We are one, proud and many.

The last gay bar in San Mateo closed over 20 years ago as the Castro took hold of gay nightlife. In the two decades since, the peninsula LGBT community has felt the impact of this cultural void. Luckily, the Internet came along and smartphone apps created stitching to bridge that void — but the void still existed.

The Prism is excited to banish the void. Like its namesake, Prism will illuminate the rainbow that exists here on the peninsula: In Millbrae. In Burlingame. In San Mateo. Belmont. San Carlos. Redwood City. Atherton. Menlo Park. Palo Alto. Prism is the bar for the peninsula.

Start your weekends by unwinding from the comfort of your backyard. Stay close to home with easy parking and, best of all, make friends with locals who live near you.
