The Scene

Located just steps from the historic Haight-Ashbury intersection, Club Deluxe is a throwback to a time very different from the 1960s counterculture the Haight is best known for.

Located just steps from the historic Haight-Ashbury intersection, Club Deluxe is a throwback to a time very different from the 1960s counterculture the Haight is best known for.

Instead of political slogans and free love, this jazz and pizza joint is a hub for Kennedy-era pleasures like artisan cocktails and bebop, with vintage leather stools, high-backed booths, Picasso prints, and old photographs creating a nostalgic vibe in the bar and dining room.

With its early-60s motif, the club might have been a place for Don Draper to unwind with a highball had he found himself in the Bay, but today the venue attracts a modern crowd of well-dressed local youths dropping by for fresh cocktails or a slice of gourmet pie.

Middle-aged hepcats also join the mix, drawn by the sort of authentic improvisational music that’s otherwise scarce in the Haight, though the venue also plays host to stand-up comics, burlesque dancers, and traditional blues performers. On Fridays and Saturdays, however, it’s all about the jazz, and the place gets lively – yet rarely rowdy – even before the local acts take the small stage, and the dance floor fills with eager fans.

For discerning night owls yearning for the sharp bite of a well-made Bloody Mary, a Neapolitan slice, or the dizzying blast of a nimble horn, Club Deluxe delivers it all with just the right dash of dapper.

Tip from Jonah:

Fans of The Big Lebowski take note: this place makes a mean White Russian, with cream whipped fresh right at the bar.

  • Crowd

    Jazz aficionados, young hipsters and students, couples out for a romantic evening, and tourists getting their first taste of the Haight’s varied social scene, 20s to 40+.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Local bands play jazz several nights a week. Stand-up comedy on Mondays, blues/Americana on Sundays, burlesque every second Thursday. Otherwise, ambient classic jazz and occasional 1950s crooner tracks.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Traditional Neapolitan pizza served Tu–Su from 4pm. Happy Hour M–F 4–9pm. Pizza making classes available; contact venue to schedule a class. Cash only. ATMs nearby.

  • Prices

    Cover charge $5–$10 (normally Fridays only). Pizza $16–$20. Beer $3–$6, cocktails and specialty drinks $5–$12.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Nice casual: dark slacks, dark shirts, dark sports jackets, lots of fedoras.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Any night there’s a live performance of interest, and Saturdays after 9:30pm when the bar is the most packed and the audience the most energetic.

  • Close By

    Amoeba Records (1855 Haight Street) carries a huge selection of jazz, blues, and every other type of music, available in vinyl and modern formats.

Club Deluxe User Reviews

The best date on Haight Street.
Alexandra M. Apr 2, 2013
True to its name, this jazz lounge has all the fixin's for a luxurious evening -- Haight Street style, that is. Live jazz, top-shelf spirits, and gourmet pizza are at your fingertips in this cozy jazz club. Low-lit and cozied up near the kitchen, the bar is as warm and embracing as a good scotch. Speaking of scotch, you can find a range of libations between $5 and $20 per shot. If you spring for one of the pricier drinks, your bartender is likely to chat with you about its character for a few minutes while pouring your drink. In my experience, Club Deluxe bartenders are patient and amiable. If the music hasn't started yet, snag a seat and order a pizza. No slices here, folks: you've no choice but to order an entire pie. Trust me -- after some strong drinks from the bar, you'll be impatiently awaiting your thin crust pizza, generously adorned with toppings like ricotta and herbed sausage. If sippin' your drink, nibblin' your pizza, and kissin' your date isn't enough, wait for warm jazz tones to start waftin' into your ears. The music changes nightly, but it's always lively and authentic. If you frequent Club Deluxe enough, you're likely to experience moments of true artistry in the intimate, unpretentious lounge. Overall, Club Deluxe is a perfect choice for a classy-yet-inexpensive night out in the city. Take a date -- whether it's your boyfriend, girlfriend, or yourself -- to this classic Haight Street haunt.
Free live jazz music... need I say more?

Some of the best jazz musicians in the Bay Area call this spot home. Because of its cozy quarters — the stage barely elevates the drummer and bass player above the audience, while other members of the band often stand on the ground — even the fans feel like a part of what makes the music so enticing. I have never heard a bad musician step through those doors, and with often times no cover charge, this place is a live music bargain that can’t be found many other places in San Francisco. Music aside, the food and drinks are also a reason for visiting this Haight Street nook. Their greyhounds are made from real grapefruits, freshly squeezed at the bar. And for a place without a ton of space, there’s plenty of seating. My favorite: one of the booths at the front, where you can squeeze in with some friends and allow the music to distract you until close.
One of the most unique bars in San Francisco.
Dan B. Feb 23, 2013
Club Deluxe has a classy vibe that hit me the first time I pulled back the drape at the front door. One is immediately struck by the neon lighting and mirror behind the bar, which gives off a night-clubby feel. There are no distracting televisions mounted on the wall, and the music tends to be quiet enough that you can have a conversation without having to yell. Long lines and mad crowds are rare, and Deluxe features quality live music (jazz, bossa nova, roots) for a mere five dollar cover several nights a week. To get the full experience, you can sit in one of the VIP booths directly across from the stage, or in one of the tables off to the side. Or you can sit on the other side of the venue near the bar, while pleasant music plays in the background. Club Deluxe is a great place to bring friends from out of town who like their bars subtle, tasteful, and relaxing.
Cheap
Rachel G. Nov 21, 2012
I like this place because it's cheap and has good foo, but this isn't one of my favorite places to go. It's right next to Crossroads where I use to work on Haight street. We use to go there after work for some drinks and food, but it's never been anything particularly special for me. Another bust is there is a cover charge, but we never paid since we knew everyone that worked there. One thing I do like about this place is the live music. No matter what the music is I love being around live music and bands. That is what makes the atmosphere here great, the live music.
