SF Weekly's Description
So you're a new hipster in town. Or you've just decided that you want to have sex with a hipster. Where should you go? Try the Uptown, particularly on Wednesdays when beer is extracheap. You'll know you've arrived when you begin to feel vaguely uncomfortable and notice all the fixies chained up, their owners puffing cigarettes outside and snubbing homeless people. Head inside, though, and the quirky tinted-red innards of Uptown and its warm weirdness welcome you to stay a while. Maybe it's the cushy old booths, or the pool table that's slightly off. All we know is that seven PBRs later, you'll be playing Simpsons pinball against some guy with big sunglasses and a pet rat on his shoulder, wondering when your Steely Dan jukebox selection will play. That is when you know you are home.
Tips from foursquare
When they're not visualizing the Twitterverse for MTV and Nike, the staff of Stamen (a 2011 Most Innovative Company) heads to this bar, which is known for its comfy couches.
Cheap beer, good crowd. Get there early and snag a seat on one of the sofas
Cheap drinks + great bartenders = !!
Great (and cheap) beer, a jukebox, and couches! What can possibly go wrong? Oh yeah, everybody else loves this place too! Make sure you arrive early or you may not be able to get a couch.
