Horseshoe Tavern – The Un-Marina Marina Bar

 

I was first introduced to the Horseshoe Tavern when I was taking an improv class nearby in Fort Mason. Let me say nothing better prepares you to play “acting” games with middle-aged pharmaceutical sales people than a few pints. In an effort to catch our hometown baseball Giants before class a co-worker instructed me to check out the Horshoe since it wasn’t like a typical “marina” bar. Immediately I threw up a red flag, “how can you pidgeon hole a bar like that .. man”. Fortunately for me my need to grab a beer and watch baseball trumped my righteous indignation.

The Horseshoe really isn’t like any other bar in the Marina. Both the staff and patrons are very friendly and inviting and most importantly the dress code requires almost no skull t-shirts or popped collars. Aside from the good vibes and cold beer The Horseshoe takes care of the bar staples, including but not limited to pool tables, multiple TVs and a well stocked juke box.

If you find yourself in the Marina and need a low pressure pint it is in your best interest to check out the Horseshoe Tavern.
