540 Club

Bar in Golden Gate Park & the Avenues

Bank on bargain booze in this converted savings-and-loan office – just look for the neon-pink elephant over the archway. Come for weekday happy hours (noon to 7pm), debauched Sunday trivia nights, DJs every Friday and infamous punk karaoke. Loosen up for darts and pool with more than a dozen beers on tap. Free wi-fi; dog friendly; cash only.
