The 21 Club is one of the last remaining bastions of Tenderloin dive bars in San Francisco. Located at the intersection of Turk and Taylor, the place serves stiff drinks and bottled beers to a diverse crowd of both grizzled old-timers and bohemian youth. Frank the bartender has been serving there as long as anyone can remember. In fact the place is often referred to as Frank's 21 Club. The walls are crammed with dusty mementos and non-ironic kitsch that complement a jukebox laden with musical memories from decades gone by. Although the overhead TV is usually tuned to sports or the prime-time movie du jour, sometimes the most intense drama happens right outside the 21 Club's front door, here in the heart of the Tenderloin, life itself is a round-the-clock tragicomedy.
