Misleading / deceptive ticket pricing
Oct 2020
Beware any events put on by Temple Nightclub... They are misleading and sneaky with their ticket pricing language and this may in fact be fraud.

For a DJ event my friends and I attended last week, the ticket sold on Eventbrite was for a booth of 6 for $250. The description said that this included food (fejoida) and $130 prepaid credit towards any other food/drinks our group spent while there.

After we got to the event, we were told that actually, there was a minimum $500 spend for our group (which was NOWHERE on the event page until they added it DURING or right before the event). To make things even worse, they said it was $500 ON TOP of the ticket price (so the original $250 didn't even count towards it)

Completely ridiculous. Do NOT trust this company at all. We want to support businesses during this difficult COVID time, but these kinds of tactics are completely without integrity.

Popular Night Club In SF
Aug 2019 • Friends
SF just doesn't have a good vibe for night clubs. The hot spot used to be The Grand, now Temple is the place to get bottle service. Yea, it's $2Gs , but Temple hostess do their best to make you feel like Vegas which is way more.The crowd is as hit or miss for coolness. It's not exactly London. But for SF, it's not bad considering your options.

I really like the atmosphere this place has to offer. It was nice to see people actually dancing. Plenty of friendly people to meet. I'm from Las Vegas and don't like the club scene. Temple was a breath of fresh air. Plus they got aside that sells hot dogs on the way to the basement. There are 3 different rooms with different styles of music. Check it out.

Refused entry
Jul 2018 • Solo
This place was supposed to be open until 4:00am but I arrived at 2:30 and was refused entry. The bouncer said that they stop letting people in at 1:30. I walked a long way to get there in the cold and braved the onslaught of crazed homeless bums for NOTHING. What a waste of time.

Treated Horribly, Never Returning.
Mar 2017 • Friends
Had the worst possible time here, NEVER coming back. My friend and I purchased tickets online to see a performance, and 15 minutes in, he was kicked out while dancing with me. There was no notice, we still don't know what he did wrong, but four very large and intimidating men took him out a back door.

When I finally found him outside, the bouncers wouldn't let me back in to retrieve my jacket, literally leaving me out in the cold. Luckily someone else inside was able to grab it for me.

We tried to gain re-entry and were barred, we asked for ticket refund and were refused.

This was an incredibly frustrating event, and I will never go back or refer someone to visit here. Terrible experience.

good place to chill at downtown
Feb 2017 • Friends
Pretty decent and nice place at downtown to chill on weekends.
the ambience of the bar is very attractive. More crowds and vibrant to mix around but you need to join the queue at least 10 PM on Friday night to enter at 11 PM. Overall I enjoyed here.

A little but of Vegas in SF
Nov 2016 • Couples
It's San Francisco's attempt at a Vegas club. Unfortunately, you have the clubbing-lame San Francisco crowd going there, low eye candy percentage, go-home-early lameness/leaving only shady people as night progresses syndrome. They have good DJs so if you are into the music - go on ahead. But don't come here expecting NY/LA club vibe as far as humans go. I hate to be such an elitist but one must be faithful to the setting - just too much of a bridge/tunnel crowded vibe to it.

I've been twice, once as a random proletariat wanderer being pushed around as the place got full, hating the crowds, unable to find a place to stand for any extended period of time, enjoying the lights, music and glowing-festooned costume performers wandering the club and acting a part; the other time as a member of a group that had the rockstar blow-$3Gs-in-one-night VIP table in the corner above all the fray. I have to give it to the staff in making VIP spendige worth it, for those of flasy ego, with a lit-up "W E L C O M E" sign, each letter held up by a staff member as we approached our table; with the glowing Chinese parade dragon that came and slithered into our table area and made us feel so special; and with the DJ who, with a bottle of Jagermeister, moseyed on over to our table and gave us shots. Their waitresses were also very nice and attentive, always pouring our drinks for us whenever our glasses neared empty. The queen manager of the tables was also nice, remembering me from my previous visit: impressive given how many faces she probably sees every night.
I wish I was 18 again and into just the music because I would love dancing here for hours. Unfortunately the lounge lizard in me also tends to focus on the quality of people. These two things always need to go together to make a club. The problem with this place, and many clubs like it, comes from the high-concentrations of single ethnic and socioeconomic clustering and not a nice diverse mix. Then add to that the advent of places like the Battery that is sucking all the well-heeled partygoer oxygen out of the scene and you have a problem San Francisco. When you go out and kill brain cells you want BOTH good music and chic,fun people that don't leave early and thereby avoid turning the place into a shady club after 1:00 AM. Unfortunately this is difficult to make this work here in the city. I have to at least give Temple some credit for trying.

Go early
Nov 2016
the place is very nice 2 floors , one was Hip Hop, the other was rave music

you pay a 30$ cover just to enter which I find expensive ,

if you decide you can afford that then make sure you are there early max by 10 as all legal clubs here stops serving alcohol by 2 am strict

What an awful experience
Jul 2016 • Couples
Attended this nightclub last night & it was truly a terrible experience. Paid a $20 admission fee, & after paying $10 for a cheap vodka with watered down Cranberry juice went to the smoking area for a cigarette. We were allowed into the smoking area with our drinks but when we were going back inside the bouncer called us back & said to finish our drinks there.. when I asked him why as we just bought them before we went out, he didn't answer so I walked away, he grabbed me, grabbed my drink & crushed the plastic glass. What a horrific experience. Will never go back there again. The bouncers are complete bullies.
