Stephens Green, 223 Castro St., Mountain View.
Stephens Green is a pretty authentic pub with minimal electronic toys and maximum good bar food. They have a lot of activity from the SV techno set but also from "civilians," but you canít help that. Sports events shown include GAA, Soccer-Premiership, MLS & Champions League, Football -- NFL Sunday Ticket, College football, Big Ten, ESPN, Hockey, Baseball, Basketball, Rugby, UFC Fight Nights, etc. With tech companies like Google, Yahoo, Cypress, and Facebook, the place is always pretty packed.
Great article! If you are over 50, the top of the list is St. James. Mixture of tech workers, Stanford grad students, bikers, and Navy pilots from Moffett Field... Great place! But, the ultimate tech bar was not on the list. Ely McFlys in Cupertino. Next door to Apple (aka Bandley 7) it was where Apple, FourPhase, and the occasional lost HP employees ended up after work, many times during. Inside was decorated to look like a mad scientist lab. Tons of old Microwave equipment glued to the wall. Massive old vacuum tubes used as lighting fixtures. Weird space ships everywhere....or maybe it was the Tequila.
