    This is without a doubt a gay bar. However if that doesn't bother you it has one of the best people watching/ drinking/ outside views in SF hands down!

    Monday is not so busy, so locals and Karaoke buffs that don't want to wait 2 hours to sing ONE song at The Mint, can chill here. All are welcome! Karaoke means NEVER having to say you're sorry!

    Perfect place for Sunday Funday late afternoon dancing and people watching on the balcony overlooking the Castro.

    I got so wasted on one screwdriver. I'm not very tolerant... Had a great time at the Lookout, though! This is one of my favorite hangs if I do go drinking... it's very "southern veranda" with it's vie

    It's right there in the name: this bar has a commanding view of a nice busy Castro intersecton. Very fun on big weekend afternoons like Pride, Folsom St., Castro St. Fair, Halloween, etc. Read more

    Watch out for the cover charge. But at least it's spacious and you can easy people people watch from the balcony

    Only good for people watching. When it gets too packed you can't find a spot anywhere, and when it's dead it's boring.

    The "view" is of traffic on Market. Very weho vibe (if that's what you're looking for).
