Success! Thanks for posting your review of Butter. You’ve done the world some good today.

$2 Jello Shots… um hi!

Butter is a wonderful hole-in-the-wall bar that you probably wouldn’t feel compelled to go in if you were just walking by, however, I suggest a visit. It’s always full of people ready for a good time, there’s great music and $2 Jello Shots. While the rest of their drinks aren’t much of a bargain, they are no more expensive than any other bar in San Francisco and with the $2 Jello shots you’re sure to drink less of ... view more

Fun Spot!

Great, non-pretentious place to have a drink, dance and enjoy the DJ! Check it out! This place is designed to look like a trailer, I love it. It reminds me of a bar that I used to love in NYC.

interesting spot

I've only been here twice but had fun each time. It's a very unique place with a trailer trash vibe. Very funny drink specials and snacks. Great loud music, sometimes a band is around or a live guitar player jumps up on the bar to rock out. Never too crowded. Will definitely be returning, got a nice laidback feel to it.

fun Music, Cool drinks

fun place to go when your hanging out in the Mission. Cant go to many bars in town and get a 22 in a Brown Bag. Then there is the upstairs that is like a Frat house with Video games and big rooms. 2 Thumbs up and i will probably go back again.

Too funny...

This place is definitely unique. I've been here a couple of times. Love the music, and the drinks are pretty good. They mix two of my favorite ingredients together: tang and vodka = tangini!! You have to have one. The bartenders are pretty nice, hey when I came up to order drinks they even gave me a lollipop and a wife-beater t that said ""butter"" on it. I had to ask for another one since my friend had tried ... view more

Breath of Fresh Air

Butter is certainly not the place for everyone. If you are the sort that needs overpriced drinks and the vacant stares of ""pretty"" people to validate your existence, stay in the Marina! If you like great music, stiff drinks, and tater tots go to Butter. The bartenders are great and the atmosphere is unique. They serve Hi-Life quarts in paper bags and jello shots! Heaven! The music can be a little loud but after a ... view more

No Good

The city search write up on this place is very old. The hey day of this place must have been during the dot com. There was nobody in this place besides our group, the bar tender and the creepy guy drinking by himself at the bar. We went for the Wednesday night drag show. Upon arriving we learned this event has not been happening for over a year. The jello shots are now $2. This place is lame. I would never go back!

Great Change of Pace in SOMA!

When you think SOMA you usually think of crowded same old, trendy dance clubs...this is SO different! They have an awesome theme where you can be as silly as you want while having a great time. The drinks are stiff and cheap, the atmosphere is friendly and upbeat (not too perky). The line for the bathroom was a little long, but I say it's worth checking out, try something new!
