After I got past the fact that this bar smells of malt vinegar, I had a really great time!

I went to the Castle for TenderNights (Loiners with Drinks) to meet some neighbors as I live near the TL. It was definitely a divey bar, not some place I'd choose to use the restroom, but it was clean enough that I didn't feel dirty inside or walking out.

They had special drinks for the Tenderloin event -- they were very reasonably priced and equivalently strong. The atmosphere was very fun. It drew in a good crowd (I'm not sure if I can credit the TenderNights group for that, but I really enjoyed it).

Great TL experience!

Gotta tell you, the service was horrible. Sat at the bar for close to 10 minutes before getting a drink and the place was pretty empty. Next round, we were at a table. Hoping that the waitress who kept walking back and forth would stop. Nope, didn't happen. From then on, just walked directly to the bar. For some reason, and I don't think it was because I was drunker, the bartender served faster as the place got busier. Fairly amazed that the group got sloshed with such slow service...

If you are thinking that San Francisco has few places to get Hagis then go to Burns Night in Febuary at the Edinburgh Castle. Good selection of beer and who does not love fish and chips?

At Edinburgh Castle, the clientele is all twenty-something with the occasional old-timer hanging out at the barstool. Owners here are very friendly, and the fish and chips, served in wrapped newspaper and crisped to perfection, is a reason to go to the Tenderloin. Also, bands play here frequently. Put that again, frequently good bands play here frequently.

Split into three levels with a balcony, roomy booths and an alluring, darkened, edgy-cool atmosphere (author Irvine Welsh is a favorite here), this Scottish pub is a hot-spot for beer lovers, writers, musicians and alternative folk from…
