Monarch has been voted one of San Francisco's top lounges and has a fantastic sound system (http://monarchsf.com/site/featured/monarch-2012-awards). It is located 2 blocks from Powell St BART stop and the on-street parking is usually easy (though read the parking signs and don't leave anything in your car!). The 6th and Mission Area does have a lot of homeless people, so pay attention and be safe! Monarch doesn't serve food, but there are plenty of good, inexpensive places to eat in the area.
This is a 21+ venue, so please bring ID. There will be drink specials with Couchsurfing name tag. Name tags will be provided at the event.
2 for 1 Sapporo Beers from 8-11PM w name tag.
