Of course, the sexiest space in San Francisco sits at the intersection of Folsom and Dore street, each named for an NC-17-rated street fair. Having changed with the times, Powerhouse has morphed from a men-only bar where you would find no small amount of naughtiness to an everyone’s-welcome atmosphere with some nights hosted by drag queens. (It’s still naughty, though.) Pigpen, the outdoor parklet, has kept things going the past few months, but once Pride weekend rolls around, expect the jocks, singlets, and puppy masks to return in force at nights like Stank.
