Time Out says
Pop’s Bar has had a number of different owners over the years, but remains a neighborhood institution. A recent remodel by the team behind Madrone tidied the place up without erasing its dive bar character. With friendly bartenders, a pool table and a new, moderately chichi cocktail program, it can take you from post-brunch day drinking to last call dance party without a hitch. Regularly scheduled live music, DJs and a quiz night guarantee a crowd every night of the week.
