IS KOZY KAR?
Kozy Kar is a bar of all things cool growing up in the 70's and
early 80's. Custom vans, eight track players, CB radios,
waterbeds, chain steering wheels, shag, mirrored ceilings, van bar
seats are just a few of the amenities.
(website slightly NSFW) is an unabashedly, endearingly trashy bar
on Polk Street that mixes 70s car culture with copious pages torn
from vintage Playboy magazines that seem to cover every surface of
its interiorâï¿½ï¿½they're even shellacked to the dance floor. Let its
Lite Brite sign lure you in to sip a PBR or one of their
extra-strong drinks while sitting on a waterbed covered in shag
carpet (oh, and the walls are covered in shag carpeting too). If
you're rolling deep, get your crew inside one of the booths that's
really a hollowed-out air-brushed van equipped with old CB radios.
Needless to say, there's a lot to look at."

SAID ABOUT KOZY KAR
Top Nine Bars of San Francisco 2011
San Francisco Travel
"Bars along Polk Street are plentiful, so how does a bar
stand out among the pack? By having stiff drinks, looped 70's
cartoons and movies, questionable photos plastered all along the
bar and 70's vans with chairs and waterbeds, Kozy Kar does just
that. It's a unique bar that you can only find in San

"Theme bars aren't the most fail-safe entrepreneurial
ventures, but if you're going to give one a try, covering your
watering hole with titty shots is probably a smart bet. It's a
wonder, then, that no reputable S.F. taverns had taken this
approach until 2009, when Kozy Kar opened on Polk Street. If
Scooby and Shaggy joined forces with Hugh Hefner to paint the town
red, this is probably where they'd spend most of the night. The
bar is decorated like the interior of a hotboxed 1970s pussy
wagon, with minibus-shaped booths, fully accessible waterbeds, and
vintage porn pics plastered over the dance floor. Throw in the
Missile Control arcade game in the corner, and you can see why
Kozy Kar is a certain sensibility's approximation of heaven"
Everything That Was Important in 2009
Urban Daddy's Top Nine Bars of 2009
"Some eras are worth reliving, especially if centerfolds and
waterbeds are involved. Kudos to Kozy Kar for unabashedly
embracing the '70s and early '80s by covering its floors and bars
with vintage centerfolds, adding mirrored ceilings and, of course,
installing a custom 1983 GMC in the heart of it all for
CitySearch's Top Ten New Bars of 2009
"There's a reason there aren't too many theme bars in San
Francisco, a city which takes great pride in its ratio of seedy
dives to square miles. Kozy Kar, however, may have found the
perfect combination--a pervy, '70s-inspired dive decked out to
make you feel like you're drinking inside a bona fide
disco-swinger love van. With everything from shag-carpeted walls
and waterbed-booths to working CB radios and a real, live âï¿½ï¿½83
GMC van, the commitment to reviving the best parts of Dazed and
Confused is astounding. The theme extends to the booze on offer,
as well, with a full lineup of canned PBR, Schlitz, Olympia and
Hammâï¿½ï¿½s, and the kind of whiskeys that match a huge 'stache, an
obsession with Led Zeppelin and, yes, a souped-up '70s van with a
unicorn mural and a teardrop window."
