Best Place for a Romantic Spin Around the Dance Floor - 2001
Top of the Mark
There's something classy about Old San Francisco, something that's worth giving up a place in line at the new dance club. Assuming, of course, that it's romance you're after. The 62-year-old Top of the Mark is just a downright lovely venue, with its panoramic views of the city and classic cocktail tables. Live music wafts from the stage every night of the week, including jazz and swing from some of the city's classic bands, as well as from new faces. Regardless of who's playing, there's ample room on the dance floor, where you can spin your sweetie into a swoon. Admission is $8 Sunday through Thursday, and $10 on weekend evenings. There is a dress code, thankfully, which prohibits the tourists from showing up in shorts, sweats, jeans, tennis shoes, or sandals.
