A chic and trendy nightclub with an underground vibe and oriental decor. The Elbo Room is a definite hotspot on the San Francisco party circuit. The place hosts several concerts and events throughout the year and is also known for its lively crowd, great music and over all energetic vibe. They also have some pinball machines and other arcade games. A good place to check out the party scene and enjoy some great local bands.

Elbo Room Reviews & Ratings
I used to love going to see live music here (fka Elbo Room), but I had a really bad experience this past weekend at the new Valencia Room. After paying $50 to get upstairs for "live" music, we promptly turned around and went back downstairs. There was a DJ upstairs (not a live band), and a bunch of people who were all rolling off their faces, which wasn't our scene. The management refused to refund our $50, even though we had only been upstairs for about 30 seconds. Fine if the new Valencia Room wants to transition to more of a club vibe, but they should've given us a heads-up... or at the very least, given us our money back. I won't be going back!
Great place for a party. Nice ambience, attentive & friendly staff, clean bathrooms. The street parking was difficult, not impossible.
This bar is excellent. Love the dive bar SF feel but cool clientele, no attitudes. Good place to dance!
Great dance floor, good bartenders!
New place in the town, with good drinks and okay music. However they have a secret dance floor on the top floor.
