  1. F Fernanfo
    Cruising bar????

    “Don't waist your time and money. I have never been in a place which is promoted as cruising bar, and where nudity is prohibited and there is no place to play. Well, San Francisco is in general not a gay Mekka anymore.“

  2. A A
    Quick visit

    “This place felt a bit claustrophobic and small. Good prices for beer. No action can be found here as it appears to be a bar/club, not cruising.“
