitely on that train. I was there just last weekend and met some very interesting people. Hey- you always come home with a story to tell!

    Order Obama shots for your whole crew. 2 parts vodka and 1 part hope.

  • Rob R. on 11/21/11

    Check out the specials, take in the whacky decorations, and make sure to only speak well of the Steelers. Also, if they're looking to fill out a bus to the giants/niners games, get in on that!

  • Bill C. on 11/11/11

    Pittsburgh Steelers bar on Sundays

  • Kyle P. on 03/07/11
