SF Clubs Overview

Harry Denton's Starlight Room - Lounge | Restaurant | Nightclub in SF

No, it’s not the club capital of the world, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a host of clubs in San Francisco to choose from when planning a night out.

The highest concentration of traditional San Francisco clubs is in SoMa (South of Market), North Beach, and around Union Square Downtown. Plenty of swanky nightclubs offer a see-and-be-seen atmosphere, while long-standing institutions like Ruby Skye are so expansive they have room for everyone on the dance floor.

Cool underground jazz clubs and blues clubs are easy to find in The Mission, while those looking for a guaranteed upscale evening (that will no doubt degenerate into an anything-goes fest after a few drinks) need look no further than the Marina clubs.

Big warehouses in SoMa have been cleaned out since the dotcom madness and replaced with massive multi-level DJ dance clubs, and even a few 18+ clubs have popped up in this area too.

The Castro, of course, is where to go for a bumping gay SF club scene, although that nightlife scene is flourishing out into SoMa as well – especially the hardcore leather and S&M clubs. But hey, it’s San Francisco, a city known for letting it all hang out.
