The Gold Cane Cocktail Lounge

Recalling the true definition of the term “no frills,” the Golden Cane has been a consistent standby for the Haight contingent for decades. Besides the odd tourist, it’s a fairly local crowd, which isn’t to say the scene is sleepy; Friday and Saturday nights see a fair number of outsiders looking for a cheap drink and a good time. A lively back porch is a crowd favorite, while a pool table and a few arcade games top off the decor, which has remained the same since the ‘70s.

When accounting for your drinks, and if you should have another, take into account that The Gold Cane pours on the heavier side.
