Located at the confluence of the Union Square, Tenderloin, and Mid-Market neighborhoods, the upscale 50 Mason Social House mostly shuns the latter two demographics in a bid to attract well-to-do travelers and moneyed downtown crowds. This former comedy club has reformulated itself as a fancy beer-and-wine establishment suffused with vintage-aristocrat ambience (e.g., dark leather furniture, chandeliers, a fireplace) that's notably at odds with the grimier outside surroundings. The beer list is similarly genteel, spotlighting small-batch microbrews with prices starting around $5 and going into double digits for some selections. At night, bands set up on the corner stage to play jazz, blues, roots rock, and more.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
