One Night Stands – Badlands

Shop at the late night meat market better known as Badlands if you’re looking to put another notch in the ‘ol bedpost. This bar is filled to the brim with European tourists, twins, and innocent out-of-towners every night. When it overflows, head across the street to its sister bar, Toad Hall.

A Beautiful Bouquet – Urban Flowers

The Looking-famous Urban Flowers Shop is filled with off-the wall varieties we guarantee you’ve never seen before as well as more than a few daddies to check out. From the classics to the oddest things you can image, a stop in this mom-and-pop flower shop is the perfect way to say whatever it is you want.

Uniquely Castro – Castro Theatre with Hot Cookie

Nothing says “Castro” like the landmark Castro Theatre, literally. It flashes a neon C-A-S-T-R-O all night. This neighborhood gathering spot has garnered international acclaim and hosts shows ranging from fabulous sing-a-longs to cult classics and box office hits. If you get a sweet tooth at the theater, swing in the shop next door, Hot Cookie, for the most scrumptious and scandalous treats in the ‘hood. You may leave with a pair of underwear or your picture in “Hot Cookie” branded underwear on the wall.

Fun In The Bedroom – Rock Hard

Rock Hard is one of several adult oriented stores on the main Castro block. Rock Hard has enough unique merchandise to keep you entertained in the store – and the bedroom – for hours on end.

Well-Fashioned Attire – Citizen and Union Made

The many boutique shops have a wide range of clothing and accessories. Stop into Citizen and Union Made for some dashing and debonair, gentlemanly inspiration.

Sexy Underwear- Body
