San Francisco Street View: Butter


“Deep in the health-conscious heart of San Francisco stands a monument to the inner fat kid we abandoned to go live in the Bay called Butter.” Vice Magazine nailed why I love my favorite neighborhood hangout and find myself there at every opportunity. Last night I hung out there with my favorite girls.

Butter is part dive bar, part bridge-and-tunnel, white-trash den of decadence. My girls and I went for a night out on the town and instead found ourselves wedged between a birthday party and a bachelorette party and held captive in front of reruns of “American Gladiators” with Marina Girls dancing on the bar.

Butter describes itself as: “unparalleled in our ground breaking application of the latest in radiated cuisine. Tasty, home cooked selections just like your babysitter used to make. Utilizing multiple microwaves, our trailer chef is capable of a dazzling array of dishes skillfully prepared using just the right power settings and timing sequences.”

So we savored the salt, I downed the Prom Night Punch drinks, and just danced with my ladies. Try the Latch-Key tea, but when you’re on your second one past midnight don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Butter is located at 354 11th Street, San Francisco, CA 94103 (cross streets are Folsom and Harrison) in San Francisco’s South Of Market District, in what is frequently referred to as “The SOMA Club Corridor.”
