5 out of 5 stars

A cowboy-themed dive with a dance floor.

One of the few San Francisco gay bars outside of the Castro or SoMa neighborhoods, the Cinch is equal parts dive bar and dance club. Dark even in the middle of the day, this cowboy themed spot is hung with erotic art and a mirror over the urinals that allows your own junk (and that of your urinating neighbors) to make its own appearance on the walls. Though it’s a little rough around the edges, the Cinch is as friendly as they come with a pool table and patio, all night happy hour on Mondays and Friday night drag shows.
