the hot spot. this place is out of control...... it is so much fun................... every time i come here i meet the craziest people who really know how to have fun........... i recommend everyone to party at the cellar.......especially you have t check the hot bartenders and bar-backs.
The spot! Where everyone knows your name!. Not sure where MXgirl was the other night, but the Cellar is my favorite club in the city, and it rocks. They've just changed the colors on the wall, and the place looks much bigger. the airconditioning is working better, and the staff is the same staff it's been for a really long time! (where else in the city do you get to go to a bar and know your favorite bartenders will STILL be working there 6 months later...). The doormen - after having you show up 3-4 times over the course of 6 months, WILL REMEMBER YOU! no one is stuck up here. The drinks are strong, a vodka redbull is only $6. rock on. they treat their guest list and bottle service reservations like VIPs, though they could work a bit on the VIP sections (they're in the middle of the club). The crowd tends to be a bit on the younger side, but it's still fun. and SYLVIA is one of the best bartenders in the city. :)
Trashy!. Ok, I am from Orlando, and we do not have the best clubs here, so maybe I was expecting too much! First warning was the bouncer looking at my ID and saying....oooh Arizona. Um, no, can you read?? Florida! When corrected he proceeded to tell me what a horrible day he had. What bouncer have you ever met that actually talks to you let alone tells you his life story??! Then standing in the door way were two trashy boys and I say boys cause they looked about 15. The chick at the door looked like she was ready to pass out from boredom. This place was so trasy and gross, we left after 2 minutes. I have to say I read the reviews and thought this would be a good place to party, but if this is the way people party in San Fran, I would rather be in Orlando! I guess I was expecting "classy LA" but this place...... totally gross!
Seriously???????. OMG!!!!!! What is this #^$@! Honest, the bouners were complete jerks. I was wearing my leather leopard skin pants and almost got turned away. I was there with my girls, not a cute guy in sight....or girl for that matter!!!! And the tunes!??? It was like church on a Tuesday! I wouldn't recommend this place to my grandmother, and she's not alive! So, I think I'll try watch "shark week" on Discovery instead! Save your bones, and jump somebodies instead! Suzie xo
Private parties that makes sense!. I cannot believe how well private party people are treated here! I did not realize how hard it is to book a private party without signing your life away in this town until recently. 50 people may not be a large group to some clubs, but The Cellar people treated us like VIP for our special night. We rented out their side room (which was remodeled I guess and now looks super upscale) in the evening for a $350 bar guarantee -- other places I called tried to make us guarantee $2000!! When they opened to the public at 10pm, we got a few VIP booths at NO extra charge, and they let all of our friends in for free... even the ones that came after midnight! Seriously, no other club in downtown SF will give you this deal -- I checked!
Wouldn't have a birthday party anywhere else!. We just had bottle service here for my boyfriend's birthday and they planning staff completely blew me away. Not only did they let us get ALL of our guests in for free all night, but we got to cut to the front of the line when we arrived. Our cocktail waitress took care of us all night, selling us individual drinks after we finished off the bottle so none of us ever had to wait for a drink. Seriously, if you to plan a fabulous group event where you don't have to spend $900 but get treated like you did, go here. We planned our party through Stephanie, but the whole staff seemed really friendly on the night of. We're going back for New Year's eve!
Thank you Cellar for hosting my B-Day party!. I reserved a table (bottle service) and they put ALL of my friends on the guest list! Not like the club last year I went to that limited my guest list to 6 people per bottle!! Once I got to the club we had are own hostess who was waiting for us at the entrance to accompany us to our table. The music was great. Most of my friends were in the hip hop room but I enjoyed the top hits room. The service was really incredible and we will be coming back soon! Thank you Cellar!
I love this place!. Unbelievable - 80's & Hip Hop with Scoty Fox!!! I love this place and have a great time every time I go! The club is just the right size.. Not too large and not too small. The bartenders and staff are great! They let my friend have his birthday party there at no cost!!!
Possibly one of the worst clubs i have ever been to. It looks like their reviews were great after the reopening and have begun to slide. I have to say the crowd was so trashy. There was a disgusting older man actually touching himself on the side of the dance floor while watching a group of girls dance. (no he was not dancing) When we came to pay the cover the doorman told us he would cut us a deal. he brought us around the corner and stuck the $40 (for 5 pretty girls) in his pocket. We know that money never reached the club. How shady. I guess he was 'cutting us a deal' by letting one of us in for free as the regular cover is ten each. This was my first warning sign. The second was that in the bathroom one stall had an occupant getting sick and in the free stall the toilet seat was actually cracked off from the toilet (it fell on the floor when i went in). The music was nothing special, any requests that we had were turned down by the unfriendly DJ. Drinks were overpriced and absolutely no eye candy there. The only good things i can say are that the actual bar itself was chic looking as there were rotating spinning bottle shelves and some cool looking ceiling artwork. They would have been better off investing in a new staff and bathroom.
You have got to be kidding me!. Really don't bother with this place, unless you are new in town and dont know any better or a bridge and tunneler. It is one of the worst bars in the city and they charge a cover.
good for what it is. i may just be getting old but i can't believe how young people who are 21 look these days. which was probably the average age of the clubgoer here, so it wasn't exactly my scene. i liked the dj(s) quite a bit, and the two separate dance floors are always fun for a group with different tastes (the night i went it was 80s on one side, top 40 hip hop on the other) - but unfortuantely in the middle it's quite the trainwreck - you can hear both djs at the same in at least a third of the bar, which is just loud and annoying. i would definitely recommend it for any college students or others of the we-just-started-drinking-in-bars crowd.
Just get there a little later.... Haha, that last review was funny; I was there on friday and think I remember seeing that guy... It was definetely a different scene than the other times I've been there. I asked a bartender and he said there was some fundraiser going on -- so I'm definetely not gonna knock a nightclub for giving some not-so-trendy nonprofit people a place to have their event. After dinner @ Le Colonial, my friends and I came back and it was the usual Cellar madness: cute, financial district guys and 80's, 80's, 80's on the dancefloor. I would definetely give Cellar another chance -- it always goes OFF around 11:30 or midnight; and pretty much all nightclubs rent out their space during early hours. I've heard that you have to pay close to nothing to have an early event there, probably why so many non-profits pick it.
oh my!. so the last person that wrote a review talked about some mickeymouse sweatshirt, and a not-so-great crowd... i'm not sure when they were there.... i was there on friday and had a blast! We started off showing up for a happy hour they had. didn't even realize it was to benefit the local YMCA. the fact that they support local nonprofits - totally awesome! We left around 9:30, it was busy and great music (happy hour prices lasted until 9pm!). went out for dinner and decided we wanted to go back and dance some more. we showed up close to midnight and found out that the cover was ONLY $5! where else in the city can you get in for $5?? (downtown!) again - thumbs up! Scotty fox and MCD rock. i like 80s, but they just rocked the house. and there was plenty of eye candy floating about the room. i must say - the place looks like it does in the pictures on the club, and the people look like the people in the pictures. it's real. the bartenders are down to earth, the place is great. they could work a bit on their air conditioning, but then again, no one's perfect. i rather have a chilled martini with great music and be a bit warm, then have a cool club, with a warm martini and blah music.... just my 2 cents! cellar people - i love you :)
Was I in the same club??. Went there on a Friday night to check out the '80s night but was totally disappointed. The music was great but the atmosphere wasn't like the pictures on the website at all nor were the reviews I read. Maybe I went a little too early but the crowd wasn't the typical club crowd but instead felt like I was in a far east country. Some guy had on a Disneyland's Mickey sweatshirt! After some people watching (no eye candy at all) and a couple of drinks, we left. Perhaps it picks up after in the late evening but I didn't want to stay to find out.
Best Downtown Club, hands down!. After getting more and more fed up with the mean security, stuck up crowds, and the same overplayed music normally associated with downtown nightclubs, The Cellar stands apart like an oasis. They attract a friendly, energetic crowd that's not going to turn up their noses at fellow dancefloor guests, nor will their staff roll their eyes as they pour your fifth vodka-cran. Their Friday night 80's party, "Flashback" beats all the other 80's parties in town because the DJs play a great blend of hits as well as forgotton, "omigod it's been SOOO long since I've heard this" songs. They always have hip hop in the side room for your friends that can't make it through a night without hearing some Justin Timberlake or Jay-Z. It's pretty much the safest bet downtown if you're showing friends a night on the town -- nothing intimidating about this place and ALWAYS and a crowd pleaser.
Sunday Nights at the Cellar - Can't be missed!!!!. The music is great Sunday nights, easy going atmosphere. The bartender is awesome and drinks were really reasonable. I highly recommend this as a Sunday night hangout. Great way to get the week kicked off!!!!
80s night. In response to the last post, the back room was closed on that date for remodelling, and thus the front room was a hybrid of hiphop / 80s etc. The back room is now open again, and completely remodeled. The front room is back to a pure 80s format, and the back room is hip-hop. I suggest you try it one more time. Thank you-----Scotty Fox
"80's" night.... A big group of us went on an 80's night when the side room was supposed to be hip hop. There were a couple of 80's songs, but more early 90's, such as Beastie Boys, Sir Mix A Lot and such, which was still cool, but I think we were expecting more typical 80's dance songs. The side room was much smaller than expected and it was the same music being played in there....they brought in some hip hop songs later in the night before closing. So, it was cool, but not what I expected, I just wanted to put out there what I wish others woulda mentioned in their reviews. The "hip hop" room was more of an alcove which couldn't possibly play different music without it getting all mixed in with the main room music. And 80's night is more of an Ecclectic night. Also, alot of people complained about parking in previous reviews, but we showed up around 11:30pm and all of us found street parking right in front or right around the corner.
