The Napper Tandy unveils its new look

The Napper Tandy on 24th S. Van Ness launched their new look last Friday. The exterior has been overhauled and lit with extra-bright fog lights. The interior has been completely redone to match their discerning, classy clientele of football fans (no, not “American football”).

What, you don’t hang out at the Napper Tandy? I’ll have you know that Irish Public Houses are part of a rich, worldwide tradition of capitalizing on Ireland’s drinking culture, and providing a safe haven for English visitors who too squeamish to socialize in unfamiliar countries. Take part in that rich tradition this weekend, won’t you?

Not only that, the Napper Tandy one of the few Mission purveyors of the full Irish Breakfast, which basically two of every animal you can think of. This “noah’s ark” diet is excellent fuel for a mid-day nap. Come to think of it, maybe that’s why “Napper” is in the bar’s name.

    You know Ireland isn’t England, right? Not even the-UK-isn’t-England thing either.

    I happened to stop in the night they had their soft re-opening. Praise the beer lords!

    This is the worst bar in the mission, id rather head to carlos bar near the bart stop for dancing

      You know Carlos’ bar is now a coffee shop?

      Why? Because it isn’t either (a) dangerous (b) a scene?

      This is one of the best bars in the Mission. It’s wonderfully not-ironic, which means it not filled top to bottom with hipsters. If you have a personality you can actually talk to interesting locals, like muni drivers and mexican laborers. The food is decent, the bartenders are great, and the regulars are hilarious–what’s not to like?

    I feel like I’m missing something with this bar. Been there maybe 5 or 6 times and never really had a great time. I can’t speak to the food, as I’ve never had it, but the drinks seemed kind of expensive for what they were. Also, the pool tables were in terrible shape last time I was there.

    Yet, somehow people seem to love it. What gives?

      I like it for being a place that serves decently-priced food and has a full bar. There are other places fitting that description, but they usually tend to be either greasy (but awesome!) gut-bombers like Bender’s or higher end restaurants. The Napper Tandy hits that in-between sweet spot.

      I’ve never gone there just for the bar side of things, although they seem to do pretty well for themselves on that front.

        Ah, gotcha. Thanks for providing me with an actual explanation instead of being a snarky dickhead! Maybe I’ll give it another shot sometime.

    this bar rules, some of these commenters should punch themselves in the face before heading back to the beauty bar
