Alcatraz Night Tour

Alcatraz Island : Every Mon., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun.

Alcatraz -- "The Rock" -- is one of those tours that you have to take at least once, whether you're local or just visiting. The abandoned prison sitting on an island about a mile and a half off the city's north shore was home to some of the most infamous names in crime, including Al Capone, it... More >>

Secret Improv Society

Shelton Theater : 10:00 p.m. every Sat.

This city's theater scene is chock-full of improv. Whether you're new to it or a grizzled veteran, you won't have to hunt too long to find a venue. Each Friday and Saturday night, the Shelton Theatre hosts its own brand of "secret" improv theater. The stage at the Shelton has given such... More >>

Hayes Valley/ Tenderloin Arts, Comedy

Beginning Tribal Belly Dance

ODC Dance Commons : 7:30 p.m. every Wed.; 1:00 p.m. every Sat.

Jill Parker's Beginning Tribal Belly Dance classes are a classic San Francisco experience: They're welcoming, weird, diverse, sweaty, trance-inducing, and somehow simultaneously straight and gay. Some students love to feel they're in a place where it's OK to actually have a belly, some come to... More >>

"Love Will Fix It"

The Hot Spot : 10:00 p.m. second Sat. of every month

"It's no secret anymore! I've always been a little black girl trapped in the body of a big white bear — and now I'm letting her out!" says local disco DJ Bus Station John.

Hayes Valley/ Tenderloin Music, Nightlife, LGBT Events

Meow Mix

The Stud : 11:00 p.m. every Tue.

We like our gay bars like we like our women — rough around the edges and with as little cover as possible. With its bordello-esque atmosphere and cheap drinks, it's no surprise that The Stud, one of the city's oldest gay bars, still reigns supreme. Sure, it can be a little cramped, and... More >>

South of Market Nightlife, LGBT Events, Cabaret and Drag


Madrone Art Bar : 9:00 p.m. third Sat. of every month

Ever wish you were on the set of your favorite indie music video, dancing in a meadow with flowers and half-naked hipsters surrounding you? Well, good, we don't either. It's much more preferable to live out this indie dancing fantasy in a small club, where shots are pouring and pollen allergies... More >>

SOMArts Cultural Center : Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until April 24

In 1972, Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro, co-founders of CalArts' Feminist Art Program, turned a dilapidated Hollywood mansion into "Womanhouse," a space transformed by the creations of nearly 30 young female artists.

Toshio Hirano

Amnesia : 9:00 p.m. second Mon. of every month

Toshio Hirano is a time- and continent-jumping troubadour. He grew up in Tokyo, coming of age when the American folk revival was also hitting Japan, but a chance listen to a Sunday afternoon radio program introduced him to the sound of southern Appalachia. Fast-forward through moves to... More >>

Friday Nights at the de Young

de Young Museum : 5:00 p.m. every Fri. until November 28

Pair a great museum with a few cocktails and you've pretty much attained the pinnacle of the high-culture experience.

16th and Mission Poetry Slam

16th St. BART Station : 9:00 p.m. every Thu.

Sometimes, we need a little bit more than just poetry and music. Sometimes we have the urge to witness a wild-eyed man with one sweater sleeve missing shove pieces of paper into a coconut and then set it on fire - all while someone yells about why bird porn is a serious issue. The 16th &... More >>

"Radical Vinyl: Gay/Not Gay"

El Rio : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.

No other sexually ambiguous club night wears its Kierkegaardian handle quite as well as Gay/Not Gay. Guests walking into El Rio on a Monday evening immediately succumb to a meltdown of libidinal uncertainty and psychological ambiguity. Fortunately, DJs Mrs. Robinson and Jenny Hoyston spin a...

More than 32 food trucks will pull up to Fort Mason for Friday night’s Off the Grid Food Truck Party. Off the Grid is sort of like a food court for nomads, gatherings of extreme culinary variety, with live music and full bars. If you get there early enough, you’ll be able to snack... More >>

Kirk Maxson: Foraging

Eleanor Harwood Gallery : Every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 10

We did it. We've survived another winter, another annoying time change, and made it to yet another spring. In honor of the loveliest of all the seasons, Eleanor Harwood Gallery hosts artist Kirk Maxson, whose large "beautiful, delicate, and ethereal" installations are made of hundreds of... More >>

Jemima Kirke: Platforms

Fouladi Projects : Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 10

If beauty lies in symmetry, then Jemima Kirke's models lack it, at least by her rendering. With mismatched eyes, crooked noses and deep scowl lines, to call her portraits of these women "quirky" is an understatement and trivialization. The title of her show, Platforms, references not only the... More >>

"Music Video Night"

Madrone Art Bar : 10:00 p.m. second Sat. of every month

Sometimes music alone isn't enough, and for those, Music Video Night is here to help. Every second Saturday, Madrone transforms into a videothèque, complete with projections of classic music videos blended by local veteran DJ 4AM. Nothing too complex, just plain-old... More >>

Hillbilly Hootenanny West Side Revue

The Riptide : 7:30 p.m. first Sun. of every month

The Outer Sunset is typically known for only a few things: surfing and fog. But recently the neighborhood has experienced a small revitalization in the form of local hotspots like Trouble Coffee, General Store, and Outerlands. This isn't to say that the area's long-established locales are going... More >>

California Academy of Sciences : 6:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. every Thu.

It doesn't get more sophisticated than a cocktail in one hand and no children in sight. Add some jellyfish, dim lights, and a second cocktail in the other hand and you've got NightLife at the Academy of Sciences held every Thursday night from 6-10 p.m. The evening caters specifically to the 21+...

Chantey Sing

Hyde Street Pier : 8:00 p.m. first Sat. of every month

Truss up your breeches for this one: The ships down at Fisherman's Wharf are well known to children and tourists, but once a month, in the dead of night, locals creep to the C.A. Thayer and the Balclutha. For 20 years, the National Parks Service has hosted the Chantey Sing on these two... More >>

Family Kayak Trip

South Beach Harbor : 11:00 a.m. every Sat., Sun.

If Hollywood ever tries its hand at Escape from San Francisco, we hope there are kayaks involved. There just aren’t enough kayaks in action films, you know? We imagine the little boats riding a tsunami, hurtling toward the bad guys who have taken Coit Tower hostage, somehow managing to... More >>

"The Bump"

John Colins : 10:00 p.m. third Sat. of every month

While many students work their way through college serving coffee or giving lap dances, Julio Galvez, aka The Whooligan, spent his years rubbing shoulders with Ghostface Killah and hosting hip-hop appearances at S.F's Amoeba Music.

Beach Blanket Babylon

Club Fugazi : Every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun.

Every San Franciscan has a list of local activities they haven't done that the average visitor to this city probably has.
