Pros: Best cocktails, fun vibe

This is a really fun hip hop club. I am familiar with the staff and doormen now, so they let me in free everytime. There aren't that many hip hop clubs in SF that are fun and classy but Icon is definitely one of a few.

Couple of my local friends were invited to a birthday party @ Icon lounge..anywho...what an horrible night. The drinks were very bad. The bouncers were very very abusive. SOMEBODY NEEDS TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION.

I flew out from New York to celebrate at this club with a few local friends. What an awful experience. If you like bad drinks, abusive bouncers, inept management, a club that is likely that to burn down due to electrical problems, mediocre music, a small dance area with no place to sit, and fellow club goers from dubious neighborhoods, then this place is the place to be!

I must say...I love Icon. Its a medium size lounge with two rooms and an upscale feel. I celebrated my 29th birthday here on a Friday night and since I had over 60 people coming, they gave me a private room with its own bar and dance floor for free. I searched for a place for weeks and none offered what Icon offered.

While it looks ok on the website, Icon is a small, somewhat dingy place that plays average music and has average priced drinks ($9). The real problem though is an aggressive crowd and out of control bouncers and door manager. When the group I was with was harrassed by drunk or drugged "patrons," the bouncers tolerated their behaviour, and then threw us out. They seemed amused to throw out the victims. I actually felt safer outside the club among the vagrants and addicts who seem to loiter near the door then inside with the bouncers. And the comments others made about parking are true - one of the girl's in our group had her car broken into. There are so many other, better choices to go to then this place. Don't make the mistake we did and have your evening ruined.

I went to Icon on a Friday night. It was my girlfriends birthday and we had guestlisted 20-30 people. When we got in line, management didn't have any of us on guestlist, and me and my girlfriend ended up waiting outside with the guestlist guy to tell him who was in our group and who wasn't.

Once inside, I soon found out there was nothing upscale, ultra, or iconic with this place. It is far too cramped with limited seating area, and the place consists of only two rooms. ALSO, there is something wrong with the bouncers that work there. There was an altercation with my girlfriend and another girl. Let's just say the other girl got kicked out immediately from the club, and my girlfriend was asked to leave too far no good reason. I did not see any of this happen, and by the time I found my girlfriend, a bouncer was grasping her by the forearm. I went up to him and told him to take his hands off of my girl, and he became enfuriated. The bouncer starts to push me, and push me until I am outside. I did push back initially, but this guy is 3 times my size. Ultimately, we end up outside, and he puts me in a REAR NAK ED CHOKEHOLD and presses me up against the trunk of some car parked outside. I am on the verge of blacking out, and this fool still does not let up. As a result, I have bruises on my neck, and I have trouble swallowing. Believe me, this was completely uncalled for, and was totally inappropriate.

If you do not think this will happen to you, then think again because that bouncer is absolutely crazy, and will do the unexpected. AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!

one of the best places I've been to in the City, great decor, the crowd was Chic and Upscale, Management was awesome felt like a VIP not stuck up or stuffy, overall great experience and great Club to go to for a night to remember. The bar is amazing great setup, music was just right nothing over the top, it's got a little for everyone, two different rooms for different music lovers. But dress to impress nothing shabby,

This is the most happening place to party on Fridays and Saturday nights. Although smaller than the night clubs in Hollywood (I'm from Los Angeles), the place fills up quickly. The crowd is upscale and down to earth. The line is extremely long on Friday nights with people forming around around the block. I prefer Saturday night as it's more of a predominantly mixed crowd. Easily the best night club on Folsom and one of the top venues in California.

This place is really tiny, but very nice. Average prices for drinks and decent service from all of the staff, including the bartenders. Always being able to easily get on the guest list is nice too. I've been a few times now and have always been greeted nicely by the lady who works the guest list, and have even still been let in after arriving a little after 11 (when the guest list is supposed to close).

A complaint that I do have is that the music is not consistent. The don't seem to have the same DJ in there twice, the music has always been noticeably different. It seems like it's usually standard club hip hop, but it was mostly really thuggish bay area stuff one time, house music one time, club hip hop with lots of rock and even some 80's and 90's old school one time (not complaining about that night, hearing a mix up of more than one kind of music was great, I wish more clubs / DJ's did that). This past Saturday we arrived really early and the music was pretty good at first, but then after midnight we heard A LOT of repeats. We heard Kanye West's Gold Digger twice in 15 minutes! Then right after we heard Gold Digger again it seemed like the DJ decided to play all of the exact same club hits again, just at a higher volume. Which reminds me that the sound system there leaves a lot to be desired. It has such an upscale appearance they should also have an upscale and clear sound system.

I went for an OM records party last wednesday and was surprised to find a nightclub on a wednesday night with 200+ people having a great time. It was a very relaxed atmosphere, door guys and bartenders were really nice, it seemed like they had 10 DJ's taking turns playing some really cool funky house I could dance to and I was also surprised to find another room playing classic hip hop combined combined with james brown/prince/earthwind andfire/.... It was definately surprising, to say the least, to find a place to go on wed night; this goes out to people that cannot go out o weekends.

Cons: can't get a bite cause everything is closed aroud

The old club that was at this spot was called the Luna Lounge. It was often deserted, lots of blue lighting (which made the place seem cold), and no one on the dance floor- WHAT A 180 WHEN ICON came in and took over, seriously!!!!
This is a whole new club, great interior design- warm light, attentive (even when busy) bartenders, free guestlist before 11PM and a couple VIP rooms. The dancefloor was full of people who were having a great time just like me and my friends. The DJ played a lot of hip hop, but mixed in a couple 80s favorites every now and then to change it up.
I am absolutely amazed at what a transformation happened to this spot- definitely worth checking out!

I must give props to the webpage designer for Icon. The photos are pretty deceiving, though. We were all set for a night at a sophisticated, upscale club. I guess the free entry before 11pm was too good to be true. At least we didn't have to pay cover to realize this place was not so great.
It's very small and not much room for dancing if it's crowded.
Looks like it's really fun for college kids and teeny boppers, but after repeatedly getting bumped into by stumbling Paris Hilton wannabees. It was time to move on.
There's no place to sit unless you by a bottle, and then you get to share a teeny couch with your friends.
The DJ loves to play rap, so if you're into it, this is your place! Also a great place for the barely legal crowd.
My friends and I agreed this place is very overrated as far as sophistication is concerned.

I thought I'd try this place out this past weekend with some friends. It was the last stop of the night and we did have fun. I only wish they would have used the larger room for hip hop. The main room was trance music - or so it seemed. The smaller room in the back (and boy do I mean small) was where the hip hop was played. Fortunately they had the good sense to install a small makeshift bar in that room. Saved you the time from going through the hallway and out to the main room. You can get on the guestlist and get in for free before 11, but since we got there around midnight it was $10. Not too bad.

More people arrived the later it got.

Had a great time this past weekend for Halloween. The music was awesome -- great mix of the 92.7 dance that you'd expect with even some hip hop, Bon Jovi and Lynyrd Skynrd woven into the mix. The bartenders/staff were super nice and took care of us...crowd was fun and unpretentious. We danced for 3+ hours straight and didn't know where the time went. it's nice inside --even the bathrooms were clean. We'll be back for sure!
