Fodor's Review

A popular institution on the 17th Street strip packs in a mostly male, mostly professional gay crowd. Various nights offer show-tunes singalongs, trivia contests, and the like. For the "Sunday Funday" day-long happy hour or any time the federal government shuts down, expect a festive, wall-to-wall crowd in this narrow, window-lined space.
