Consistently great fun spot. – San Francisco. I have lived here for about 6 years and seen a number of bars come and go...become popular spots and then degrade over time. Element is definitely breaking the mold. I was just at the 2-year anniversary party last wedensday and it had the same energy, diversity, and creativity that I have seen at Element from the beginning. Awesome DJs (my most recent favorite is this guy named Zaldee sp?), breakdancers, beatboxers, more...
Anyways I wanted to give kudos to this spot for retaining it's vibe and continuing to make the lounge better. Like air conditioning and an security attendant at the bathroom. It's not perfect...but every time I go, I have a great time, meet good people, and dance my tail off. Thanks Element and happy 2!
too small and not to many cuties in sight – ive been here a couple of times and its always a disappointment. the venue is much too small for all the people they pack in and the line for the bathroom is ridiculous, it stretches along the lenght of the dancefloor. its tragic to watch people waiting in line to go to the bathroom when youre trying to get your groove on. and the staff is rude, rude, rude. the last time i was there we reserved tables 4 days in advance and when we arrived they told us that they had given them away and the only option was the vip room. we were told that we would be given a deal for the room but when the tab came they charged us regular price. and the crowd is not diverse. the only saving grace is the music.
Fun – My girlfriends and I always end up here. The music is great, crowd is fun. They stay open late and have breakdancers at like 2 or 3. It is crowed and HOT though.
Lots of fun – We signed up for the guestlist online, which let us in before 11 for free. The music is great and there's actually some seating for people who aren't using the elite services. I suggest standing close to the fans, because it can be pretty hot in the middle of the dance floor. The lighting in the bathroom is as dark as the lounge, though. I really liked the saxaphone player who occasionally blasted out his tunes with the music. Overall, I highly recommend it.
Great Place for a Big Group – I had a party here when all of m friends were in town for my wedding. We had a great time! Everyone said that it was one of the best parties ever. We rented out the back room, which was really cool. They supplied us with our own bouncer, so it was really a private party, but we weren't secluded from the rest of the place which is awesome. They have really good music and willt ake requests if you want em. There are two bars so its not too long of a line at the bar. You even get your own waitress but be careful not to get overcharged. Otherwise it was a great time. I highly recommend it.
Great spot to dance the night away and meet a diverse crowd – They have great mash-up hip hop DJs playing with Sax, and breakdancers performing. It's hard not to be inspired to have a fun time and dance your a@# off. I was there last Saturday night. I have been on Fridays and Saturdays and the crowd is consistently cool, diverse, and the lounge is happening with a great vibe. definitely recommend this spot. not played out like so many in SF...aka. all of Broadway St.
Not as good as promised – I've been there a few times, beacause it's near where I live. Even though there are some good nights, it is not recomandable on a regular basis.
The music may be good, but for my taste it's often too empty to get the party started.
Fun times, good ppl – Hiya all. I went to Element this past Saturday and the night was really great. We had a table reservation and a pretty big group of ppl with us. Everyone got in without a problem. Good door people. The music was a mix: primarily good hip hop, not rap or anything too hard, mixed in with rock, reggae, etc. The club had a really fun vibe from start to finish. You could tell people were there to party and have fun. All in all, a great experience. Oh, the breakdancers were a m a z i n g.
Truthfully – I don't know why these kids are saying it is a great old time. I've been twice, and each time regretted ever going. The drinks are cheap but the atmosphere is BAD. If grinding and bad music is what you consider a good time than this is the place. The music was AWFUL. The people were TERRIBLE. The atmosphere of the place had an awkward, drunk vibe to it. My friends who have gone did not enjoy themselves either. Like I said, if you enjoy bad rap/hip hop music and drunk hot and sweaty dancing. This is the place. eh. enough said.
we had a great time – We just had our friend's bachelorette party at Element this last Saturday night. It was so fun! The staff is very friendly and they made it extra special for the bachelorette. The music was a perfect mix of hip hop and rock. The DJ had everyone dancing all night. We didn't get table service but I would probably go for that next time around...
