Historic anyway ....

I'm pretty sure this is the oldest continuously operated gay bar in the US. Others get "discovered" by the general public and well..... there goes the neighborhood.

Nice place to spend an afternoon just hanging out.

In Response to the Last Review

Something has to be said about the last guy's comment on the bartender being from Iran. I have to assume that the only reason you mentioned that with such a negative connotation stems from a culturally insensitive space and it is not welcome! Take some time to read about our multicultural America with maybe A Different Mirror by Ronald Takaki or Thinking Class by Joanna Kadi and hopefully you will learn to appreciate our diverse community that, if learned a little bit about, might help you to change your negative feelings.

If you have nothing else to do...

Hop over to the White Horse...if you have no other options. Its a great place to grab a drink and chill in a dark corner, but not much else. The dance floor is sparsely occupied by a few weirdos and drama queens and there are never that many people in the bar. If you can, go to the city. If not, go to the White Horse.

happy hour is the best time

aside from karoake on tuesday nights...hands down the best night of the week at the horse. the music is PATHETIC on dancing nights...some of the most irritating crap you ever heard. it actually produces the opposite effect of what dance music is supposed to do: it keeps people off the dancefloor. the decor is atrocious and tacky, which should permanently eliminate the myth that gay men have good taste. on the plus side, the regulars are pretty friendly and interesting, and the patio is great (but even that decor is tacky(=), and if they ever let anyone play the jukebox, there is some decent music in there. the best bartender is charlie, who makes a mean bloody mary. the others are mediocre, at best.

Tragic!

It is sad that this is ""the most popular"" gay bar in the East Bay. I use to frequent the White Horse on the weekends and it was usually crowded and fun and you would bump into someone you knew. Since the new management, the old time bartenders are gone and replaced with less friendly staff who have obviously been told not to pour such a strong drink. The glass sizes shrank and the prices went up. And the people stopped coming. What happened to the place you could go to meet friends, get a stiff drink and meet new people. It is obvious the main point of this place is to make money off its patrons. Ironically, I think they drove most of their most frequent patrons away. Go to SF for a better time. Though not as convenient, it sure is a lot more fun!
