Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

San Francisco

Elbo Room
Whether you want Acid Jazz, Afrofunk or Indie Rock, Elbo Room delivers every day of the week.
Skylark
Skylark invites you to let your hair down, pick up a total stranger and have the mother of all hangovers the next day.
Dogpatch Saloon
Live jazz almost every night at this Portrero Hill dive.
Milk
Located in the heart of the Haight, Milk covers the DJ experience from a different perspective, specialising in dance-ready hip-hop, soul and funk, as opposed to the more Euro-centric spin that's dished up at places like Pink and Sublounge.
Madrone Lounge
Styled as an art bar, Madrone draws a casual crowd who come to chill on its mismatched couches and listen to DJ sets.
Lexington Club
Butch and femme out of central casting mingle and drink in this low-key neighbourhood bar where 20-something lesbians come to meet each other and play pool.
Boom Boom Room
A high quality blues and jazz bar seven nights a week.
Punchline Comedy Club
Historic comedy club that has seen the likes of Robin Williams, Ellen DeGeneres and Chris Rock grace its stage.
Swig
Thirty-somethings crowd in to this neighbourhood live music club for great gigs.
Club Six
Slightly raggedy, but anything goes at this hip-hop and world music club.
Martuni’s
Neighbourhood piano bar where a cast of colourful locals take the stage.
Fillmore Auditorium
Who's in the crowd depends on the act, but this red velvet-clad venue is always a classic.
