BarFly's Review of White Eagle
McMenaminized 19th-century Polish brothel, said to be haunted by a number of spirits. Ask a bartender - they all have stories. Note the beautiful bar was hauled around Cape Horn, way back when. Excellent and diverse live music several nights a week, low or no cover. Large patio. Affordable, funky hotel rooms available upstairs.

Mcmenamins is a good company, and the White Eagle is swell as a curio bar with "history," but it is a sucky place to see a band. The bar is thin and small, and to make matters worse, is uncomfortably cluttered up with square, ornate, old world and bulky tables and chairs. The band's space and the equally small dance floor are cramped. Waiting for a drink in the thin place is cramped. Lastly, I am trying to get my music groove on while a nitwit basketball game is playing, with the squares in the crowd cheering or booing over the music, as the local team's fortunes ebb and flow. Fucking lame. By the way, the band didn't seem to be diggin' it. Ok, one more lastly: this ornate dive is in a creepy location. This is a superfluous place, old and in the way.
The Sunday open mic seems to be a cool scene for some of the movers and shakers in the area.
I'd plan on going at least once. Get there a bit before the published open mic signup time to get a slot.
No Po that is! Why go through the hassle of trying to get a spot at Widmer when you can hop right into any available seat here? Best service out of any of the other McMenamin's locations and You can smoke cigarettes at the bar for you smokers. Try the Rubinator or the White Russian a.k.a. The Lebowski. They also scored a jukebox several months ago which is super when it's slow and quiet. A good place to meet up but not to get your drunk on.
The summer patio is great. Too bad they got rid of the food happy hour. That was one of the best deals in NoPo and the only reason I ever went. By the way, this place really IS haunted.
