Every first Saturday of the month, the Elbo Room has a soul music party. DJs play amazing 60's soul while the dance floor is covered with dancers. It's a lot of fun, especially if you are into soul gems.
Dress Code: Some people dress up, it's not required, but it makes things more fun. You will see a lot of people dressed in vintage wear.
UPDATED- Cheb i Sabbah has moved AGAIN to the Underground. He used to be at Nickie's BBQ on Haight- my favorite place to go dancing.
On Thursday nights, , DJ Cheb i Sabbah hosts an international night-prescussion and beat heavy African, Latin, Indian, and Arabic music. Come groove to Rachid Taha, Tabla Beat Science, bhangra, filmi mixes, Baaba Maal, bhangra, Natacha Atlas, Khaled, samba, and other great music.
The crowd is a mix of regulars and new people who've heard Chebi-ji's excellent mixing. It's friendly and unpretentious. The music really gets going after 10pm and doesn't stop till 2am.

This cocktail lounge has a DJ booth in the back. It's small and the drinks are stiff, but the local crowd is lively and friendly; plenty of dancing goes on on the small dance floor. They are closed on Mondays.

San Francisco doesn't go to sleep when the sun goes down. There are plenty of activities no matter what age group or interest. If you are looking to relax in a jazz club or dance to the latest dance music you are in luck. You will also find live entertainment, special events, theatre, movies and performing art are all on the menu.
There's a cool salsa bar at 3140 Mission St (cross street is 34th) called 'Roccapulco'. They have a big band and lots of dancing space and a balcony area to just watch. It costs $15 to get in, but the music and atmosphere are great.
Come visit us at Nickies in the lower Haight (x Fillmore) Nickies has your vibe happening whether it's Funk, 70's, reggae, or San Francisco sound. Mondays are my favorite. Doesn't start 'till after 10 pm. Join us.
Dress Code: Tie Dye on Monday, wear what you want, get your groove on.
If you're coming to SF and you're GAY, then there's a lot for you to do at night. One of the best places to start out is the CAFE, a good place for vanilla gay guys. There's a small dance floor, some decent music (I guess) and LOTS of people watching going on.
Easy-going atmosphere, no smoking, gay boys galore (high twink quotient)
Dress Code: casual, jeans, khakis, nothing too crazy. it gets VERY hot inside, wear a t-shirt.
"One of the coolest neighborhood nightclubs – its intimate setting and solid lineups make it a good choice for clubbing any night of the week."-- citysearch.
This is a great place to let it loose and Samba. A giant party, relaxed atmosphere, dancing girls and great live music.
Dress Code: Get in the Carnaval Spirit!
Plays 80's Brit-Pop. Also if your lucky you'll see Vespa's parked outside. They are from a local Vespa group/club called the Cavalier's very "euro".
Dress Code: Dress the part.
