Cozy neighborhood bat

This bar is always busy with a nice mix of locals and tourists. They usually run old movies on the TV sets - the Maltese falcon and similar.

We were denied access at the entrance, without any explanation.. We asked the reason for rejection, and this was the reply: "Because I say so". Very rude and arrogant.

Located at the corner of Post and Powell this is a terrific place to pop in for a drink and people watch!
