Lonely Planet review for Blackbird
The Castro's lounge-bar draws a mix of guys in tight T-shirts and their gal-pals. The look is sleek and clean, but not overstyled. We dig the macabre news clippings on the walls, the cocktails are strong, and there's a good selection of wines and craft beers by the glass. Bartenders provide eye candy. Ideal spot to begin a Castro pub crawl, but it gets packed weekends.
