martinis and more – I've been going to Blondie's for over 7 years and have seen it go froma neighborhood bar with live jazz and blues to a destination bar, crowded with good looking people from the Mission and beyond, especially Thursday through Saturday. It is still a great locals bar, though especially on weeknights or after work. Great variety of martinis and the portions are definately a great value. Also a plus is the outdoor patio for people watching or legal smoking.
Cheezy crowded and bad music – Blondie's is always packed, which never seizes to amaze me. The atmosphere sucks, the music is worse. At least there are other places around.
Blondie's Rocks – Whenever I head to Blondie's I always know I'm in for a great night. 3 for 1 Martini's, a great crowd, great music - not much more to ask for! The Sunday BBQ is also awesome!!! Free pool and food, and $1 pints- can't beat it anywhere else in the city.
great bar! – BLONDIE'S OUTDOOR PATIO IS BEST!!! I love to go to Blondie's Bar on Sunday afternoons and sit on the front patio. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the bartender is very pleasant and makes great cocktails. Lately I have stayed for the BBQ, which seems to be a family affair; Lots of barstaff, their family, and Blondie's regulars just having fun. Good music, too!
the youngest knows........ – Considering I spent a full month in San Francisco and hung out at the bar quite a bit, IT'S AWESOME<~~~* that's for two hot bartenders, the blonde and the brunette. Yes, blondie did start bar dance wayyyyy before that lame bar movie came out, Coyote Ugly.
I'd have to say that Terri is a great security guard just don't give Al a hard time. The bar backs are even cool enough to chill and talk to, just once and a while though. haha. Overall Blondie's is one in a million kind of bars.
Great Martini – The Martini's are really tasty, and you get a lot of drink for your money. The best part is the flavored olives. I recomend the blue cheese stuffed olives in a filthy martini.
Staff Attitude Kills It – Overpriced martinis, and bouncers who think they own the world. I saw about six different people get aggressively approached by the staff - are these guys on steroids or just plain annoying? This place is on the fast track to becoming the worst joint in the district.
Buyer beware, friends. You're better off at other places in the mission. Disbelieve at your own risk.
Mission resident knows... – I live in the Mission, have enjoyed blondies every single time and have never had a negative experience there- The staff has always been pleasant, entertaining, and the bartenders make great drinks. As for the crowd? I have met some really interesting people there. It can get a little crazy on the week-ends, but name one bar/club/restaurant in the city that isn't crowded! If you are looking for no crowds, try going during the week days, go to Burlingame to some obscure bar where there is no atmosphere, or stay at home with yourself and a bottle! If you don't like this place? don't go! That will just make more room for those of us who do like it!
