"Bar-Bar," as the locals call it, is both neighborhood dive bar and destination hip spot. But don't expect to see sawdust on the floor. Large, supper club-style semi-circle booths and wide, comfortable barstools give this joint class. Most regulars seem to prefer their beer served in the can, although there's a healthy selection of drafts available on tap and the well drinks are often stiff. Remember to pump a few tunes through the eclectic jukebox (Pixies, Aerosmith, and Hank Williams in just a few flips!) and shoot a few rounds of pool in the back. Come back often enough and the bartender might start calling you by name.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
