A no-pressure Castro gay bar with nightly drink specials.

This neighborhood spot, with its walls of windows that open wide to the street on sunny days, hasn’t changed much since first opening in the 1980s. Nightly drink specials make it a local favorite but not as a cruise bar - Moby Dick is where you go to have a couple drinks with your crew in a no-pressure environment. Behind the bar a giant fish tank offers a little something to focus on during lulls in conversation and, up the steps at the rear, a pool table and pinball machines allow for a little friendly competition.
