431 E. 5th St. (B/w Aves. A & B)
Legendary. Well, at least it was... This dark, spacious bar used to be Mission in the early 90's, when it had squats instead of French bistros for neighbors, and played goth/industrial 24/7. Ace serves good drinks at average prices and they're extremely goth-friendly. If nothing else, it's worth a trip to see their collection of vintage lunchboxes... how goth!
