    A refreshing spot with character in an increasingly homogenous part of town. No pretense, good liquor selection, and a cool second floor to watch the crowd below.

    Love the bartenders here; generous pours and always a nice spot to stop by for the perfect sazerac. Cash only. Try the cucumber-basil martini as well!

    An awesome bar located on top of the Stockton Street Tunnel, serving cheap drinks (cash only) and is generally packed after-work and on the weekends.

    Heavy pours, good happy hour, comfortable, cozy atmosphere that can turn live at the drop of a hat.

    Pretty cool bar with 9% beer. Don't miss the possibly unique scale ATM in America.

    My most frequented bar. Interesting location, quirky interior. What's not to love?

    Quintessential San Francisco spot: located above an iconic massage parlor/brothel, at the bottom of a huge hill, and way cooler inside than the outside would ever promise.

    I like the atmosphere. It's a little bit to loud for a normal Conversation

    It is actually on the tunnel top. Nice bar, it is not overcrowded, nice music and prices.

    Cash only is kind of annoying, but it's a great atmosphere and the fresh fruit used in mixers is fantastic.

    Give the Full Boar a try on tap. It's only $4 and is very tasty. Slightly hoppy at first with a great aftertaste. 7.4% abv, so drink responsibly!

    This place is a crazy mix of hipsters, bar rats, and neighborhood locals. Cash only bar and some seriously loud music.

    Cash only. Slightly annoying, but I suppose to be expected from a "dive bar."

    Tunnel top is wack. Too much Pop music and the crowd is lame, hipster types.
