Some people complain that the Castro has commercialized and trendy. If so, then Pilsner Inn is one of the last authentic Castro establishments. Unpretentious and down to earth, this is a good bar to meet old friends or to find some new ones. The atmosphere is game-oriented, with pool, darts, and a smoking patio. Microbrew fans will enjoy the glycol beer system, consisting of 15 different home-made draft varieties.

This Castro gay bar has a popular patio and games galore. – In Short
The spacious, dim interior features green tiles on the ceiling and red tiles on the floor. A mural of penguins is painted above the bar; sports trophies and SF memorabilia adorn the walls. The back patio, with its large garden and shadowy nooks, is where most of the 30-something crowd congregates. Seating is scarce but can be found in stools along the bar and benches in the patio, where smoking is allowed.

Queer "Cheers"... – Very friendly relaxed atmosphere. Great music from a J-Box with everything under the sun. Nice to just chill with a few friends and have a good time.

Not just cute bartenders – A local watering hole that makes you feel welcome. Great bartenders, fun crowd and the one of the best patios in the city.

It's My Hang... – What can I say, it's where my day begins and ends, where I catch up with all my friends, where I practice my back bends. I don't mind that the Queer as Folk crowd comes in strong on Fridays -- always good to check out the newbies. Still the most comfertable place in the city i think...

Great neighborhood bar – Sure, the place has changed over the years. Sure, it's a little more "trendy." But the basic appeal is still there ... a fun, casual atmosphere with a hot crowd. Sure, it gets a little too smokey in the patio area, but you can't beat the mix of guys and some gals who come here. You've got your Castro boys, your alt- Mission types, etc. In addition, Pilsner's got the best jukebox in town. Great rock classics, from the Rolling Stones to David Bowie. Also, if you love pool, this is a fun place to play-- the regulars at the table love new competition. Be forwarned, the place is packed to the gils on Friday and Saturday nights.

laid-back, relaxed, great patio – Since you aren't really allowed to smoke in any enclosed public spaces in SF, it's nice to see a casual bar with a large patio for the nicotine-inclined. The bartenders are friendly and the crowd is relaxed. This is a fine place to spend an evening.
