Is it a gay bar? Is it an Irish bar? Well, it’s neither and both: a majority Irish-owned, majority LGBTQ-owned venue named for a gay Irish humanitarian. But more importantly, Casement’s is a proper pub whose kitchen serves fish-and-chips and curry cheese fries en masse, with a curated cocktail list, excellent local beers, and the ability to make frozé feel elegant. It’s also been the hottest thing going in the Mission since shortly before the pandemic, and for good reason. A whiskey club, a back patio that feels like the V.I.P. section at a music festival, and a queer-friendly ambiance all conspire to make Casement’s among the most hospitable bars in the city.
