Moby Dick

The Castro's neighborhood bar, Moby Dick looks just as it has since the 1980s. Two walls of windows open to the street, flooding the place with sun by day, and a giant fish tank behind the bar provides a nighttime focal point for shy guys who don't like eye contact. But it's not a heavy cruise bar: This is where you come when you want to hang with your buds in a no-pressure environment. Up the steps at the rear of the bar, there's an always-busy pool table and four well-maintained pinball machines that provide distraction when conversation lags. Daily drinks specials and kindly bartenders keep the place busy every night.
