Party Earth Trigger Review

The Scene

Far more upscale than most Castro venues, Trigger is a modest-size club where pretty patrons rock the small dance floor and sexy performers shake it in a cage above the bar.

Far more upscale than most Castro venues, Trigger is a modest-size club where pretty patrons rock the small dance floor and sexy performers shake it in a cage above the bar.

Once past the frosted glass façade, guests enter an industrial space with bare concrete walls, glittering chandeliers, and a large bar in the middle.

Themes and drink specials change nightly, but there’s usually a toned go-go dancer working a pole at the bar’s center as other male and female dancers helm the corners – ensuring no shortage of eye candy for the dolled-up boys and girls ordering cocktails.

Although a dress code is not enforced, it’s not uncommon to see groups of chic model-esque women and polished men lounging in one of several private booths, which include cozy Victorian-styled nooks tucked in next to the DJ and tables along the elevated stage. The best views of the main level revelry, however, are from the glass-rimmed mezzanine, where plush sofas invite the bottle service crowd to relax between Top 40 and mash-up sets and take a breather from scoping out the crowd.

Packed with action that’s only muzzled by last call, Trigger is a sure shot for Castro clubbers looking to target a good time.

Tip from Adriana:

Head to the club on Mondays for the 80s night when they often bring a photo booth onto the dance floor. Nothing like letting loose to Boy George with a cranberry and vodka in hand and then channeling your inner Tyra Banks with an impromptu photo shoot.

  • Crowd

    Gay and straight mix of clubbers, dance fiends, chic ladies, dapper men, and groups of girls, mid-20s to mid-30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    DJs spin mostly Top 40, house, and electro mash-ups. Occasional guest DJs from New York and Los Angeles. Aerialists and acrobats perform during special events. Free photo booth regularly brought in.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Free nachos on Fridays, and occasional free snacks on special nights. Complimentary cupcakes/desserts available for birthday groups who reserve a table. Outdoor smoking patio.

  • Prices

    Cover charge $3–$5, higher for special events. Beer $3–$6, cocktails $6–$10, shots $6–$10, champagne $40–$165/bottle, bottle service $150–$250.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    No dress code, but most patrons dress to impress: tight mini dresses, stiletto heels with matching clutches, flashy accessories, button-downs, fitted jeans, blazers.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Monday nights for the 80s music and free photo booth, and Saturday nights for the biggest crowd of sexy dancers on and off the dance floor.

  • Close By

    L'ardoise Bistro (151 Noe Street) is a swanky little French bistro perfect for fueling up on duck confit and chocolate banana bread pudding before dancing it off at Trigger.
