SF Weekly's Description

Its DJs have a penchant for spinning globe-trotting hip-hop that explores everything from South American grooves to Afro-Cuban anthems. The cozy upstairs balcony is where most of the dancing happens, while drinkers downstairs enjoy silent movies projected on the wall and a rough-cut Euro atmosphere. Bookish barflies should also slink over to adjacent Burritt Alley and note a plaque indicating the spot where hardboiled detective Sam Spade's partner was shot in The Maltese Falcon.

    been here a total of maybe 4 times over the past 5 years. each time has been a slightly different crowd albeit each time was a different night and time. nonetheless the vibe was cool but vibrant - if that makes any sense. I definitely like this place.

    Totally hip place with an upstairs. A good after work hangout. -Tim Nugent, Top Chef Just Desserts

    Cozy little spot. Cash only, but worth it.

  • Marjorie B. on 11/23/10

    Smoke a blunt upstairs by the window. then take a shot.

    Do you like random? Excellent, that's what you're going to get. This bar is radical bodacious.
