Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

An iconic LGBTQ cocktail bar at the heart of the Castro.

Twin Peaks Tavern holds the most iconic spot in the Castro, at the corner of the Jane Warner Plaza just beyond the shadow of a giant rainbow flag and a few doors down from the famed Castro Theater. Almost every LGBTQ+ visitor to San Francisco will roll into this classic tavern at some point, drawn like martini-chasing moths to its rainbow-colored lights. Though it came very close to closing over the last year, a successful fundraising campaign has helped the Tavern keep its doors open.
