End Up (The)
The End Up is a San Francisco institution. It's very roomy: although the dance floor is small; with a huge outdoor patio, a fire place, and comfortable seats to take in the scene. And there is quite a scene guaranteed! Having evolved from a historic gay nightclub to an all-inclusive dance party, it has one of the city's sexiest mix of gays and straights mingling here. The club is open from Thursday to Monday.
I dislike NOTHING about this place. I am a straight female and I LOVE going to the End Up especially for Fag Fridays and Tea Dance on Sunday afternoons. I can let loose and party without having to worry about sleazy meat-market hetero males.
This place is simply the best that it has to offer.
The atmoshpere is indescribably cool and non pretencions. There is no judgment from this incredibly mixed crowd, where rich and poor, black and white asian or latinos straight or gay, boys and girls and everyone between (if you know what i mean) come to dance from Thursday to Monday morning, till the sun goes down or the sun goes up night or day non stop and enjoy a beautiful Zen like garden with huge waterfalls, tall bamboo trees in the open space, elevated dance floor, huge patio, even a pool table for those who just want to lay back, relax watch and listen to world class DJ and they selection of music from all around the world. This club is unlike any other I have ever seen. This club is a mirror of San Francisco it self.
The End Up is still standing tall after 32 years of operation of a category of it's own.
Voted the best nightclub in SF year after year.

I've been a regular at the End up since 1976 and Bryan for over 10 years. It's the one place I've never had a bad time at and the staff and owners are like family and best friends. Most clientele are there for a good time and make sure that happens.
Not to mention the great music, fantastic DJ's, wonderful bartenders and staff and overall feeling of being a part of the establishment, not just a customer.
With everything San Francisco has to offer, I can truly say the one thing I iss the most since moving to Phoenix is my weekends at the End Up.
In my opinion, there is nothing to dislike about the End Up.
There are nice clubs here but there will never be another End Up anywhere.
