Gay in The Castro & Noe Valley

The last Castro bar to open at 6am, Mix is a must on a pub crawl. The low-ceilinged pool and bar area is appealing, but the open-roofed smokers patio has a better vibe. Expect gal-next-door lesbians, 20-something gay boys, trans pals and the odd stumbling drag queen. Great drink specials keep everyone happy.
