This is just up the street from Toronado but it’s one of those places that I’ve never had the inclination to visit since I’m usually sticking to the usual places (Toronado, Magnolia, etc). Divisidero is an interesting walk at night. Lots of bars and restaurants open including a number of cafes. Seems like a friendly area. The Fly bar seems to be popular. It’s more of a lounge really, a noisy busy lounge. The inside is pretty dark and crowded but getting to the bar was not difficult. I was pretty let down when I got there though. Ten taps to choose from but many of them aren’t very exciting. Trumer, Sierra Nevada, Speakeasy, and Paulaner. All good choices but I don’t need to hike an extra mile to get them here. The service was friendly enough but it was a noisy bar so the idea is to get your drink and interact with the other customers. I wasn’t all that interested in spending $7 on a Big Daddy so I opted to scroll past. I didn’t look at the food.

I think there are a few locations now, so I am only rating the one near the Regency Ballroom (aka you should go here before a show). Pretty cool place, plenty of room, good crowd. Beers were +/- $4 12 oz bottles with > a dozen available. Taps were limited, about five, and about $5 a pint. Generous happy hour. Food was a bit hit or miss. pizza >>> nachos. I knocked a few ratings in on my phone so availability didn’t fill in...Rouge, Stone, Deschutes...solid variety, but all stuff you could get in one of the awesome beer stores in town.

There were some creepy paintings surrounding the walls of the large faces of women. ugly. also I think it might be a bad neighborhood. They had like 7 beers on tap I had never heard of and even more in bottles I’d never tried. I didn’t know what to choose! SpeakEasy beers on tap are a prime choice! 20- and 30-somethings shared cigarettes outside. more laid back and attired people - jeans, sweatshirts, sneakers. The bar’s purple and burgundy walls are hung with artwork, including a mural by the back pool table. Ceiling fans, one TV and festive, piñata-style lamps create an eclectic vibe. Service is extremely friendly and told me all you could ever want to know about the beers I was trying. cheap and amazing sangria - good looking pizzas. There’s plenty of seating in the front and back, including pea-green booths and thrift-store movie seats. The front tables look out onto main street. steady after-work crowd for happy hour (Mon-Fri, open to 5:30pm; Sat-Sun, open to 6:30pm). Deals include half-off puffy pizzas and $3 sangria, sake cocktails or draft beer. NOTE: does not serve hard alcohol because it doesn’t have the license. tries to be creative with a ton (like 30) sake cocktails. EX: smoothie-like 50 (sake, pineapple juice, soy milk) ( )
