Pop's is a dive bar The Mission that's got cheap booze and an awesome crowd.
High Tide is a Geary dive that's got a jukebox, pool table, and recommended low-cost liquor drinks.
The Page has got pool tables, a jukebox, and cheap booze -- what more could you want from a Lower Haight dive?
Chinatown surprisingly houses some of our favorite dive bars in the city and Buddha is one of the diviest (and best). It’s cash-only, has a bathroom you can only access after being buzzed in by the bartender, and oh yeah, the bartender… he’ll play you a game of dice for a beer (lose and you buy him/you a beer, win and he buys you/him a beer). But it’ll have to be before 8pm so he can drive home after work. Yeah, it’s that kind of place.
Anytime is cocktail time at Doc's Clock, a gem of a dive bar in the Mission. Shuffleboard courts, arcade games, and jukebox tunes round out the kitschy vibe, while cheap well drinks and $2 beers keep you there all night long.
Don’t leave this tiny, narrow Chinatown dive until you’ve gotten bartender-legend (and owner) Mama Candy to pour you Chinese whiskey while you you sip on cheap bottles of domestic beer and have worked up the nerve to sing at least one power ballad on the karaoke machine and eaten your way through at least a few bowls of the free spiced peanuts. If you stay late enough, you may even get the ultimate reward: watching Mama Candy herself grab the mic for some Chinese karaoke.
Mr. Bing's is a Chinatown jukebox haven with strong drinks and a rowdy crowd.
