Big Heart City often goes unnoticed. That's not just an IHOP across from the Metreon, but a pretty large nightclub. At the entrance, Big Heart City resembles a grand old hotel lobby with its Art Deco chandeliers and long, polished wooden bar. To the side is a lounge outfitted with low-set antique couches; the only things here that don't scream "1920s" are the big-screen video monitors mounted on either wall. Further back is a spacious wooden dance floor, perfect for some serious getting down. Upstairs is a large wrap-around lounge, where clubbers can watch the action below.
Dress Code Big Heart City's party roster is constantly changing and always varied. Depending on the night, you'll find everything from hoochie house soirees to bondage and goth parties. It's a good idea to call before showing up, or you could feel out of place with that whip and leather corset.
Do you like it when people chain you to the bed? Do you like to be whipped? Then this is for you. Well, I've only been here once and that was and accident and a looooong story. It's not really my thing, but it may be yours. They play industrial/Goth music and have been voted the best theme club by the readers SF Weekly for the past five years, It's not a gay club... they call themselves a pansexual club. That means straight, gay, bi, trannies all show up at some point or another.
Dress Code It's not require that you dress up in the black leather and carry a whip... but a lot of people do.
You also have to be 21 to get in, or so they say. The cover is 5 bucks before 23:00 and 7 after
This is a very popular spot and as time goes on, so will the queues... The later you get there, the longer you wait. It opens at 17:00 and closes at 2:00. It really starts to pick up around 23:00 or so.
The entire place is red, hence the name. Oh, and while you're there you might want to get a Cosmopolitans... it's known for them.
Dress Code This tends to cater to the business class of SanFran and is therefore upscale. If you are not dressed up to their standards you will NOT be let in.
Just north of Chinatown, lots of bars and restaurants line the streets of Columbus, and if you go far enough east, you'll find some dodgy-looking strip joints too. If that's your thing, this could be the place.
Dress Code Whatever gets you going.
Just walked by ,did not go there ,but it was a gentlemen club and I am sure that the gentlemen enjoyed themselves.
