Butter makes trailer parks sexy! Whether it's the $2 jello shots, the quirky-named cocktails, the bumpin' beats, or the ladies dancing on the bartops, you're bound to have a sloshing good time. For those looking to flex their vocal scales and arpeggios, Sunday is karaoke night. Be sure to bring cash!
Great Change of Pace in SOMA! – When you think SOMA you usually think of crowded same old, trendy dance clubs...this is SO different! They have an awesome theme where you can be as silly as you want while having a great time. The drinks are stiff and cheap, the atmosphere is friendly and upbeat (not too perky). The line for the bathroom was a little long, but I say it's worth checking out, try something new!
Smooth as butta... – Went to check out this place out of curiosity before hitting up some clubs in SOMA. Bartenders were nice, quick service. Drinks weren't expensive. Nice vibe and interesting theme. Good but loud music so you can't really enjoy a conversation with whomever you're with. Crowd is mainly 25+ and a good mix of men and women. They also serve "food", but I didn't have a chance to try them out. Great place to go get some drinks before you head down to clubs around the area to go dancing.
great bar – LOVE the concept. Oliver (bartender) is awesome-quick drinks-great memory for the regulars. Drinks are cheap. The food is good-its white castle burgers microwaved & kraft easy mac! Ingenious. Like that they have different promoters on different nights. Like the music. Frank at the door is good too! Personable-good memory. When you live in the area and are surrounded by bars that try to hard-velvet rope and all...please!!!, not in this economy. Butter is a refreshing change of pace. It's fun, good crowd watching.
hope you dont need to go to the bathroom – Great DJs, fun theme, friendly crowd for sure. I liked everything except the fact that there's not much room to move, much less dance. And you better have a gigantic bladder to hold your drinks because there's only a couple toilets in the whole place.
too trendy – This place was ultra trendy and too bright. Nothing really original.
none better than butter – love love love this place!!!
bartenders are fast, drinks are stiff, eats are cheap. the only thing i might make a comment on is that though i have danced here, it's not really a dancing place.
Gay/Lesbian Bar? – Am I missing something here? Been to Butter on numerous occasions from a Wednesday night through Saturday night and have not noticed it to be a dominantly gay/lesbian joint. Sometime you have to wonder about the validity of Citysearch.
Straight Butter Baby – Butter is a cool place to start any evening in SOMA. The crowd is among the most hip in the City. The atmosphere of Butter is a little off beat and super fun. You can buy cans of Meister Brau or Pabst Blue Ribbon at the bar, and that is both cool and genius marketing in that you end up shelling out four bucks for a beer you'd never buy at Safeway just because your Dad or Grandpa used to drink it. So make sure you bring your bread and get buttered!
Fun Scene – Who knew you could find a white 'n trashy bar in the Bay Area? Hipsters sip on stiff cocktails and jam to solid DJs. It can get pretty crowded, and ordering a drink sometimes requires serious patience. Still, the bar's novelty far-outweighs the annoyances. Where else could you find a sassy cocktail waitress who serves tater tots on a sliver platter?
