Description

SF Weekly's Description

The venue formerly known as the Matador - and the Arrow Bar before that - has morphed yet again. The Deco-retro wood bar and cool vintage lights are still here, however, with a handful of candlelit tables edging the small dance floor in back. And whatever subtle decor changes may occur, this li'l spot on gritty Sixth Street is always a source of sweet downtown beats, ranging from indie hip-hop, funk, and dubstep to downtempo, house, and more. Keep an ear bent their way if underground sounds are your thing.
