decent watering hole: Taraval and 21st area

Jill D | Mar 4, 200205:23 PM     5

Hi all - am planning a going away party for a friend and am seeking a decent place to gather and drink a few beers on Thursday night. We'd like to stick around 21st and Taraval, within 5 blocks max. I know there's places around there, but am not sure which would best fit the bill.

The bill is:

cleanish
accomodates 10-15 people
decent selection on tap
if there were a pool table, that would be swell

Our standards, they are not too high. I do recall one bar in that neighborhood that was hostile to new people - this was 1992, probably all different now, but nasty at the time (the regulars were a little too regular and hardbitten). Can't recall which place that was and don't want to happen upon it again - have had enough grumbling about those damn kids to last me for a lifetime (though now it's 10 years later, perhaps we wouldn't be views as damn kids, but that's wondering better left elsewhere).

Anyway, any suggestions are welcome! Thanks for the insight.
