Hg2 : The Hedonist

SF Badlands

If you want to dance without irony to a Madonna single while you watch the video at the same time, the majority of San Francisco nightclubs offer you nothing, but gay club SF Badlands is the place to go, maybe even in the afternoon! Weekends bring lines and every day brings a crowd for unabashed pop top 40 worship. Think of it as a gay wedding, where you can get funky on the dance floor with your Uncle Ed after an early dinner, then get a beer and relax next to a flower arrangement. If lines on Friday and Saturday keep you away, try a Thursday or Sunday night. Even if you’re a gal or not gay, you can still have fun here with the young and hunky. Like any truly kitsch San Francisco gay club should, Badlands comes complete with mirrored disco ball, dance music and – of course – plenty of hunky men to pick up. Sunday afternoon is the best time to drop by, sip a beer, cruise the talent, and dance.
