Too crowded on Saturday – Its a nice scene and good music and crowd, but its just too crowded to enjoy and it ges really hot inside as well.
User review by loriiadams – This place has a great atmosphere. The seating isnt all that comfortable but I guess that's the sacrifice for a cool look. They also often have local artist showings.
$1 Beers on Thursdays keep me coming back!! – I am a student in san francisco without a lot of cash but I love to party. On Thursdays at Element the admission is free with a college ID and they have $1 Beer. It is a great night for students to party and the DJ Rocks with all kinds of hip hop and rock and roll. The bartender told me there is a Breakdancing competition on the 3rd thursday. I can't wait to check that out! Overall a great way to party for cheap!
The most wonderful NYE 2006 – I was at the Element Lounge for NYE and I see why this place has so many loyal fans! The crowd was AMAZING. They had a beatboxer and the Element breakdancers perform and everyone just loved it. The crowd was beautiful, the music was ON, and the vibe was perfect. They were respectful of the people that paid $$ for tickets and didn't overpack the club. All in all, a perfect NYE, topped off with a great kiss. Thanks Element Lounge.
Oh my god! I was at Element last Friday and saw the coolest thing. The hottest guy was playing live sax with the DJ to hip hop. It was so sexy and sweet sounding. I have never seen anything like it. Overall the crowd was really cool and the music rocked all night long. This is definitly my new favorite club in the city. I would recommend getting there early because the line gets long. Oh, and By the way, I LOVE THE SAX MAN!!!!!
ABSOLUTELY BANGIN' ! – I was at the Element Lounge on a Sat. night not too long ago and consider it to be the best party I have attended all year. I go out every weekend and rarely find a crowd that is so down and friendly. The music bumped all night long, the live sax man wailed, and at 2am a group of breakers tore it up right in the middle of the dance floor. It was awesome. I enjoyed checking out the art on the walls as well. The bartenders were a lot of fun and handled the crowd all while dancing behind the bar. I like it when the staff knows how to have a good time as well. Overall this party had all the Elements needed to be ABSOLUTELY BANGIN'.
This place is my new weekend spot! – They don't use promoters. The crowd is loyal and very hip. There is very little pretentiousness, everyone comes to party. Drinks are $6 - $9 but if you get to know a bartender, they'll take good care of you now and into the future! This is my new spot and I am very picky about the places I go to. Cool crowd, really fun music, AIR CONDITIONING (finally cause they needed it), and a great ambiance. Check it out!!!
Nothing like VIP treatment – I was liking the Element Lounge until one of the staff came over to take away the stool I was sitting on - apparently it was needed for the VIPs. Not the treatment I would expect from a place that charges $10 a cocktail. It seems that you're a nobody at Element unless you pay to be a VIP...
Excellent Time – I was just at the Element Lounge this last Saturday. Definitely a night of great surprises. Just like the breakdancing crew that comes through at ~2 AM and performs. Everyone just loved it. Also, the lounge is open till 3 AM, which gives you that extra hour to dance and enjoy. Great crowd, amazing music. Busy night and there were lines outside, so get there early. Like most clubs in this city, they weren't just keeping people outside...for the sake of it. It was really busy.
My weekend spot... – I am a weekend regular at Element and I read negative review about the bar staff and I decided to speak up! The club is so much fun and part of the experience is that the bar staff, door staff, etc. make you feel so welcome...as if you are part of the family. The door staff is always checking in making sure that you're having a wonderful time. Anyways, I think that anyone who's been there on a weekend knows that the music is awesome, the crowd is mixed and very hip, and the staff is so welcoming.
