The servers at AsiaSF have to be absolutely gorgeous, with perfect long legs, ample breasts, and sculpted buns that could crush a coconut.
Oh, and they all have to be Asian men. More on that in a second.
A favorite venue for boisterous bachelorette parties, it’s not unusual to see large groups of giggling girls strolling down the entryway’s red carpet, where a paparazzi-style photographer waits to snap everyone’s picture on Fridays and Saturdays.
The expansive ground floor restaurant is surrounded by color-changing shoji screens and lined with modish round tables, but the centerpiece is undoubtedly the massive bar that serves as a performance stage for the famous “women” of AsiaSF.
Doubling as waitresses and cocktail servers, these “gender illusionists” deliver Cal-Asian platters to the patrons, though food is definitely an afterthought for the celebratory clientele. They’re all waiting to see these sexy gal-dudes climb atop the bar to lip-synch, dance, and strip down as everyone hoots and hollers.
While it’s true that folks may pay a bit extra for the entrées, the moneyed businessmen, brides-to-be, and birthday boys clapping and dancing along don’t seem to mind the price considering that the ladies – who usually incorporate the audience into their shows – come with it.
After the last performance, festive friends keep the party going by heading to the brick basement nightclub, where DJs spin Top 40 beneath pulsing lights and disco balls.
Promising a unique bit of fun, AsiaSF is a quintessential San Francisco experience for those with both open minds and open pocketbooks.
Friday and Saturday nights at AsiaSF are amazing. You walk in and immediately get the star treatment, with photographers snapping your photo throughout the whole evening. It’s like being at a big Hollywood event. The next day, all you have to do is ‘Like’ their Facebook page to get your photos.
Big bachelorette parties, birthday groups, anniversary gatherings, older business travelers, and lots of open-minded tourists, mid-20s to mid-40s. The first show of every evening allows those under 21.
“Gender Illusionists” perform two shows at each dinner seating. DJ spins Top 40 downstairs F–Sa from 7pm.
Three-course prix fix menu for parties of five and under, family style menu for parties of six or more. Dinner seating W–Th, Su 7:15pm, F 7:15pm and 9:15pm, Sa 5pm, 7:15pm, and 9:15pm. Reservations suggested.
No cover charge. Prix fixe menus $35–$69. Beer $6–$8, wine $9–$14, cocktails $9–$13, shots $6–$10. Family style menu varies depending on party size.
Stylish and sexy: button-downs, blazers, flashy shirts, mini cocktail dresses, fitted denim, fun and edgy accessories.
Friday and Saturday nights for the most scheduled dance performances, though reservations are highly recommended.
About a mile away is Divas Nightclub & Bar (1081 Post Street), a popular transgender club with equally stunning ladies, cheap drinks, and a primarily gay crowd.
