Best Punk Rock Jukebox San Francisco 2011 - Molotov's



582 Haight

San Francisco, CA 94117


Map & Details>>

Let's just lay it out, shall we? Gang of Four, the Specials, the Dead Boys, Fugazi, Motorhead, the GZA, Joy Division, Howlin' Wolf, the Pogues, Hank Williams Sr., the Stooges, Stiff Little Fingers, the Descendents, Grimple, and way, way more? With its low-key vibe, cheap booze, and dingy interior, Molotov's in the Lower Haight is already the city's go-to punk bar. Thankfully, it has one of the hood's last real jukeboxes — and one filled with music to match its leather-and-spiky-hair crowd. Trust us: On a blustery Wednesday night, nothing beats a little "Sonic Reducer" with your $5 PBR and shot of whiskey. And after that round, there's plenty of music here to keep you drinking hard.

Yeah, too bad Molotov's is a blight on the lower haight neighborhood, with countless rude "punks" chainsmoking on the sidewalk 24-7. My family crosses the street to avoid that obnoxious throng.

Jukebox aside, I pray for the day Molotovs is Molotov'ed!!!
