Fog machines and punk rock bands don’t really go together. But when they’re combined at The Knockout, it creates one of the most fun live-music bars in SF. Even without the music, this place would still be a great dive with well drinks and leather booths. Expect The Knockout to be your last stop of the night because once you walk in, you won’t ever want to leave.
