Tips from the Net @ The Willows

Surprisingly best spot for Pokemon go legendary raid. You can see this place is popular among locals. Lots of San Francisco natives stop by. Constantly GooglePlace - August 2017

It's not exactly a dive bar... They have classy cocktails, and a whole room dedicated to craft beer. But they also have three pinball machines, which are divey standard issue. So, perhaps you'll just need to visit and make up your own mind! The menu is fun and full of comfort/bar food. Only... It's way better than bar food anywhere else. They also do brunch on the weekends, which is pretty good! The crowe varies by time of day AND days of the week. The cocktail bar is usually full of regulars at any time, with the dining area being a mix of hipsters, tech bros and sometimes tourists! I've never seen it get too rowdy, but it does get super loud on Wednesday nights because they do trivia. They have DJs on Friday and Saturday nights, too. My favorite thing about The Willows is that it is off the beaten path (by only a block) from the main drag (no pun intended) of 11th street - Where one will find DNA Lounge, Butter, Halcyon, The Oasis and several other night clubs/bars in the span of a few blocks. It's a great escape if that's not your scene, but you need to stay in the vicinity until your 18 year old niece is done dancing at DNA or whatever. GooglePlace - July 2017

Important: If you decide to use the jukebox, you have to ask the bartender to switch the input! I really like this place. It's one of my preferred bars. It doesn't feel dank or dirty, and there's adequate room to stand or sit (as long as you arrive later when it clears out). The drink selection isn't bad. Don't have any favorite cocktails or foods. Nothing is amazing, but everything is pretty good. GooglePlace - July 2017

Decent bar food, a nice rotating beer selection, and a lively happy hour crowd. They have a pool table and some pinball machines too. Not really a cocktail bar though they have a full bar. GooglePlace - June 2017
