Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco –
Located in tourist-heavy Fisherman’s Wharf, The Parlor is equal parts dance club, sports bar, and classic cocktail lounge.
Daily Happy Hours entice preppy young Giants fans from the nearby Marina to drop in for a game and a Bud, not to mention the tidal waves of out-of-towners making a pit stop before hitting the area’s specialty shops, museums, and restaurants.
Beer-barrel tables, antique chairs, and vintage chandeliers give the ground floor a hybrid saloon-meets-speakeasy quality, but the location means visitors sipping Dark & Stormys are more likely to be older Midwestern vacationers than local mixology nerds.
Late in the week, however, the velvet couches and rustic pub tables fill with a young mix of thirsty clubbers, trendy girls looking to dance, and boys on a beer mission, as guests with money to burn take over TV-equipped booths and laid-back bros lock in around the pool table in back.
A cavernous basement space and a second bar await downstairs, where DJs helm a large dance floor, spinning Top 40 mash-ups and house as revelers get dark & sweaty beneath a mass of strobe lights.
Paintings of can-can dancers overlook the mahogany tables and red booths where newly minted couples relax between sets, though VIPs looking to escape the beats usually opt for the roped-off Library room, complete with fake bookshelf doors and a third bar.
An all-in-one venue, The Parlor is that special kind of destination where patrons will find a great mix of low-key exclusivity, relaxed cocktailing, and drunken dancing.
Sporty Marina types, Happy Hour barhoppers, trendy clubbers, young beer hounds, and tourists from Fisherman’s Wharf, mid-20s to 40s+.
