Caged red safety lights dangle from the ceiling at this black-box bar, illuminating gym-fit middle-aged men with scruff, and the daddy-chasers who love them. Unlike most other Castro bars, which play to kids in their twenties, 440 solidly remains a men's bar, the classic cruise joint. On Mondays, everyone strips to their skivvies for Underwear Night. Tuesdays bring $2 beers. Go-go boys dance Wednesday through Friday nights, while DJs spin house, electronica and pop. Expect to pack shoulder to shoulder on weekends, but drink specials keep the crowd loose, lubed and ready.
