      Worth the drive!
      I've been going to KoC since early 2003. Through upswings and down in the number of people that go on a regular basis, changes in nightly themes, staffing changes and various stages of decoration, one thing has remained constant: the welcoming nature of the "regulars". While everyone has their own unique personality, there's a general air of acceptance, which is why people come from all over the Bay Area to a relative dive bar in the middle of nowhere. The drink prices are certainly not low, but they're reasonable and the bartenders are generally not stingy. While the men's bathroom left a lot to be desired before (as I see has been noted elsewhere), they've recently upgraded to an actual urinal. It's my favorite place to go and I hope the overall attitude doesn't ever change. Of important note, while I called it a gay bar, the general tone of acceptance applies here too. On any given night there's usually a good mix of gay men and women, bisexuals, transgendered, cross-dressers, straight and questioning people. We've got 21 year olds and 61 year olds that come on a regular basis. I love that it's not pigeon-holed into one type of clientele.

      It's kind of like the Gay Cheer's. Everyone knows everyone's name. Very friendly environment.

      One of the best places in town. Good mix of gay and straight but not narrow clientele. Looks like a dive and not exactly in the best neighborhood but the employees and patrons are very friendly and welcoming to new people. There are more men than woman but it is lesbian owned and manged so you do get some very nice women in there. Bonus: Kareoke three nights a week with a very cool KJ. KJ's and most of the bartenders patricipate in the kareoke as well and no one cares if you can sing or not. All they care about is whether you're having fun or not.
