Pilsner Inn – Castro
Maybe I’m just out of the loop, but I feel like Pilsner Inn is a hidden gem of the Castro. It’s easy to walk right past the Church Street entrance, and it’s even easier to miss the bar’s adorable back Patio. In addition to the patio, Pilsner Inn has some of the coldest beer in town, making it a great bar for those rare warm evenings.
Pilsner Inn supports several local sports teams, which may explain why the bar is packed with hot beefy men in casual jeans and t-shirts. If you can squeeze into a spot by the window, there is also a great view of Church Street, perfect for people watching. The crowd is amiable and the drinks are strong; Pilsner Inn is great escape from the bright lights and pounding music of Castro Street.
