If you're in the mood for an amazing, sweaty good time, MJQ will not disappoint. Such a diverse crowd & any night you go, there's some sort of theme... I'm partial to Sloppy Seconds hosted the second Saturday of every month. This is not your standard "club" at all... words can't even describe the sketchiness of it all. I just love it!

once again for me i was introduced to this place by my ex-gf who is korean and if it wasnt for her i would have never known it existed. its location is on the corner of 32nd and 5th 3 floors up with NO advertising. people walk by the commercial building everyday without even knowing the place exits and i guess thats what partially gives it it's allure. the first time we enter the lobby of this building where ud never think that a lounge would be we get into this TINY elevator and the door opens to a cool and hip lounge. the set up is long and narrow with a beautiful bar lots of couches and tables to the left to eat and drink. there's also a dj and the music varies. great place to just relax and nibble on some food and drink. the crowd is mostly korean but is english speaking friendly. great place to take a bunch of people or to bring a date.

I'm crazy about the red-velvet interior and the tuxxed-out bartenders--a very cool throwback to 1950s Vegas, baby. Thanks to the terraced tables & booths, there is a great unobstructed view of the dance floor and stage. Three friends and I got to Bimbo's around 8:30 for a 9pm show and were lucky to find an empty/unreserved table, so get there early to claim a seat, and watch out for the crazy female usher who's likely to go bipolar on you while she's helping you get seated. Their drink prices are reasonable, considering my drinks were strong and delish. As for the two-drink minimum, it didn't look like they were enforcing it at all when I was there. The restroom attendants will gladly hold your drink while you're in the stall--who even does that these days? As everyone filed out at the end of the night, my friends and I were still at our table and were kind of straggling. Lo and behold, the bouncers ask you to leave POLITELY (what an F-ing concept! a sharp contrast to my terrible experience at Suede) Thank you, Bimbo's, for restoring my faith in SF nightlife!
