My girlfriend and I went here earlier this month and expected the place to be much bigger- it was just a small bar, pool table and a few seats. There was a jukebox into which I put a dollar only to discover it wasn't responding. I asked the lady behind the bar if she would sort it out for me but she didn't- very unhelpful. I didn't think much of this place and it was difficult to get to.
sweet place. love the decor, great priced drinks, nice bartender with a great eye for fasion. the jukebox rocked me world and there were even weights to build your biceps when waiting for the bathroom (okay, it was just a poney keg, but i got a work out). you may be wondering why one would kick it in the corner and lift a keg. well, i will tell you. THE GIRLS AT THIS BAR ARE THE MOST BAAARF NASTY DISGUSTING CREATURES ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH!!!! (unless of course you like anorexic coke heads with hair matted to their heads and dirty wife beaters with holes and sweat stains. okay, in the bars defense there was some diversity. there was also the fat old biker dyykes with their big black leather jackets and buzz cuts. hmmm, im being really hard on this place. every so often you will come across a hot girl, but wait that girl is me! and no, i dont go here very often...so yes, basically this place sux...unless you happen to go when im there...k, im done
I went on a Thursday during happy hour in mid Feb. Whe I arrived there was one patron in the bar and the bartender was playing a game on the bartop system. When she finished her game she finally asked what I wanted. A few minutes later her friends came so she went outside with them without seeing if we needed anything first. No one else arrived. the hour I was there and the service was sub-par
Full of girls of all types. Cheap drinks, lots of flirting. 20 something crowd, felt a little ancient at first. Plenty of people to make me feel welcome. Not bothered by the gawkers, men have to be escorted to enter. Great place to burn some calories and work up a sweat.
If neither, you're probably SOL as far as meeing other women. The butch/femme scene must have started in this bar. You can find your fair share of mullets here, surprising for SF. Crowd is very reserved and suspisoucs, slightly curious at the most. Drinks are cheap and the usual fair is offered. Sometimes they offer great drink specials, you can get canned beer for a buck. I guess service depends on the bartender, but its usually good considering how crowded the place usually is. The bar itself is pretty relaxed and cruisy. Neighboorhood is mixed so take a cab at night.
Well, one could argue that it is in fact the ONLY chick bar in SF sans rotating venues. It's nice and quaint and warm with red walls and friendly barmaids. I've heard it referred to it as ""Home of the Homely"", so if your aesthetic tastes run towards shallow and you're looking for love, this might not be the place. But if you just want a beer with good friends in the only lesbetian bar in SF, then hey, this is the place!!!
On the trip to the Motherland from the world of LA, my friend took me and my S.O. here. Lemme just say, no matter how cool and hip we think we are in LA LA Land, we're obviously not cool enough to have a place like this. The crowd is 100% real with no attitude. That Saturday night was standing room only, trust me though, you won't mind. The drinks were about medium cost but the ambiance is absolutely priceless.
I've always had fun at the Lexington. It's a chill little spot. The bartenders have always been nice to me. Generally, people return the vibe you give out...so, maybe the problem's not really the bartenders but some of the reviewers... All in all, it's not a meat-market; it is, however, a great place to start an evening with friends.
