Where else but the Castro District can you party like it’s Saturday on a Monday? If you want to party hard ‘til 2am every night of the week, QBar is where you need to be.
QBar has a plethora of events happening Monday through Sunday, including: “Wanted,” an indie rock DJ dance party; “13 Licks,” a lezzie-tastic ladies dance party; “Booty Call Wednesdays” with a Hot Go Go’s photo shoot and plenty of drink specials; “Throwback Thursdays,” where you can dance to old-school music while Instagram-ing your #tbt pictures; and “Hard,” the sweatiest electro dance party this side of the Pride Flag. Did I mention that these are just the weekday events?
QBar sure does “cram a lot of gay into a short weekend.” If you’ve still got it in you, make way for QBar Saturdays. Not only do you get a wicked deal on beer from 2pm-9pm ($10 buckets of 6 bottles and $10 microbrew pitchers) — when 9 o’clock strikes, the electro-house dance party with DJ Stanley Frank begins.
The next day (when you’ll barely be able to stand from all the fierce dance moves performed the night before), you can head back to QBar for some more adventure. Join DJ Chelsea Starr and dance the Sunday away enjoying $3 Skyy vodka infusions!
Speaking of beverages, you can get creatively-crafted drinks like “The Anderson Cooper,” with Square One Basil, Lillet, fresh blackberries, fresh lemon, basil and ginger beer, and “The Juanita More!” with Jameson, fresh blackberries, bitters, fresh lemon and ginger beer. Bottoms up!
Yelpers can’t say enough about the festivities at QBar: “Strong $2 drinks, friendly bartenders, inevitable new friendships, loud non-stop dance music,” said Ally W. from San Jose, CA. “My hump day treat. Booty Call Wednesdays at Qbar has been dominating Wednesday nights in the Castro for a while now! Cheap drinks, good crowd, [and] even better music...it's hard to beat, especially for a Wednesday,” said Chris W. from Napa, CA. “Oh and if you're having a good time, there will be photographic evidence of it the next day because of their themed photo booth each night.”
So next time you’re bored on, well, any night of any day, head on over to QBar for some unforgettable good times!
