Nightclub Scene""

DJ Music

SF's club scene is concentrated in the SoMA (South of Market), a former industrial district where top DJs perform electronic music well past 2 am.
  • • The DNA lounge is an old storage warehouse with the best late night Music: Oldies to rock/techno (SoMA).
  • • The Mezzanine combines elite clubbing with the city's laid-back attitude. The dance floor is usually packed, but the upstairs lounge is the place to relax (SoMA).
  • • The Endup is the after-hours venue that has world-class dance music attracting a diverse mix of people. The club also features a fireplace, an outdoor deck and a patio with waterfall (SoMA).

Intimate Clubs

  • For a different kind of scene take a 10-minute cab ride to the newly revitalized Mission where some of the city's most hip and trendy residents hang out.
  • • El Rio is a unique bar that everyone enjoys. Weekend nights fill the room with high-energy dancers and the outdoor patio with a melting pot of people (Mission).
  • • The Make-Out Room offers vintage décor and a decidedly hipster crowd where live bands and DJs perform for the neighborhood's casual but sexy folk (Mission).
  • Don't forget your photo ID and check the minimum age to enter the establishment.

A show to suit all tastes

Tip: Same-day rush tickets usually available.

  • • Golden Gate Theatre: Broadway shows.
  • • Exit Theatre: Independent establishment presents small-scale local troupes.
  • • Magic Theatre: Musicals on tour and contemporary plays (Fisherman's Wharf).
  • • SF Symphony, Ballet and Opera are highly regarded - SF is the only West Coast city feat uring all three.
