Get Some: Seven Best Places to Hook Up in S.F.

Posted By on Tue, Jan 5, 2010 at 2:49 PM

1. Blackbird

Neighborhood bars are great because the bartenders can introduce you to the neighbor on the stool next to you. Plus in the back of the Blackbird, there is a photo booth for a little privacy. A neighborhood bar with a fun, friendly, flirty photo booth in the back: Say cheese. 2124 Market.

 2. The Cigar Bar

Is Bill Clinton still president? Clinton agrees, cigars are great pick-up props. But remember, don't inhale. 850 Montgomery.

3. The St. Regis Hotel

An insider from the Mrs Robinson Society  suggested the bar at the regal St. Regis. The best part about this adventure in hooking up is pretending you're an out-of-towner. Better yet, pick up someone visiting from out of town. Hopefully your weary corporate traveler will use their company credit card to get right down to "business." 125 Third Street.

4. The Make-Out Room.

It's called The Make-Out Room. 3225 22nd Street.

5. Any bar in the Marina.

The Marina was meant for bar crawling and wandering hands. Remember 1 in 4 people have herpes, and that statistic applies to people sporting Polo shirts and designer jeans too.

6. Le Colonial

You may have been too drunk to remember what really happened on the dance floor between sweaty hip hop songs, but we saw it all -- and it was you hooking up. Work the entire room first - this is a place you want to scope before you grope. 20 Cosmo.


7. The EndUp

Bars are closed, but you still have some "dance" left in you - do the techno tongue tango at The EndUp. The EndUp succeeds where booty texts fail. San Francisco bars may close at 2 am, but luckily for you and your libido the house music plays all night long at The EndUp. 401 Sixth Street.

  • 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.'"
