Friends convene at this simple Mission bar and sip super-strong cocktails.. The Scene This is not a club, nor is it filled with Latin Americans. It's a simple space--a large, rectangular room with a wood bar and places to sit. It's filled with 1950s-era Formica and chrome tables and a popular front pool table. The back wall is decorated with kitsch collections like cuckoo clocks, mailboxes and piñatas, but most of this high-ceilinged space is unadorned.
The Draw The lack of context doesn't deter indie-rock hipsters from gathering here in groups. The crowd comes and goes throughout the night, so it is possible to land table seating. The few singles--this is no pickup scene--can stick it out at the barstools, while lucky couples may be able to score one of the coveted front booths that offer prime people-watching on busy 22nd Street.
