The New Clubs (Are Actually Bars)

I received the latest copy of San Francisco Magazine in the mail today, in which I have a story on the latest trend in nightlife- retro-opulent design bars with demoted dancefloors. In San Francisco, some of the hot new spots opened recently are:
  • Harlot (Bordello theme)
  • Slide (Speakeasy theme)
  • Etiquette (Victorian-bondage theme)
  • Ambassador (Rat Pack theme)
Another interesting note is venues that are more crowded and clubby, such as Harlot and Etiquette, have a specialty cocktail menu at happy hour that they then hide at night when there isn't time for muddling and squeezing fresh juice.
