Your Bartenders


Having begun his bar career at McCarthy's on Mission St., then Market St., Don keeps Portal's Tavern running, old style.  With a judicious editorial on the CDs in the jukebox and an attentive ear to requests from regulars, Don is the spirit behind the old school atmosphere that keeps Portal's alive.


Once a bartender at San Francisco's infamous Punch Line Comedy Club and Kansas City native, Randy provides excellent impersonations of Tom Jones and provides our monthly incursion of comedians with refreshments and an easy, jolly laugh.


Long time Sunset bartender, Mario brings in the weekend right on Friday afternoons with friendly jests, a quick wit, and a smart hand with the dice cup.


A long time regular, Susan started bartending at her local watering-hole as a temporary job nearly ten years ago and hasn't left yet!  With a day job at the SF Zoo, this proud grandmother loves the ease of conversation and quiet, friendly daytime atmosphere Portal's Tavern provides.


A recent graduate of USF, Jacque has been bartending for a number of years and loves a crowd, big or small.  Whether you want a beer and a shot or a classic cocktail, she loves the craft and will work hard to pour you the best dang drink out there.
