Beautiful club, with cabanas lining the amazing rooftop view of the city of Los Angeles, a pool (that's open on Sundays), indoor seating with pillowed benches, a dance floor with poppin' music, and celebrities like Rihanna hanging out with her posse just 50 yards away. I felt like I was in Las Vegas. BUTT....(there were many...exposed butts...my amusing entertainment of the night).... The club was so exclusive. My generous friend had to get bottle service in order for us to get in. We were saying there better be dom perignon fountains all over, because that's what would make it worth it. Was it worth it? We sat next to a table with girls giving us a spectacle of their asses, we saw Rihanna, music was good, and the company was awesome. If there was an easier way to get into Drai's, I'd definitely come here again.

This is one of the BEST places to go bowling. And one of the cleanest! The whole setting is very nice. It has alot of lights and good music. Everything is pretty new down to the bowling shoes. I go here all the time with friends and always have a great time. Every person that I have recommended this place to loved it. So If you're reading this review I'd advise you to check it out and let me know if you like it too. (Which I'm sure you will)

Ruby Skye is great (even with one negative, I am giving it five stars!). While I am not sure how their regular DJs are, I went there to see Blank and Jones perform and I was not disappointed. I did not have to wait in line or pay cover (on the guest list), so that probably influences my review, but I would still pay to go here. If you don't like trance, house and dance music, go somewhere else. There are about as many lame clubs in SF as there are restaurants, you'll find something. Anyone who wants nothing but rap and people grinding should look for another venue. I went here for good music and people who appreciate it. I found that nearly everyone was on the dance floor and enjoying the music. I also so possibly the most smiles than in any other club. No one is trying to be "ghetto-thuggish" and look cool, they are just having a good time. The misinformed will stereotype the crowd as E-heads or druggies just because of the music, but it's just as easy to label people who listen to other music forms. If you don't know anything about it, don't say anything. You go to Ruby Skye to DANCE. And I'm not talking about sweaty grinding and pseudo-dry-humping, real dancing to dance music. Nothing more, nothing less. The price. Well, I can't say much about the cover since I was on the guest list. BUT, it's not like other clubs are any cheaper. This place probably has the best bang-for-the-buck. $20 won't make you poor. And if you didn't want expensive drinks, you would have gone to a corner store and bought a gallon of $10 vodka and OJ. One thing that I love about Ruby Skye is that they didn't gut the interior and strip exterior to modernize it. They instead left it in the same style the building probably had when it was in it's prime. As you enter and walk around a circular path to the club, you feel that you are about to see a fantastic show! The main dance area is a former theater while the upper floor is gallery of early-century architecture and stained glass portraits which was once the balcony seating. It is very well air conditioned (walk up to front of the stage, there is a large vent in the side), unlike those stuffy clubs that would rather try to get people to buy more drinks than keep them from having a heat stroke. It's located in a relatively nice part of Union Square (bordering the Tender Loin). I personally wouldn't park my car around there, which I why I used one of the two garages on O'Farrell (one is self-park on Mason and the other is valet on Taylor) . You're of course guaranteed to walk past a lot of drunks and homeless, but that's expected of the area at night. The music is overly loud for my taste (read: subjective). Now I'm not an old grandpa that is shaking his fist yelling "TURN THAT RACKET DOWN", but I do value my hearing and know that exposure to VERY loud noises will cause damage to your ear drums. While you may not damage your hearing from one night, continued exposure can cause deterioration. But one thing is nice is that there are no parts of the main dance area and top floor where there you don't have a good listening experience. Granted that the speakers are probably bigger than all the combined speakers of all the other clubs in SF. To those reading and fearing all the negative and biased reviews, go there for yourself and make up your own mind. If you enjoy good music, a beautiful venue and a nice crowd, visit here. // Update: I just read a lot of new reviews of people complaining about the music. If you guys would like, I can go to absolutely every single hip-hop club (basically, every club) and give them a one star because I don't like the music. So can everyone who gave positive reviews to the music here. But you know what? I won't. Mainly because I don't rate clubs on my own music preference. Jebus.
