Gold Standard
Cocktails and Pictionary in Nob Hill

You remember school.

Chalkboards. Tetherball. Those little Norman Rockwell–looking desks.

Good times.

And while something tells us you’d prefer to keep your Trapper Keeping golden days in the past, something also tells us you could be persuaded otherwise.

Maybe if somebody threw in some martinis and nine-ball...

Welcome Gold Star Bar, a low-key neighborhood watering hole, now open in Nob Hill to satisfy your considerable cocktailing, billiarding and adult-recessing needs.

The next time you have a big first date or an important meeting with a client, you’ll take them... anywhere but here. Because this is where you’ll go with a couple buddies with a knack for pool, board games and/or knocking back bottles of Anchor Steam.

The joint has kind of a “Hot for Teacher” vibe—vintage school desks where you can sit and nurse an Old Fashioned, chalkboard-lined walls where you can doodle to your heart’s content, blonde teachers secretly rocking bikinis. (We may have made up that last one.)

We see you coming here on random Saturdays, taking in some March Madness on the two flat-screens above the bar, or just shooting stick with a rum/coconut Ocean Beach in hand. But if you’re around on Wednesday, you can partake in their inaugural Pictionary tournament.

We know how you dominate at All Play.
