"If you're bored, you're boring." I'm totally biased. I love Supperclub, because it is, uniquely, San Francisco. The stark white interior and the rows of beds are clinically clean, but warm at the same time. (But that may depend upon which show ; ) They offer an amazing menu of yummy food, in an atmosphere that ranges from chill and too cool for school, to warm & silly, to sexy, seductive and sinful. What's not to like? Good music, good food, good drinks and a floor show that may be hit or miss, but at least they're taking the risk. I'm just sitting on my fat ass, in bed, enjoying the spectacle & being in the moment. Either way, you have a story & a new experience to share with your friends, now, don't you? Even you sad little people with your one lonely star, for whatever reason, still posted your lil' story up on rateclub, didn't you? Additionally, Supperclub is a community involved space. They employ, donate and strive diligently to support San Francisco nightlife and it's community. If you're not into the steamy, seamy, kinky side of the Bay, this isn't for you. If you are, Supperclub is always a titillating, indulgent and fun night out. Also, if you're going there on a freakin' 'Groupon', don't expect to be wowed. Duh.

Kind of torn about writing this review, so I'll just list my personal pros and cons. - Unless you're one of those "I come 5 mins before the main act" people, you're gonna wait. A lot. We came for doors at 9, and there was already a line down the street. Then we waited for what seemed like an hour to actually get in the doors. The main act didn't go on until midnight. Maybe I'm an old fogey, but that seemed really late to me? + At least we were able to do our waiting in the upstairs lounge, in which they've got pretty comfy leather couches. That made it a little better, but dag, I could sit on the couch at home. - Naturally, the couch we sat on was right under an air vent, so it was effing freezing. I can't complain too terribly much bc I get that crowded spaces need air circulation, but holy eff I was absolutely freezing. + The view from the 2nd floor is not too shabby. It's a little obstructed due to the concrete pillars on the main floor, but if you don't like being smooshed on the main floor, it's a nice getaway without too much sacrifice. - The 2nd floor also has roped off tables for bottle service. I can't hate on Mezzanine, because all of the tables were actually full of groups of people buying $200+ bottles of champagne, etc, but I just wish they weren't so big. They take up a lot of space, and at least at the show I was at, most of the groups were only around 3 people. Some of them even had the space to lie down lengthwise on the couches. + The bathrooms were really clean for a music venue, huzzah! - The sound mixing left something to be desired. The bass was a little too high (and I like BASSSSSSS), and it was really distorted. It really killed the sound quality and the whole point of going to shows. Chances are, I'll be back, as I love shows. But if I had it my way, there are a few tweaks I'd make to improve the experience juuuuuust a lil' bit.

Went on a saturday night. Kind of bougie. Luckily we had the hookups so it was free and no waiting in line!! =p but... the music was kind of whack. too much top 40 for my taste. And all these gross guys who would walk past me and my friends and think they could just touch us for the hell of it. please. supposedly this place is supposed to look like an airport hence the name, LAX... I don't get it. No more LAX for me on saturday nights. It's just not my steeze. Too much bouginess for me! ****EDIT 4/2/07 Okay so sometimes LAX has pretty cool djs coming around... I have a lot of friends who come around too... So sundays are coo...
