Great spot with hot girls on both sides of the bar – I just started going to the Vinyl Room last month, and I must say that it's my new spot when it comes to partying on the peninsula! Before Vinyl, I would hang out at the Alabi or O'Neill's, but lately those places have just been full of dudes. Getting drunk with a bunch of guys, realy isn't my idea of fun, so I decided to check out the Vinyl Room on a Thursday and was pleasently suprised with the amount of girls it attracts. Every time I have gone to the Vinyl Room, I am surrounded by girls...UPGRADE!
The crowd is awesome, and the staff is great too. I love all 3 female tenders (they are the best!) and Beau is a great guy to have behind the bar as well..I got trashed one night at the bar, and he gave me a ride home. They all pour the drinks real heavy, so I always leave with a nice buzz!
The DJs are great, I think DJs are only there Wednesday through Saturday, but they really mix things up - from 80s music to 90s rock. They always take requests and keep the crowd happy.
If you're tired of sitting with a bunch of dudes in a bar with a crappy music selection and no girls... check out the Vinyl Room - I really think you'll like it!
sickest spot in san mateo – dude this place is the best spot in san mateo area... great music... great drink, at reasonable prices, the people that work there rock. no cover, not really a line, close to the train and always a cab around.... place is sick
Thanks for the great review!
Obsessed with Vinyl Room – My friends and I love Vinyl Room! It?s nice to have a fun place like this in Burlingame. It has an SF bar/lounge feel to it, but it?s located on the peninsula, so it?s not such a hassle to get there. The staff is great, everyone is extremely friendly. Juan and Jose, the owners are amazing. The one downside is, they won?t play Bay Area music, because they are afraid people might get too hyphy [sad :( ]. Besides that, Friday and Saturdays are great night to go, because they have a DJ and the place is packed.
LOVE THIS HOT SPOT!!!!!! – THIS IS A MUST SEE TO BELIEVE HOT SPOT!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this place because it's full of great Bartenders with Beautiful smiles. Everytime I go, I meet new people who are very friendly and good looking. The ambience is trendy and low key but when the house DJs come in, they ROCK the HOUSE!!! I recommend checking it out at least once because you'll be HOOKED and will return again. I SURE DID!!! Make sure to dress to impress because you don't want to miss out on the opportunity to party with the BEST!!! SEE YOU ALL THERE SOON!!! =)
A Diamond in the Rough!! – The first time i walked into this bar i was amazed that i had previously overlooked such a gem. This is not your average Burlingmae bar, where the questionable crowd is controlling the music of the night via Jukebox, Nor is it something you could easily find in the city without paying a cover charge only to overpay for more drinks throughout the night, if you're dressed appropriately enough to get in at all. The Vinyl Room has NO DRESSCODE and NO COVER CHARGE, which is surprising because they have some Incredible D.J's Weds-Sunday with alternating themes (I.E. OLD school Hip hop, Reggae, House, and Mash ups). I happened to be there on a friday night where the bartenders were kickin, whipping up awesomely strong drinks in a matter or seconds at a great price too. More than half of the people were dancing.. including the bartenders and the rest were either maintaining a quiet conversation in one of the Very private and comfortable couch's in the back of the lounge, or outside smoking a ciggaratte (which they also sell AT the bar). They have a HUGE variety or liquor, i was especially excited about the Fernette. The Decor was inviting and sleek, with the mixture of suede couches, leather ottomans, and a combination of graffiti and cultural art on the walls. I was surprised to hear from one of the very cool owners that they opt to keep their DJs away from "hyphy" music, and in turn keeping out the "hyphy" crowd. Sounds good to me!! The crowd on Friday was between the ages of 21-31, and my girlfriends and i encountered a lot of professionals who were in the bar for the amazing Happy Hour and never left, as well as some awesome Burlingame Locals, and a few people who came down from the city. In talking to the owner i was surprised to find out that on top of having DJs on all the expected nights, they also have one on Sunday night for.... REGGAE!! Go figure a Reggae club on Sunday in BURLINGAME?? I'm Checkin it out this Sunday! Final thoughts: How necessary, and Finally!!!
Peninsula's best hidden secret! – I visited Northern California a couple weeks ago and my buddies told me about this bar. So i checked it out. I would have to say I was impressed. Excellent lighting, stylish custom-made furniture and cool outgoing bartenders. I felt so comfortable eventhough i went by myself. I met the two owners (Juan and Jose) wow these guys are super nice and made me feel very welcome. They even took shots with me! I met many friendly approachable people that were hanging out there. Great looking crowd. The music the dj plays there i would have to say was, "off the hook!" I had a blast! Can't wait till my next trip to NorCal so i can visit that place again.
Not too shabby for Burlingame! – I went to Vinyl Room on a Friday night with my co-workers. We had fun !! This place is great for when u don't feel like driving to the city. The bartender made us a pretty yummy drink (I forgot what it was called...) We got there early when it was pretty mellow- which was kinda nice. It picked up later in the night and got pretty packed- but not too packed. We could still move around and dance comfortably. I didn't really see any "wanna be thugs" that night. The crowd was pretty chic when we were there.
Great Club/Lounge – In my opinion the best bar on the peninsula. A very upscale chic decor fits Burlingame perfectly. The female bartenders are very attentive and attractive. The place is usually full but not overly packed with a good mixture of people. The times I have been there I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
Trendy spot with a great young vibe! – This is a great trendy spot to meet up friends and lounge with a few drinks. Ambience is really sophisticated and drinks are made well. I particulary enjoyed the scene as it wasn't too crowded nor rowdy. Location is ideal with plenty of parking around and shops and restaurants nearby. Great after dinner-date spot. I highly recommend if you're looking for fun music, an intimate dance floor and a good crowd to hang out with. Its got a great young vibe!
Great Place to Enjoy Good Drinks and Music – If you are looking for a trendy and comfortable lounge that is not far of a drive, then Vinyl Room is a great place to go. I absolutely love their music selection!! They play a mix of good music. Includes: house, reggae, hip-hop (not mainsteam though), etc... The best part about this place is that they always have a diverse crowd. People of all ages and races come here. The people are really friendly and I didn't seem to have any problems with the owners or bartenders. I would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a trendy lounge atmosphere that is closer than SF where you can enjoy good drinks, music, and people...
