On the edge of Little Tokyo and the Arts District, this bar/restaurant sits in a location that I would have never just wandered into on my own. It's pretty inconspicuous and due to the name i probably would have thought it was a Forever 21 factory store or something, and moved on. Lucky for me, I happen to be a big fan of a certain review website where people love to spread the word about places just like this. So after a few beers at Wurstkuche, I stumbled in to see for myself. For the most part, I really liked it. I was impressed by the large beer selection and went very quickly with the Delirium. However, I was a bit turned off that they served it in red dixie cups. Although I appreciate the effort to make me feel like a young college student again, it didn't really seem like a nice fit with the otherwise pretty classy looking lounge. The bartender explained that they've had lots of breakage issues so they serve everyone in plastic after a certain time, and assured us he didn't profile his customers to see who seemed like the sloppier drunks before choosing what cup to use. I didn't love the look, but I did like the fact that I probably ended up getting more beer so I got over it. It was pretty empty on a Friday night, just a handful of groups drinking at the bar, watching the TV and not really dancing on the dancefloor. The music was good, but it was weird that the DJ was set up inside the actual vault for which the place is named. It's probably better for him as he can't get annoying requests for Kesha while playing his tunes behind glass, but I would think he would want to gauge the mood of the crowd more. My final complaint is that their kitchen was completely closed when were there ( I think at about 11). It'd be great if they offered some bar food selections - it definitely would have made us stay there longer! I'm curious to go back there for their dinner service, because I have a feeling it probably has a very different feel during meals. In any case, it's a nice stop in the area, and a welcome addition for when my Delirium cravings hit!

This review is based only on my clubbing experience . I did not have fun because of the crowd but this review is based on the venue itself . Yoshi's is pretty big and the decor is pretty nice . Great place to throw a big party or go clubbing at . This is definitely one of the better clubs in SF .

A really convenient place to shake my booty. My friends like it. It's within walking distance of my place. No $30 cover. A down to earth vibe. So maybe sometimes the DJ's suck and they don't mix like Paul Van Dyke. So what. After a hard week at work it's just what I need. I get really excited when they play "Poison" by Bel Biv Devoe!!!!
