Best San Francisco Clubs with Free Guest List

Today, were off to check out some of the best clubs in San Francisco that offer a free Guest List! DISCLAIMER ALERT: Before we begin, I have to inform the readers of TWO very important things.

First, know that not every one of these venues will always have free guest list for an event. Depending on who’s performing, there may not be a guest list for that night, even if there has been free Guest List 10 nights before.

Second, not every guest list that’s offered will be free. Even if a Guest List was free Friday, it may not be Satruday. More often then not, depending on who’s performing, the Guest List is subject to change.

So how do you check to see Guest List details? Discotech has made this difficult and tedious process easy and simple. So, are you still looking for the best clubs offering free Guest List in San Francisco? Now you can see upcoming events, sign up for guest list and book table service directly on the free Discotech Mobile App. Or reach out to our helpline directly at 4157356716 – we can help you pick a spot for your next night out in San Francisco.

As you may already know, these lists are in alphabetical order, not ranking order. That way we can provide details and pictures and let you decide which club most appeals to you. So, to find your next favorite free spot in San Francisco, look no further. Here we go!

The Grand

Inspired by the Vegas experience, San Francisco’s The Grand is attempting to bring Sin City to the Bay. It starts when you get there, the massive multi-story, columned facade, lit up with spotlights and long lines. On entering you’ll see the white-leather padded bar, flanked by seating, and leading into the dark, wood-floored main room, with a good-sized dance floor headed by the DJ booth.

VIP/bottle service areas dot the downstairs, with plenty of seating and tables. The upstairs mezzanine area features more VIP sections, its own bar and its own restrooms. The bathrooms at The Grand are known as some of the best and cleanest in club land. The décor is modern and sleek, lots of gold accents, black, crimson and mahogany. The Grand tries to set itself apart from the crowd on production value.

From the Funktion One sound system and the elaborate lighting rig, to the bubble and confetti machines, foam, lightsticks, and balloons, to the acrobatic performances and a 30,000 LED light ball in the center of the room, and you definitely get the atmosphere.

Not the sort of place that draws on big-name talent to bring the crowds, most nights you’ll find established locals and smaller national names, with the occasional big event to keep things interesting (think Dirty Vegas, or “The World’s Sexiest DJ” & Playboy Magazine’s 50th Anniversary Playmate Colleen Shannon), usually playing a mix heavy on house, with bits of Top 40 and hip hop. The crowd is mid- to early-twenties, and the rule is dress to impress. The lines are usually pretty long, so check out upcoming events at The Grand to discover what’s happening that night. We also recommend you arrive early or get a section to guarantee you won’t be standing outside all night.

Halcyon

On Friday and Saturday nights, Halcyon will be a dance club, with electronic DJs and semi-live performances. But in the vein of nearby Public Works, Milano also plans to host weekly entertainment events like a Wednesday-night cabaret, complete with live dance performances, booths with bottle service and 56 cabaret tables. She’s also considering hosting dance classes on certain nights, including different types of line dancing in the evening and yoga-dance classes that will keep the space active during the day.

And of course, Halcyon will be available for corporate and private events as well. To accommodate all of these different uses, the layout and the lighting are being designed to allow the space to easily transform from one offering to another. With brick walls and a steel support structure, it’s a “very tough, raw, industrial-looking space,” so Milano and her team are working to give it a “nice shiny veneer,” she said.

LED lights are being added to the support beams, and she’s installing a “state-of-the-art” projection mapping system. “I’m single-handedly keeping LED producers in China at work right now,” Milano joked, describing the look of the finished space as “a tough bitch in designer clothing.” Choosing a name that symbolized her wide-ranging offerings wasn’t easy, but Halcyon has many relevant meanings, Milano said.

It’s “a cool word” that’s used to refer to blissful, carefree memories or a golden era, as well as the name of a popular dance record store in Brooklyn, where visiting DJs in the ’80s and ’90s would commonly stop in before shows. It’s also the name of two different birds: one from Greek mythology, and the other, Halcyonidae, a family of the African Kingfisher. The latter bird will grace one wall of the venue, in the form of an abstract mural. With all this and more, a free Guest List is definitely worth checking out. Simply click upcoming events at Halcyon to see the Guest List options.

Temple

San Francisco’s popular Temple Nightclub underwent a complete redesign, reopening in October 2014. The 20,000-square-foot nightclub, located in SoMa, now features a 50,000 addressable LED immersive lighting sculpture and a Void Air Motion sound system. The venue comprises three different rooms: The main room holds 750 guests for receptions and includes bottle service tables as well as two full bars with one mezzanine-level bar. It also has a 16- by 12-foot stage, a DJ booth, and a 4- by 20-foot LED for visual projection.

Another space, called LVL 55, holds 350 for receptions and offers a full bar and enclosed DJ booth. The Infinity Lounge holds as many as 150 guests for receptions and includes a full bar, customizable DJ booth, and energy-generating dance floor.

The Best Hip-Hop Clubs in San Francisco

There is something to be said about the Bay Area’s hip hop presence. Sure- it isn’t the ATL or Chicago. San Francisco might not have “hip hop soul” but it does know a thing or two about pleasing everyone. And in the words of Tupac- “California, knows how to party.” Hip-hop has a definite presence in SF. Here is a list of the hottest clubs in the city for the people who would take some solid lyrics and a beat over a synthesizer. So if you’re more of a twerker than a first bumper, read on to find out the best hip-hop nightclubs in San Francisco.

Arena SF

Mission statement: “I DO IT FOR THE RATCHETS”. Imported straight from Ktown LA, this new Mission hotspot is bumping Thursdays – Saturday nights. No cover at Arena SF – but the line can definitely get long. Bottle service is recommended – and prices are quite reasonable. Bottle service tends to sell out here so we recommend reserving a couple days in advance!

The Grand

Between Latino Fridays and Freestyle Saturdays, you are all set at The Grand. A large Vegas-inspired nightclub, The Grand takes the cake for the big and bold when it comes to hip-hop clubs in the city. It isn’t too far from AT&T Park and close enough to Uber quickly to one of the other SoMa hip-hop hotspots. Sign up for free guestlist or book tables at the Grand using the Discotech app!

Holy Cow

Holy Cow is a total retro Los Angeles feel club. Polished oaky wooden tables and thin industrial-feel rails perfect for holding on to while you drop it low characterize this Folsom street club’s renovation. Just a heads up- Holy Cow is said to be overpriced, but sometimes you can’t expect to put a price tag on a wild night out. Guestlist and table service available on the app.

The ROC

If being surrounded by families and tourists on the Alcatraz tour just won’t cut it (we don’t blame you), head over to The ROC. This Alcatraz-themed bar and club brings the naughty to Fisherman’s Wharf. Expect a line out of the door on their most popular event, The ROC Fridays, drawing in tourists and locals alike who want to enjoy hip-hop music blaring from their state-of-the-art sound system. Browse upcoming events on the Discotech app! 

Origin SF

You may not have known, but the owners of The Grand have brought another gift to San Francisco’s hip-hop scene, and it’s name is Origin. If you love the aesthetic of a stylish lounge and you don’t want to go all the way to SoMa for a nightlife experience, this Western Addition/ Fillmore venue is spot on. The decor is trendy, much like the boutique hotels of SF, which could be why they often refer to Origin as a “boutique nightclub.” They host fun talent and bump hip-hop, top 40 and EDM. RSVP to get on the guest list or book bottle service at Origin SF using the Discotech app!

LUV

As the newest and the most anticipated nightclub in San Francisco, LUV has delivered a breakthrough experience to the San Francisco nightlife scene. Whether you are a dance junkie, an avid party goer, or an occasional clubber; they have everything you could want or need to fall in LUV with their venue! Those with more exclusive tastes are able to take in the sounds of the DJ from one of our VIP tables in 3 different sections – either in the elevated section overlooking the dance floor, across from the DJ, or in front of the massive 15 foot LED screen. Enjoy a VIP experience like nowhere else in the Bay Area. Browse upcoming events on the Discotech app! 

Vanity

Vanity is the premier San Francisco nightlife destination with all of the elegance and class you could think of. Vanity offers deluxe amenities including VIP Bottle Service with VIP packages and varying themes to satisfy every indulgence. With 12,000 square feet of space, sensuous ladies on staff and all the VIP amenities you could dream of. RSVP for our guest list or reserve your table for upcoming events here!
