Chances are high that a night out clubbing is rare, if not completely extinct, since you've had children. Setting up a night out with the girls can be a great way to recapture some youth, a little bit of fun and get you out of the house for a while. If you’re looking for fun, high-energy and dancing on your night out, the best clubs in San Francisco are waiting to host your gaggle of gals.
There are a variety of club types in San Francisco. You can dance, groove to live music, laugh at a comedian or simply grab some drinks at the bar. Catching up with your girlfriends in the element of your choice is easy to do. A little bit of planning and a whole lot of excitement are sure to make your night out truly memorable.
Dance the Night Away
Dust off your dancing shoes. You can spend an evening at a number of San Fran’s nightclubs, each with a DJ primed to spin your favorites. Dancing the night away with your girlfriends is a great way to relief stress and forget about your worries – two things a mom needs once in a while.
Ruby Skye, on Mason Street, features modern, chic décor and DJs that keep the records spinning all night long. The building used to be a theater, which lends a lot of character to the space. 26 Mix, in the Mission District, caters to a slightly younger crowd. This dance club offers a wide mix of music, to keep you, and your fellow moms, grooving all night.
If live music is a bit more your speed, you may want to check out El Rio. El Rio is also located in the Mission District. This nightclub hosts everything from hip-hop nights to live-music cabarets. You can even find world music. Simply check the calendar on the El Rio website. If you’re feeling like an adventure, don’t check the calendar. Instead, just pop over and be surprised.
Hitting the Bar
If you’re a mom who doesn't want to be overwhelmed by large crowds and loud music, you’re probably going to feel more comfortable having a few drinks at a local eatery. Head over to the Tonga Room Hurricane Restaurant & Bar. It’s located in the Fairmont Hotel on Mason Street.
The Tonga Room is famous for its delicious Asian cuisine, vast drink menu and great atmosphere. Every 20 minutes you’ll be treated to a manufactured tropical storm, so you’ll feel like you've taken a vacation, without having left San Francisco. Happy House is bustling with a special buffet and tropical drinks.
What mom doesn't deserve a hearty laugh from time to time? Sure, your kids are funny, but you deserve some adult humor once in a while. Luckily, San Francisco has plenty of great comedy clubs.
The Punchline on Battery Street is a smaller club, but big names visit and laughs are aplenty. If you’re looking for a full bar and lots of tasty food choices, you may prefer a trip to Cobb’s Comedy Club, on Columbus Avenue. Big name headliners are regulars.
For fans of improvisational comedy, BATS Improve, on Fort Mason Center, is the place to be. They showcase a wide variety of improvisational theater in multiple genres.
With so many choices, you and your gals shouldn't have any trouble finding something to do on your free night. So, get a hold of your babysitter, because mama’s doing it old school.
