Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

San Francisco

111 Minna Gallery
Art gallery meets nightclub.
Biscuits & Blues
Every kind of blues you can imagine at this cellar speakeasy.
Boom Boom Room
A high quality blues and jazz bar seven nights a week.
Café du Nord
Genuine Prohibition era speakeasy with mahogany bar and live swing bands.
DNA Lounge
Dance-all-night geek-chic club brought to you by a dot-com tycoon.
EZ5
Part nightclub, part boudoir, and part retro Chinese love den.
Fillmore Auditorium
Who's in the crowd depends on the act, but this red velvet-clad venue is always a classic.
Great American Music Hall
One of the most ornate live music venues in San Fran.
Laszlo
This pre-lounge bar is all about drink and schmooze and groove-in-one-place.
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.
Martuni’s
Neighbourhood piano bar where a cast of colourful locals take the stage.
MatrixFillmore
A bit of a meet-market, here's one singles bar that does not harken to its roots as a rock club.
Mezzanine
Gritty, ultra-urban Mezzanine is a 12,000-square-foot slice of the promised land for the serious, no-bridge-and-tunnel-folk-allowed dance crowd, boasting one of the best sound systems in the city and attracting A-list DJs spinning underground h
Mighty
For those who remember the punk era, Mighty evokes the edgy glory days of underground dance clubs on an epic scale.
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.
Rosewood
Sleek uber-hip bar with a delicious garden.
Slide
The local party crowd loves to make a dramatic entrance. What slicker way to hit the dance floor than via a 15-foot serpentine slide?
Swig
Thirty-somethings crowd in to this neighbourhood live music club for great gigs.
Truck
The antithesis to the Castro's cheesier bump-and-grind nightclubs, Truck lures a chill out gay crowd with strong drinks, decent bar snacks, a pool table, and pretty boys.
Yoshi’s
Yoshi's unique restaurant offers Japanese cuisine with a side of jazz.
