Whether you’re butch or femme or faux-butch or whatever, there’s something and someone for you at the Lone Star. Nowhere near as massive as the Eagle, but guaranteed to be fun virtually any evening of the week, this mainstay of SoMa biker and leather culture has a pool table, a stable of top-notch DJs, and plenty of occasions where you don’t even realize how chilly it really is because the backyard’s collective body heat takes care of you. It’s a dive, to be sure, and after months of hibernation, SF’s bears and cubs have been pawing to get back in.
