Bloom's is a classic San Francisco local dive bar, with pool tables and a locals-only crowd. The bartenders may not be friendly, but the crowd usually is. Stop by on a weekday evening for a few pints and enjoy the Potrero Hill scene. It's a welcome break from the trendy.
It's a bit of a shame about this bar, it's definitely a fine example of a locals sports bar, attended by much yelling at TV's on Saturday afternoon and surly service from the bar tenders if you're not a local BUT it's actually a great example of a classic SF bar. Nice wood interior, (bit of a simple drink selection) but the view out the back is great. You should check out the Golden Gun detective agency in the room above the bar - perfect film Noir.
