Next to parent restaurant Foreign Cinema, Laszlo, an industrial-style bar, is one of those San Francisco clubs that is well suited to its location, set as it is amongst the post-industrial structures of the Mission District. Although within the same building as the restaurant, Lazslo manages to have an identity all its own. Early in the evenings, it will still be empty and quiet enough to talk over a cocktail and even order in starters from Foreign Cinema. Later, a cover charge, queue, loud music and droves of Mission nightlifers transform the scene. Laszlo is pre-lounge, so don’t expect an Italian sofa to drape yourself across or much room to dance. This is a drink and schmooze and groove-in-one-place kind of space.
