My best friend and I will be in San Francisco in May...can you recommend some FUN places to go at night? Ideally, we'd like to avoid (like the plague) the early 20s crowd. We'd also like to avoid the pretentious people. A hoppin' place with 30ish fun people where we could flail about would be perfect. Or several such places...we're neither goth nor hip hop. Just reg-a-lar. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

1. Re: Nightlife

check out http://sanfrancisco.citysearch.com

They have descriptions of each place.

Avoid Jelly's, Kelly's Mission Rock, Blondies, Redwood Room.. Anything bar near Union Street, and Bubble Lounge. They have pretencious people there.

If you like Jazz, and dancing, and you don't mind the bar/dance being a little seedy... then Boom Boom Room on Saturday.

If you're there on Thursday, go to 330 Ritch.

They have BRIT-POP night called POPSCENE... People like to dance there. Sometimes there are bands too.

Check to see if ANY BANDS are playing in our city when you come. Good places to see bands are:

Great American Music Hall

The Fillmore


Bottom of the Hill
