For fifty year, the Stud Bar has been at the cutting edge of San Francisco nightlife with a one-of-a-kind party, killer cocktails,eye-popping drag and burlesque shows, and welcoming community events. 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 queer icons who have appeared at the Stud: The Weather Girls, Sylvester, Etta James, Bjork, Lady Gaga, Ana Matronic, Justin Vivian Bond, Michael Stipe, Lady Miss Kier, RuPaul, and Charo.
