Bartenders aren’t friendly, only one restroom for the whole bar….

Great bar, music, atmosphere, but unfortunately the front door guy tonight july 17th, was extremely rude and obnoxious twoards the two guests infront of me without any reason, trying to instigating them to start a fight with him, but they calmly just walked in and ignored his immaturity. If the management doesn't take care of this, they will lose their business, I'm surely never will step my foot into thet placep if I see him in the front.

The Edge and its staff are friendly and provides a good time on most nights. However, it also features drag shows like other gay bars to stay alive. It is getting harder to find a gay bar to socialize with friends without a theme or drag show that provides a safe and fun environment.

My first night in San Fran having fun with friends then we got to this bar, ordered drinks with a skinny peach queen, I told him what I needed he had an attitude already, and said "he could not hear what I said" I repeated my order and he still said he did not understand my order, tried a 3rd time and he started ignoring me. I order my drink with the bartender next to him and he gave me what I ordered right away. Then the deaf queen saw me with drinks and walked out of the bar and confronted me telling me to pay him the drinks he made for me. I told him he did not made any drinks for me, but he still wanted me to pay 24 dlls to him. I was so upset and told my friend to finish whatever they were drinking and go to another bar because the bartender had me so upset and I couldn't be there when I was treated so poorly. On our way out I asked another bartender for the manager, he said there was no manager but he was on charge, I tried to explained what happened and he was so nice and asked me if there was something he could do to fix the issue. I told him no, but I just wanted the manager or owner of the bar to know the kind of people he had working there, he ruined my night, I felt discriminated and its just unacceptable to treat a stranger bad for no reason. I do not recommend this place, especially if you are a person of color.

It was so disappointing, way to crowded and we were charged $5 each “for entrance for the show” and there weren’t no show. It was a competition and it was over by the time we got in. Plus unfortunately for being a local drag queen Elsa Touche was extremely rude, not friendly and not polite at all.

Was excited for a post pandemic night out. Edge was one of our stops. Was insanely crowded but the vibe and clientele was just way off, from the screechy girl working the door to the go go guy to the B&T crowd. Awful. Didn’t even finish our drinks. This bar used to be fun enough but if this is the new normal no thanks.

I don’t know what to say. They know how to take care of customers. Make sure you tip your bartenders 💪🏾

the worst experience I've ever had at a bar. After getting my drink and it was way too strong- I put a splash of Gatorade that I had in my bag instead of having them re make me a drink. They freaked out and said that wasn't allowed- the waiter then literally threw the bill at us and said to come back when we're more mature and can follow rules? LOL. Then the host came to the table when we were leaving and kept belittling and yelling at us over a Gatorade. I had just left a bar where my Gatorade was on the table the entire time. he also gave us someone else's card and charged someone else for our drinks which is clearly illegal. Will never go back here.

Meh. They play like the same 15 musical numbers on repeat most nights and the people that work here are way too serious about their jobs.

Friendliest and best crowd and crew in the Castro. Adapted to Covid protocols very quickly. Inclusive and engaged business.
