The area
Neighbourhood: Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

Dive Bar at its best
Aug 2015 • Couples
This is the ultimate dive bar complete with torn bar stools, random knick knacks, no kitchen, & weird looking regulars. All these things are what makes this place great. One of the regular patrons picked some awesome soul music on the jukebox which made for a nice relaxed atmosphere. The owner, Frank is way cool & personable. Can't wait to go back.

Cool place if you have nothing to lose
Strong, cheap drinks. A great place to visit if you have no valuables. Make sure you wear closed toed shoes, as if you get drunk and stumble into the street you don't want to stub your toe on a needle!

Caught that Tramp of A Girlfriend 'Two Timing' you AGAIN? Take her to the World's Greatest Break Up Dive (21 Club)
Jan 2014 • Couples
We've all GONE THROUGH IT. The Private Detectives, The Sleezy Photographs, The sleepless nights. Well, now that you just: (a) Won the Lottery (b) Launched that new IPO (c) Signed on to Quaterback for the Oakland Raiders (There goes YOUR CAREER in the NFL, buddy), you've got to loose some excess weight and CUT SOME (emotional) BAGGAGE.

Where do you go for your 'BIG TALK'? A Nice place because, well, you owe her that? No, she's going to be upset, you've got a reputation to protect and when she finds out your'e leaving her at the docks as your ship has just sailed in...Well, the Chinese Ambassador will call Pres. Obama accusing him of violating the Salt Treaty ('above ground' Nuclear testing')!!! Don't take my word for it, let a woman explain it to you: Uhh, Ms. Alanis Morrissette, Remember your song 'You Oughta Know'; My friend here, has totally forgot the words...

THE MEET UP: You're going to tell her to meet you at the 21 Club on 98 TURK Street. Ask her if she knows where Nordstrom is, The one DownTown, not the one near the college on 19th Street. The 21 Club is just footsteps from Nordstroms but worlds apart, as they say.
Just sprung from San Quentin, State Prison? Man needs a drink, RIGHT? A R-E-A-L drink, not that Pruno stuff they make in H Block or the Hand alcohol rub ya'll be smuggling out of the MVB building---Dah 'Real Deal', store bought Whiskey stuff!!!

Why do I LOVE 21 Club? First, its LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, Next, its the people and its 40's Film Noir 'Dive Ambiance'. Your EX Girl Friend goes off in the 21 Club, who is going to shame you? Drunkards? Bikers? Ex Cons? Street People? You take her to McDonalds, everyone will point & stare at you when she dumps her milkshake all over your head. At the 21 Club, the patrons KNOW BETTER NOT TO STAIR AT ANYONE no matter WHAT she does to you---'Powder River; Let er Buck!!!"

Play with her. Tell her, her mother was right about you---that she always was 'too good for you' and that she can do better. Hey, let bygones be bygones. Offer to fix her up with a replacement boyfriend with a simple show of hands!!! Or she can always go back to the guy she was cheating with on you; Whatever. Afterwards, you can walk to Nordstrom, and pick out a really nice suit because, well, you on the market again, you sligh old dog...

FYI, Notice that I've checked off 'STROLLER' Parking because, seeing this is in the heart of the Tenderloin (near Geary) there are STROLLERs Galore....The two legged kind, not the four wheeled kind. Know what I'm sayin'?
