One of the best venues in SF for edgy new music! – Friday nights at 1015 (I think they call it 103 Harriet that night) are the best! They always bring in hot dubstep, electro, indie DJs and throw awesome parties! My favorites have been the Low End Theory nights, Kraddy, Martyparty, Gold Panda and SBTRKT. I can't wait for Afterburn tomorrow night too! I <3 1015 Folsom!!
Cutting Edge Shows & Great Music – 1015/103 Harriet has been bringing in awesome cutting edge shows over the past few months. I've been to a few of the Low End Theory events, which are awesome underground dubstep/hip hop shows featuring DJs and artists primarily from LA. I was also there for a packed RJD2 show a couple months back that was also really sick. Cool spot!
terrible place , will never go again – I have been witnessed to an extremely traumatic experience at 1015 Folsom and that is the reason just joined citysearch to post my concern.
Yesterday with a group of friends, were in guest list line to get in for Deep Dish right at the door, but there was a huge line at either side of the door and also many people on the sidewalk and street toward the front door. A young guy tried to sneak in form the front, a bouncer yelled at him with the loudest voice and then like it wasn’t enough to send the guy to back off, he put both his hands on this guy’s neck and started choking him to the point that his eyes started rolling back in his skull, he started moving the guy with his hands still around his neck to the middle of street and then throw him to the ground!
I have been in many small and large and mega clubs in Toronto, different cities in US and Europe, never witnessed such a disturbing scene! The bouncer literally assaulted the poor guy which he was only guilty of being sneaky and trying to get in! The young guy about 5’6” and the bouncer massive body and 6’2” probably? (When he yelled at the guy, he immediately started going back, no choking was required) I just hope that this young guy is OK, and I also hope that he realizes that what happened to him was not right and he should press charges against the club.
At that same moment my group moved in the club, no one checked our ID and we just went in.
A little bit about music experience, which is far away from any club that I have ever been, very poor quality, over compensated by massive base that I assume people should be high enough to enjoy, since there was nothing pleasant about sound system. Although I was so traumatized by witnessing the assault done by bouncer that I could not stay and experience the bad music and decided I would just leave. So after less than 10 minutes in the club, I just left. Will never ever go to this club ever again! And advise everyone to not go until the management change the way they treat people at the door.
Definitely Avoid on any night of the week. Worst Customer Service I've ever seen in my entire life – Ok so this club is seriously one of the worst I have been in my life, and trust me I've been to many different clubs before as I've lived pretty much all over the world. But in all my years of clubbing and traveling I have never seen such horrible customer service be it from the bouncers or the bartenders ... Oh and by the way, don't ever take a cab in SF, they are the biggest jerks I've ever encountered as well. I've never had such a rude cab driver. The guy was hella discriminating ( I'm half french half german and my friend is from Africa-Togo) and the whole ride he was complaining and being a big douche. At the end of the cab ride, he goes: You're welcome A-Hole foreigners". If my 3 girlfriends had not holded me back, I woulda ripped that cab driver a new A-Hole but right on his face. Anyway, so I go to 1015 Folsom and order 3 drinks for us. The bartender (some ugly asian yakuza) was a total douche with no customer service at all. I ask him how much I owe him for the drinks and he goes: " I already f.... told you, it's ...." To which I respond: " Wow come down there, what's up with the customer service in this city, you're the second douche I encounter tonight...". He goes like "yea w/e just give me my f.... money ". I threw the money in his face and got the hell out of that club. This was the second time I went there, and the second time it was empty as hell ( now I understand why) and no customer service. Drinks are expensive and they barely put any alcohol. Basically a big rip off and a tourist catcher. DO NOT GO THERE ON ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. SAVE YOUR MONEY OR GO TO LIQUID !
Avoid if you don't want to be stabbed – Me and a couple of my friends went there on a Saturday night to watch DJ Paul Van Dyk play. Anyway, we got bottle service and a table, we went to the main area for a bit and came back. A bunch of guys had taken over our table, and when we tried to go and sit there, they threatened us and pushed us out. When we called security, they did nothing about it. The guys who threatened us were still there, and we decided to leave. Point is, if you want to get your money's worth, do NOT go there. Gangs and other questionable characters hang out there, and security does nothing about it.
A shadow of its former self – many, many years ago 1015 was known as "martinis" and was considered THE place to be. it had an underground but hip vibe to it. i can even remember the lines to get in would wrap around the block....and that was b4 the doors even opened (they also had a "velvet rope" policy). fast forward a couple decades and although we now have a much renuvated venue and better sound systems...the majority of the clientele are...questionable. to prove a point, i believe it's the only BIG s.f. (mostly) dance venue that pats you down and uses a metal detector. more has been improved to keep out the undesirables like better lighting (it was WAY too dark in some parts of the different rooms) and even more renovations but they really need to keep radio hip hop outa there and change up the constant trance in the main room (all that trendy hyphy stuff keeps bringing in the unclassy wannabes and the trancey junk always brings in the tweakers).
The Best BARTENDER EVER! Gwen is Amazing! She makes the best Hanger Lime Cosmo's! Good DJ line up and Hot guys all around!
This is only a good club IF you are ASIAN – This club should be renamed 1015 ASIAN as everyone in the club but the two in my party were all Asian. In a city as large and diverse as San Francisco why would anyone want to go and dance here unless you were specifically looking for an Asian date! The DJ was decent downstairs but I would not recommend this club to anyone until it is under new management.
Fun – I went with my man on a Saturday night/morning. Line was pretty long, going around the block. I think the cover was a bit much ($20), but there are a couple of dancefloors inside, & they were playing some good trance that night. Parking wasn't that great, although one guy from the street helped us get a spot. Wasn't feeling the dancefloor upstairs, & didn't check out the one below. Main dancefloor was okay, but I really liked the trance dancefloor. Overall, I had a good time, will definitely go back, but will try to get on a list in order to avoid that pricey cover!!
WOW!! what a transformation – 1015 slipped of for a while, but me and my girlfreinds went there this past weekend, and wow, security was realy freindly, sexy people. the remodeling they did is amazing, I almost couldnt recognize it anymore. definitly go to the website 1015.com . you can get in for free on most saturdays by signing up. they even have bottle service.
