I LOVE MARLENA'S

I first met Marlena back in June 1997. The bar has been through some changes. For a while there were some bartenders that were just rude and were not the best fit. Luckily the staff they have now is wonderful. There's TJ, Bradley, Elmer, Glenn, Curtis, Jonathan & Marlena herself. The Hayes Valley Follies Show every Saturday is a true gem. And when it comes to charity fundraising no one has this bar beat...f... view more

Its got the Scottish vote - but can anyone help me track my old buddy?!

Hey all,\r \r I lived in San Fran from 1995-1996 and was lucky enough to make friends with Cockatelia, Lycra, Gilda and Veronda. \r \r These ladies showed me an absolutely wonderful time and gave me memories of a lifetime. \r \r One of which was spending 4 hours in the basement of Marlena's dragging me up for halloween 1995 - good God I didnt know how much effort went into looking as good as they do!\r \r Th... view more

A different take

First after reading a review that was all in caps without a persons name even attached, shows very poor ethics as well as some hatred for the place. Talking about lies, the previous review was not only hateful, but indicates that someone has true anger not only at Marlena (Garry) but at the place in general.\r \r To clear some things up, some bartenders may not be the best (like any bar) but they for sure are not... view more

Rudest Bartender Ever

We live in the neighborhood, and decided to take our friends to marlena's after dinner on Saturday. We ordered our drinks and tipped well and watched the tail end of the drag show, which is always great fun. No less than 5 minutes after finishing our drinks, the bartender screamed at us to ""buy another round or get the f#@k out of there. There was no signage indicating a two drink minimum, and we weren't told thi... view more

TONS OF FUN!!!

I took my mom here for her 60th birthday, and everyone treated her like a queen (no punt intended)!!! The barstaff was wonderfull, the other customers were also a very friendly and diverse crowd. I totally recommend coming here, especially if you're an out of towner like we are.

Uptight service

Looked great from the outside, and we were psyched about the pool table.\r However, the bartender scolded us not once but multiple times for our misdemeanors. Such as, we moved the bar stools! We all had to have a drink in hand at every moment while in the bar! \r So, not a low-key place to just hang out when the service has its business rules that must be upheld at all times.\r We were so put off that we left o... view more

If you like Drag!

Even if you don't like drag...this place is a great neightborhood bar. The local ISE Chapter likes to call this place HOME! If you are lucky enough to catch Marlena, when she's there, Say a big HELLOOOOOO!

great after-work spot

I've never been here for the drag shows, but, the mellow crowd and friendly service are soothing after 5pm. Marlena's has a nice neighborhood bar feel, and, the adjacent patio is smoker-friendly.
