DON'T BUY TICKETS EVER!!! – DON'T BUY TICKETS TO ANY RUBY SKYE EVENT! If you print your tickets, they make you wait in the GA line. We asked if we could wait in the WILL CALL line (cause it was shorter) and they said they would refuse ticket holders and put them back in the GA line. We waited 1 1/2 hours last night in the GA Line and moved 10 feet. WILL CALL was even worse. We spoke with the owner of Ruby Sky and he said he hated working with TicketWEB because "that's not how Ruby Sky works". THEN DON"T SELL TICKETS!! Its very disappointing because a lot of great DJs come to that place. Now I know why the GA line is so long!
WORST club in SF .... – got invited to go to the famous White Party and had the worst night out in my 7 years of living in SF ....
(1) very rude crowd, probably drunk, on ecstasy, tourists (or all of the above) - and by very rude I mean as in having two drinks thrown off my hand by people walking around (no apologies), elbowed really hard several times by violent dancers (if you can call that dancing), being groped while walking out of the dance floor, having a couple of meat-heads following two of my buzzed friends around to see if they could get some action
(2) extremely loud sound system (playing house music), you could barely hear yourself talk, let alone other people
(3) understaffed bar, had to wait forever to get drinks (which I didn't get to enjoy thanks to the crowd)
if you enjoy any/all of the above, this is definitely the place for you...
The one star goes for the nice decoration of the venue - classical don't judge a book by it's cover .....
Ruby Skye... – Ruby Skye has great music... but the bouncers and management has no sense of what the hell they are doing ... If you have a "will call" ticket u gotta wait for half an hour more, if u dont then u gotta pay 10-20 bucks more. If bouncers feel the place is crowded and they can pack more people they may throw you out claiming u r drunk ... if u r not drunk but u dont look dangerous, then in any case u might get thrown out cuz the bouncers are bored .... in short, u r paying atleast 20 bux in advance with no gaurantee of any good time ...
Best Music in all the Bay Area!!! – Ruby Skye is not only a very classy Club But features some of the best Trance D.J's in the world. This club has some of the best acts in the city! Their dancers wear some of the best costumes I have seen. Ruby's environment and security keep it a very safe and fun dance club. I should know I have been a regular there for 3+ yrs. I will continue going there as long as my legs permit. I love and have become close friends to alot of their people.
Nice Music but bad Customer Service for VIP and overpriced. – The music was good, they had this great violinist who play to the music being played. The VIP treatment is way below par. Do not pay for a private table and go VIP because it will end up costing you a fortune and the Bouncers and Customer reps there are terrible and will kick you out early if you look like your tired and taking a break on the couches. One Bouncer was very rude and was obviously suffering form a small man complex. He said his name was Tumday which was probably made up because he did not want to be held accountable for his actions. Overall I do not recommend this club. And if you do plan to go to this club go with regular admission and don?t pay extra just to be treated badly.
Over Priced & Empty – I really am not sure why anyone would pay $20 to get in this club??
1. We got there at 11pm and waited in line for 30 minutes only to get in an empty club -- They play the not
so cool hold the line gimmick
2. Once inside the drinks were over priced - $12 for a martini?
3. 99% of the people there were on a club bus tour and really were quite drunk and rude.
4. The music was just ok if you enjoy extremely loud techno / house type music.
Needless to say we will not be back....
A VERY trendy but beautiful venue – and the sound system is one of the best stateside i've ever heard....just be sure to wear earplugs (unless you don't care about hearing loss, of course). most of the biggest headliners around the world dj here but if you've seen em once it's not too different when they show up again and again every so many months. the crowd is ok for the most part but on busy nights (usually saturdays) be prepared to get stepped on by a lot of bad dancers and partiers under various forms of...er, influence. i recommend this as a place to put on your 'to do" list but otherwise, nothing worth hitting up over and over (i get in free due to knowing the right people).
This is one of the worst clubs in the city – This club must spend a ton of money on advertising and it is not working! They should put the money towards the sound system! I decided to give the club a second chance last weekend and again had a terrible time. They played old techno music all night long...urgh... The club had a line outside and after paying $20 to get in you realized there were more people outside than inside! What waste of money!
best club i have seen in San Francisco – This club has it all. Great interior, the cover charge weeds out the crowd, awesome music, tons of room, friendly staff. Everything a nightclub should be. They let hot girls go right through to the front of the line! So inside there is definately some eye candy!! : ) the men are a little too aggressive, take your brother or a guy friend to go with you as your shield. My girlfriends and i were so happy when we found Ruby Skye! We will be back!! (not recommended to those who dont like house music or think its ok to pretend that their bra is a wallet) hahaha!! um hello?
great sound system, good place to go to with a group – went to a bachelorette with friends. great scene. service was great and the sound system was freakin amzing.
