In the '70s and early '80s, the Trocadero Transfer was one of the best gay clubs in San Francisco. It had superior sound, forward-thinking DJs from New York and Miami, and an atmosphere that — if the stories are to be believed — has yet to be surpassed by anyone here since. Sadly, though, the space that housed the Trocadero has been in near-constant decline since the club's closure in the '90s. The Grand is perhaps the best iteration of the room yet, though it's a complete change: For people with a lot of disposal income to burn, it tops a shortlist of places in the city offering a full-on Las Vegas-style club experience, complete with magnums of Dom Pérignon, venue-employed booth babes, and impressively intense C02 cannons. The venue's switch from gay counterculture mecca to a haven for young money is the tech boom in a nutshell.
