After-Hours Clubs in the City

Bars and clubs in SF close way too early--ever feel like you're just coming into your own at 2am?--but there are a select few clubs that kindly stay open at least a couple of hours later--and a couple that stay open way too long (we mean you, End Up!)

A motley (to put it gently) crowd and a patio that gets warms up when the sun comes up at 6am--yeah, the club will still be open then--make this legendary hard-partiers' after-hours spot in SoMa the go-to club for those with no interest in sleeping.

181 Eddy St, San Francisco, CA 94102

The bridge-and-tunnel crowd are the bread-and-butter of this cheesy club on a a super-sketchy block of the Tenderloin, but it does keep the music going till 4am most nights.
