DNA Lounge

Live Performance in Downtown, Civic Center & SoMa

SF's reigning megaclub hosts bands, literary slams and big-name DJs, with two floors of late-night dance action just seedy enough to be interesting. Occasional Saturday mash-up party Bootie brings Justin/Justin (Bieber/Timberlake) jams; Fridays are Hubba-Hubba Burlesque revues and writers reading teenage diaries at Mortified; Mondays are usually Goth/industrial bands at 18-plus Death Guild. Check the calendar; early arrivals may hear crickets.

The attached pizza restaurant makes hangovers slightly less terrible.
