Sleek, Stylish, and good drinks? what more could you ask for? How about great music.? Found it at Sloane this week end. My friends and i decided to check out this new bar on Mission street and was pleasantly surprised. its not to often you can find a cool place with nice strong drinks from bartenders that are happy to make them. No scowls when my girl ordered a Mojito even. I short, if you want to get dressed up and go out on the town for a drink after a nice meal, i say check it out.

I love the DNA Lounge -- it's a great place to go dancing. I stop in every time in I'm SF. I first discovered it because the owner is somewhat famous in nerd circles, and he blogged very openly about the club and his struggles to open and maintain it. After reading about it, I just had to stop in and check it out. I wasn't disappointed. I've been there on various "Bootie" nights, which are probably my favorite events there. The scene is a friendly one, and I don't think that you have to be a hipster or a certain age or kind of person to blend in successfully.

I don't quite know if I should write a review for Antik, even though I have been there a multitude of times. The problem is that I have never started an evening there. It is far enough of a walk away from my home that, if it is my destination, I end up at a couple of other bars along the way. That being said, I have never been sober enough to really take in the atmosphere, et al. As far as I can remember, it's a dark and lounge-y upstairs/downstairs affair with chandeliers, lots of people and stuffed seating (all of this may be part of an alcoholic hallucination, though). I'm sure it's lovely, as all my friends seem to enjoy it, but I also think it may fall under that homogenous Beatrice Inn/Santos/Lit category which may be kitschy and scene-y but lacks any real individuality or spunk (yes I said spunk). I recently read an article about former nightlife empress Suzanne Barscht and felt sick with envy that I wasn't here, nor legal (not like it mattered), for a time when the NYC club scene embraced individuality and originality as well as democratized fun. Alas, maybe I will find my perfect watering hole one of these days.
