    It all depends on the crowed that night. I've had both the best and worst nights here. If you're a regular signup for the newsletter to get free guest list access.

    Great dance club where you can see popular DJs in the EDM scene. Buy tickets ahead if time and show up by 10 to avoid waiting in line. Beware, Thursdays are 18+. Oof!

    This place gets a bad rap mostly because of the crowd that comes here. That can be hit or miss but the talent that plays here is amazing. The sound system and light show is unmatched in SF.

    With some of the best artists in the world playing here, Ruby Skye has been transformed into one of the best clubs in the country! Not only is the music good but the location couldn't be any better!

    Bring ear plugs. This is the loudest place I've ever been and it gets louder throughout the night. I think one time is enough to damage your hearing, and I've been to a lot of clubs.

    This club is known for Electronic music. So if you enjoy electronic music, chances are that you will like this club. Club is pretty huge and it has a tight sound system.

    Night club is beautiful and sound quality is amazing. Saw Fatboy Slim, and it was the perfect venue in SF. Parking across for 20 bucks all night is a good deal in the area.

    Parking in Union Square is a pain but several sites let you make parking reservations online. Park Whiz and Gotta Park are just two examples. No guarantee on a busy night but it's worth a try. Read more

    This is THE venue to dance to legendary DJs in a huge and classy atmosphere. Make sure you visit 4fourteen (the remodeled smoking room) for some down time.

    This is definitely the best nightclub I've ever been to. The huge speakers will blow your mind away. They have two levels with an extra smoking room and a pool table. They also have the hottest people

    Start your night at the upstairs bar if you want to get some banter in. Once you get downstairs to see the show you won't be able to hold a conversation.

    Dancing AstronautSeptember 26, 2012
    Currently, no other SF venue books more top dance music DJs than Ruby Skye. On their 18+ TORQ Thursdays, make sure you keep all drinks & water upstairs -- the bouncers take their job very seriously.

    A winning bid at 6/23's Bachelor Auction entitles you to a man, yes. But also a date package (such as a limo ride to Sonoma, wine tastings, gourmet dinners...) Don't miss the after-party at Slide.

    Don't believe the hype! Come out and see for yourself. Expensive drinks, 2 level with a hip hop room on second level. Clean, nice and most good looking people.
