Self-styled as “San Francisco’s cruise bar,” the Powerhouse is the place to be if you’re looking to pick-up. Whether for its notorious back patio where poppers and cigarettes get equal attention or its crowd, which would prefer to shmooze than dance (despite the DJ spinning house most nights), this is arguably the most popular gay bar in San Francisco. Several nights a week men compete to win lube, drinks and cash like at Thursday’s underwear and gear night’s junk in your trunk contest. Leave your girlfriends at home; this spot is where the boys go to play.
