Ratio Heaven – The girl to guy ratio has got to be the best in the city. I've been to Dolce when it seemed like the only people in there were girls! DJ's are usually great, and the dance floor is always packed. Bartenders are hot and I always seem to have a blast here.
BAD SERVICE – I went to a private party here and it was an awful experience. The bouncers were rude and excessively "hands-on" and overall, the place is not worth your time. Do not throw a party here.
Dolce - A Sweet Friday Night – Head to Dolce for a fun evening in North Beach. Best to arrive early, the line gets long around 10:30, enjoy a cocktail and hit the dance floor. Dolce draws people from a variety of locations: Bay Area, LA, and even as far away as France. The set-up facilitates conversation near the bar and in the VIP area, dancing near the dj. Definitely serves up a fun evening!
Party ON! – I had my 26th birthday party at Dolce and had the best time!! VIP is definitely the way to go no long wait in line, an escort to your table and then greeted by more friendly staff. Our waitress was extremely nice and made sure that everyone had what they needed. Trust me, no one when without a drink in-hand at all times. And the music was definitely music to dance to. Ive been to Dolce quite a few times before this and always have a great time. Its one of those places where you dont leave until it closes (of course have a hard time finding a taxi home) and then recap all the craziness that went on that night, the next morning. As you can tell, Im a huge fan and if youre looking for a great time you will find it at Dolce.
Dolce-EXTREMELY OVERRATED – I've never written a review before, but felt compelled to share my experience after going to this club. Dolce is a DISAPPOINTING club that has nothing real to offer anyone looking for a good time. The dance floor is small and the VIP area, is just short of pathetic with its five tiny spots to sit. They claimed to be playing Hip Hop when I went, but was more like 80's/Dance with Hip Hop sporadically mixed in. The worst thing about Dolce was their power hungry security boys, who discriminated against the line and allowed girls in first, then good looking guys. And where these good looking people were, I don't know. Dolce trys to create much hype about an image they can't live up too. Out of all the nightlife in SF, I would NOT RECOMMEND going here. You can definitely find a better spot to be at.
Finally... – It's been a long time coming that SF finally started getting swankier clubs and better dance places. Dolce is great if you're not into the college crowd and you love great music and drinks. Expect a line, but the wait is well worth it.
Don't Plan Your Private Party Here! – After arriving for what was supposed to be a private, VIP party I was forced to wait in the rain with the other "VIP" guests -- despite the fact that I was placed on the "guest list" weeks before. If you're thinking of having a private party for your friends... don't assume those friends will be able to join you. The guest list is useless. There's nothing this place offers you can't find at many other SF clubs... except perhaps unusually bad service.
I feel very upset... – I totally understand if the place is packed so people have to wait outside at the door. However, Dolce held up the line and only the girls could get in. Most of my guy friends had to wait at the door for 1.5 hours until almost 12:30am. When I got in at around 11pm, I found that the dance floor was so empty. Why hold up the line out there? Was it because they wanted to show a nice image for other people who just passed by on the street that they had a lot of people in there? The only reason we decided to wait was because we wanted to celebrate birthday together. Also, the music and atmosphere were just okay. The place did not look as good as the pictures that they showed on the web site. Anyway, this place is not worth to waste my night there!!!
SF's Best Club -- BY FAR – Dolce is the only club in San Francisco where everything from the hot Bartenders to the dance floor, the drinks and the DJ is amazing. I moved to the city from New York City and this place is the only spot that compares NY's high end clubs. Weekends are the busiest and the craziest. Get there early or be sure to wait in line. The bouncers are discriminating but it makes for a really beautiful crowd. If you want to avoid the lines, Wednesdays and Thursdays are best. Dolce is by far my favorite place in San Francisco.
Great Club, Bad VIP – Ok, Dolce is a great club--The people are attractive, the DJ's are good, and the service is polite and prompt. That said; do not go to Dolce if you are looking to book a VIP table. So here is the deal with the VIP, you pay anywhere from $150 - ? Depending on how many people in your party. So that gets you a "private table" up in the VIP area. Sounds great huh? What they dont tell you is that there is nothing stopping anyone from coming up into your area or even sitting at your table; and while this is fine when the club not packed, once it gets full people will push into your section, I promise. Nice club, but pay $10 and get the same VIP service as those who paid for it.
