After a two-month remodel, Tope Lounge in North Beach has finally reopened and is kicking off with a brand new HellaFunny comedy night on Tuesdays w/ $2 off all specialty cocktails and wine plus a great lineup of comics who you'll regularly see at Cobbs, Punchline, SF Sketchfest and more.
Tope is funky and fun, with a tin ceiling, custom-designed psychedelic mushroom wallpaper from local artist Cecilia Granata, neon signs and rainbow Tulum-style swinging chairs.
// HELLAFUNNY: NORTH BEACH COMEDY BLAST //
Back in the beatnik days there were live poetry readings, in the '60s as the "Kiwi" it was the first non-smoking gay bar in SF, and was a bar that both Allen Ginsberg and Janis Joplin both hung out with. When it was "The Gathering" legend has it there was a bartender named Brian that had a monthly customer appreciation day. He made pot cookies sprinkled with speed.
HellaFunny is the Bay Area's premier comedy collective headed by Stroy Moyd (series regular on "Blindspotting" on STARZ!). HellaFunny runs comedy shows at bars, parklets and secret locations all over the Bay Area in addition to monthly take overs at Cobb's, SF's largest comedy club and for the Golden State Warriors at Thrive City outdoor comedy showcases at Chase Center.
