People who work there a little haters and need to mind their own business . If someone is buying me drinks you need to teach your bartenders to keep their opinions to their selves.Joe the bartender is old and needs to retire and pour a regular shot ! You are old retire already!!! Treston the bar back is very rude and has an attitude problem. I came in an asked why he was taking the stools and he said “cause I can and I feel like it bitch” he than shoved me hard when I was getting up to move from the bar . Every time I come in he always talks disrespectful and rude to my boyfriend and I.

Beaux has changed post pandemic and sadly is one of handful of gay bars that still left in the Castro . The space and music make a good night out mostly on weekends. It has relied on themed nights and drag show days/nights to stay alive financially - but at a cost - as it has lost its local customers and as a result, service has suffered with ever changing & quality of staff. As new gay bars open this year, it should help revive the gay scene with more choices.

Good place to gather with friends for a night out, also the best place to catch performances and the drink prices are fair. The music is always good.

Grab yourself a beverage then go out and get dancing. Upstairs bar had friendly quick service. Security was right on top of some sloppy nonsense. We all had a great time Saturday night.

Fun experience but If you want food don't leave to late because it's not posted anywhere out front or on their website that they don't allow anyone in after 1:30. I would never of left if it were posted somewhere.

Yesterday 05/26/22 I went to Beaux to have fun with my friends and I was having fun, was tipsy and all until one of the security guards walked to me and put the flashlight in my face, I didn’t understand I wasn’t doing anything wrong and I didn’t have anything illicit. So he pointed to my phone with the flashlight which was in my back pocket and said something about it being stolen, I understand that he was looking out for me, but that was scary and I completely lost my vibe and left the club and came home. I’ve never been pick pocketed in my life and I’m Brazilian, that’s common at nightclubs there, I know how to handle myself and I don’t need security to come and tell me what to do with my belongings.

What an amazing little venue! The bartenders are so friendly! The performers are fabulous! The bathrooms are clean and gender neutral, and the local audience combined with out-of-towners is a really fun and engaging experience.I will never forget the song (dua lupa - levitating) one performer danced to, and her presence in the club while performing... It left a life long impression on me, and I'll forever remember her and the song.

Came here with friends and it was such a nice experience! The staff were not only really nice and helpful from the security to the bar backs. Most importantly they took care of every detail we take for granted. They really want to see people have fun and enjoy themselves in a safe and clean place.

So, last night I experienced something that has never ever ever happened to me at a bar and I’ve been to a ton of bars. I ordered a drink and left my tab opened. I go back to order dranks for my friends and this bartender, who thought he was God’s gift to mankind, asked me to present my ID prior to fulfilling my drink order. I’m use to discrimination being a single sexy black man but damn. Being ID for my open tab? Really qween. Yea, I rather spend my dollars at Lookout or Hi-Tops where I can leave a tab open without showing #%[email protected]“ ID. The lesbian bartender on the other hand was amazing. Loved that girl and her tattoos.

This is the worst experience we had in SF. Me and my friends lost our phone and wallets in the bar and the management was least bothered about the incident. There were at least 10 others who lost their phones here. This place is a a scam and I would recommend anyone who is visiting the city to stay away from this place

I had my wallet stolen during a busy weekend on the dance floor and was absolutely devastated. My partner recently passed away & many photos of us together and notes she had written were stolen. The kindness of the security & staff working at Beaux that night has blown me away. Michael, and other the security guards were more than patient and understanding with me. Their compassion saved me at my lowest, thank you for trying 🤍

So much fun. Quick service at the bar, given how many people there. Great DJ on Saturday night. Organized line outside. They know how to do it right! Can't wait to come back.

It can be a fun club depending on the night and whose DJ’ing. Last night a friends mask literally fell over into the container that housed the lemons for the alcoholic beverages. I simply reached in to grab it out (because it’s disgusting and you need a mask for reentry into the club) and the bartender literally had a meltdown. I get it. You’re not supposed to reach in but you can clearly see a dirty mask inside the lemon container. He was too busy playing “cop” and screaming at me while still serving now dirty lemons to people instead of changing it out. Not everyone at the bar is completely out of it and incompetent and if you’re a “good” bartender you would know your crowd as well as if someone is drunk trying to be disruptive or literally trying to fix a situation. In no way shape or form was I drunk or even tipsy. That bartender could care less what we had to say in defense of our actions but still served people lemons that had just been sautéed in a dirty mask. Not coming back here ever again because now I question the cleanliness of this “bar”. P.S please diversify your music selection and stop playing the same song on repeat just because the crowd loves it doesn’t mean you should play it 20 times in one night. I would rate you zero stars but that’s not possible so I’ll give you a one. Thank you SO much #MiddleFingersUp

This is the best club in the Castro as far as I'm concerned, and I'm not just saying that because I work there. I love my job, but this place is always popping. Crazy sexy go go dancers, drag queens, a great staff and I love our patrons. Honestly the people make the club, and the people here really make it worth a trip to the Castro. I quite literally run to work every night I'm on shift.

Beaux is fantastic place to dance and grab a cocktail. The music is fantastic and they have atmosphere dancers that really set the tone for the night. I have been on Thursday night which was a blast and a Saturday night that is also a blast. I have been to the other themed nights but one of these days I am sure I will make it.Drinks are well priced and the bartenders are friendly, fast, and efficient. Beaux does get busy so if you don't like waiting in lines then get there early. They also have a coat check and that line can get long as well.

I had a terrible birthday here! The bartender was so rude all because I did not tip him due to his lack or service. I call him multiple times and I waited and he still passed me up. He said he owned the club and said he did not want my money when I tipped other bartenders there who helped me. I understand they are busy but he was purposely passing by me after the 5th time I called and reached my hand out. If that was the owner he is so disrespectful and rude. He just catered to one side and ignored me. And when I said something he made a ton of excuses and just when I was going to let him know if I can get another drink I’ll tip him on the next round he shut me down. I’ll never go there again. If I can put 0 stars I would lol.

Went on a Friday and Sunday night. They played nothing but house music/techno. Not the place to go for dancing or good music (such as top hits).

The bar is cool, the atmosphere is cool. But the bartender who is near the dance floor is very bad. I went after my card, more than 1 hour to return it and I had only bought 1 beer, I don't know the reason because I wanted to pay all the fees and she did not accept to return me even with my ID. So be careful when shopping with her and she is a woman with short hair with a lot of tattoos. I don't recommend getting any drinks with her by paying by card. Worst attendance and made me give up the city entirely on my first night.she was really stupid, she wanted an explanation for what she did. I hope she improves her behavior and is much better as a person.

The place is definitely good and recommended.The people are beautiful and friendly, the staff are nice.I really liked the fact that you can go to club and you can order alcohol as much as you want cause the prices are fair.In Israel him and tonic at a club costs averaging 20$ and here we paid 7.5$ for a glass. I think it’s fine.The music was ok - hits basically but i really like blink182 and amy whinehouse, and I can’t find it related, well it’s just me.If you around - go there, you’ll have a good time and that is what matters.

The Missouri Mule first opened in the early 30s By Norwegian immagrant Hans K. Lund and his business partner Glen Swenson until the bar was sold to Berkeley police officer Wayne Knutila and his business partners in 1953 changing hands once again in 1963 when the bar was closed for a short time to expand and rebrand itself officially reopening that same year under the same name as one of San Francisco's first openly gay bars. Over the years the name along with the size of the establishment have changedToday the bar is called Beaux

Asked to speak the manager Eric. Was embarrassing to see he was clearly drunk on duty, or on some substance. The security guards told us we could go to the outside section after we asked. We had just waited in line for an hour and a half to get in and paid $20 each. After waiting 20 mins he came out and ignored me. Didn’t want to even acknowledge my presence, ridiculously unprofessional. You’re the manager. Don’t come in to work drunk, and then be too cowardly to not quickly take on and resolve a situation, then in a slurred voice tell me you don’t care about my situation. When I just saw you take money to let in others and your friends! I normally don’t write reviews but you deserve this one. Bravo manager. I am sure this is not your first offense given the state you came in to work.

Found this place after encountering incompetent and rude staff at the Toad Hall. Came here for drinks with my date after a lovely dinner. The usher was polite and the waiter was courteous and efficient (not to mention very cute). Drinks were well done, my date mentioned how the concentration of alcohol in his Old Fashioneds was increasing 😆 with every one he ordered haha. But yeah, good place, great vibes, great staff!

Just moved here and was already over some of the other bars in the area. Most specifically The Mix. That place is a hot mess and they act like their better than everyone.I've only been here twice but both times have been a great experience. It reminds me of Blake's from back home in Atlanta

I was told by my friends that this place is so fun and lively to come to and this drag events are amazing! Usually the people that work their mainly ( security & waiters) are very kind and respectful! But the Manager Joshua Cook is very disrespectful and has no, I mean NO COMMON CURIOSITY, NO RESPECT, NO GOOD MANNERS when it come to speaking with customers at all and you need that whole-heartily work in the restaurant industry!According to him we were at fault when two host communicated with us to be seated in front of a different property! He told us to walk away in a very rude and nasty manner saying to us “ You Better walk away if you want to be seated!” We were calm, respectful and wasn’t bothering anybody.Just want to shed light on our experience.
