The Stud is YOUR BAR. For 50 years we have been at the cutting edge of San Francisco nightlife with our one-of-a-kind parties, killer cocktails, eye-popping drag and burlesque shows, and welcoming community events. Serving the cheapest queer drinks, including daily happy hour specials 5pm-8pm, at the longest bar in SoMa, we'll make you feel right at home and downright festive. 

The Stud Bar, located at 399 9th Street on the corner of Harrision, is a queer venue and nightlife hub in the SOMA district of San Francisco. The bar is owned and operated by an 18-person worker-owner cooperative. From serving drinks and playing tunes to cleaning floors and checking IDs, Stud Collective members do it all.  

A brief list of some of the queer icons who have appeared at the Stud: The Weather Girls (aka Two Tons o’ Fun), Sylvester, Etta James, Bjork, Lady Gaga, Ana Matronic, Justin Vivian Bond,  Michael Stipe, Lady Miss Kier, RuPaul, and Charo.

The Stud is open every day! Come dancing at one of our parties, celebrate good times at our happy hour, or perch at the bar and find a new friend.
