Neighborhoods: SoMa, SoMa (South of Market), Central East
Massive urban dance venue boasts multiple floors and atmospheres in one crowded club. – In Short
Four dance floors fill this three-story, state-of-the-art South of Market mecca, where crowds usually hit capacity on Friday and Saturday nights. High-ranking international and local DJs switch up the energy from room to room--a swank upstairs floor and VIP terrace; main dance floor with four huge projection screens and liquid, LED-lit "waterfall wall;" sexy dance lounge with a low, cut-out ceiling illuminated by special effects; and large basement dance floor encircled with high-backed red vinyl booths.
good club bad experience – After going to 1015 again it is always a great experience. Except last night when I stepped outside to have a smoke after making it was ok to do by inside security. After I was done outside security wouldn't let me back in. It was freezing outside and my jacket was checked which they wouldn't help me get. But the girl I was with, they let right back in. Messed up.
Not what it used to be...i miss the great shows! – i have some fond memories of this once awesome club! for some 1015 can still to be a great venue, i.e. fantastic sound systm, dance flrs, lighting, etc. however, my last visit after a long time to see Dave Ralph - the nite turned out to be lame...there was no energy! hardly any crowd at 1am. to see a good dj spinning for a small crowd, the place just lost the vibe.
hopefully, 1015 mgmnt realizes the potential the club still has to capture its "glory" years, and transform it back into the kick-a** venue like it was!? we know the biggest draw to any club are big promoters bringing in big names - so lets get 'em back!!! show the city what a cool place 1015 is for a Sat nite to party!
Potential to become best club in SF – 1015 is an excellent club located in a safe area of SF. Parking may be a pain, but costs slighly less than other clubs. The line to enter usually moves fast and cover is a bit on the expensive side (usually $20 and up). Bouncers and bartenders are decent. Although the club has recently been renovated, it still may be too dark and large for some. The main floor has a terrific sound system with lazer and nitro special effects (very rave-like)! The club has attracted some famous DJs like Ferry Corsten and Paul Van Dyk. 1015 also has 3 other smaller dancefloors playing a variety of music (though the atmosphere isn't nearly as good at the main room). Overally the crowd is generally friendly and easily approachable. 1015 is definitely one of the best places in the area for house, techno, and trance music.
I would go again! – Recently went to 1015 w/ my friends and we had fun! I was impressed the line moved so quickly, although the wait at the two bars were incredibly long! I just gave up and didn't feel like bothering or waiting half an hour for a drink! Perhaps they need a new bar or hire more bartenders. I heard about the sound system, but I must say, the music could have been louder. Overall, the music they did play was good and the crowd is good. I'd go again, but this time I'd be on the guestlist so I don't have to pay the $20 charge.
Long over due! – I see its been some time since someone posted comments about 1015. So I feel obligated to give an update. Overall, its the same 1015. Great music, variety, diversity, after hours, SWAT Team security! (which is needed in a club with a capacity of over 2000) I say go to enjoy the music. 4-5 rooms ranging from Top 40 to Hard Trance. World Class DJs like PVD, Oakenfold, D-Fuse, ATB, Armin van Burren, etc. have and will continue to rock the mainroom. On Saturdays Rafael brings the good hard beats in the Basement! Worth checking out at least once. The drinks, security, crowd, tweekers, etc. are all typical to big city clubs. So except it and DANCE!!!
Maybe it's not the place to get down... – I've had neutral experiences with this club and I can't say I wouldn't recommend this to people nor would I discount it. Great place to see the mainstream DJs spin and the crowd knows how to dance.
It's pretty cool. – They have 4 dance floors. Entrance, Lower level, one big cool one, and a top floor. The lighting system is great, especially the big dance floor. The sound system is spectacular.. you can feel the bass roar pleasantly throughout the place. I don't know what the other bad-rating reviewers were thinking..
You see all types in the club and I love the many varieties of music per dance floor.. it gives me a chance to try out other music. What I noticed is that there are some 50-70 year old dudes strutting their stuff. There is definetely plenty of space to dance around... but then again the space along the walls will be filled with wallflowers just staring passively.
C'mon, the crew isn't all that bad... – I have been going to 1015 for a little over a year and a half now, and have been reading all the bad reviews about the security and (snotty??) bartenders. For what it's worth, I would like to commend the security people that have always been more than polite/forthcoming in assistance when needed, in particular, Mark and Krishna. I guess when a club attracts as many diverse people on a regular basis as 1015, the security has to crack down occasionally, and that may be the reason for some of the bad experiences I have read here...
sucks!!! – This club was HORRIBLE!!
1st you had to wait days to get into the barely packed club where you encountered old ass ravers with pig tails and glow sticks in mouth
Then you got your choice of music, Fast Techno, Super fast Techno, or really super fast Techno, with a back room that spun Techno in all the above speeds. Really disappointing!! And expensive
