John Murio's Trophy Room
Contrary to what its sporty moniker may suggest, athletics is not the favorite subject of conversation here. The two largest contingents of customers are pool players and Haight-Ashbury local 'alternatives', from hippies to rockabillies. The jukebox is well-stocked with punk, metal, classic country & crooners, and misc. alternative. Pool, pinball, and video games provide indoor entertainment. Only cash is accepted.
The quintessential neighborhood bar featuring a lot of warm wood in the decor, friendly locals, a couple of pool tables and Nick, the greatest bartender this side of the Atlantic. A great place for cold beer and conversation. I particularly loved the Jello shots. Tilt your head back to take a look at the caricatures on the ceiling, but don't lean back too far on your bar stool, especially if you've had one of Nick's world-famous shots.
