Cons: Sometimes there is a line

I went to Etiquette Lounge with two my girlfriends one Friday night. The website described the spot as an up-scale lounge. Once we arrived we discovered that everyone there was in a leather vested, biker group. Not what I expected to say the least.

I guess it may not be fair to rip the place a new one, but some of the people there were real jerks. The staff was fine, but could have been a bit more attentive.

Pros: Music and drinks

Cons: Some of the patrons

I was invited here by a couple friends that told me they knew one of the bartenders. I think that's the only way they can get people in there. there were about 15 people there and they were all friends of the bartenders. its pretty bad when you are paying for bad expensive drinks, and right next to you, the bartender is obviously giving everyone else free drinks (which is pretty hard to hide, with that few people around). The dj was okay, but they could have been playing KMEL and it would have sounded the same. It's very difficult to ignore someone waiting for a drink when there's that few people at the bar, but sure enough, they accomplished this task. I guess the bartenders were more interested in chilling with their friends than serve a "paying" customer. Both arriving and leaving were dangerous affairs. with parking so far away, and the streets riddled with crackheads and bums, you find your self running to and from your car with the scent of fresh throwup and urine all around you. I heard from a friend that they are opening up during the day as a coffee shop.... are you serious.... in the tenderloin??? they are obviously on the way out... Never going back there again, I'd rather go to starbucks!

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: everything

unfortunately I went to this east bay gangster hang-out spot, on a friday night. There were three different people at the front all trying to charge me seperate covers one said $15, another said $20, I mean.... come on!! so after barely avoiding paying two probably b.s. covers, I arrived inside to find one small bad smelling, non-ventilated sweaty room with no real decor. If you like going to the bathroom in rubber boots, this is your spot, because there was at least 3 inches of toilet water with god knows what on the ground! in addition to a guy snorting stuff in plain site in the WOMANS ROOM!!! After being subjected to the same top 40 bad radio songs being poorly mixed together, I went to close my bar tab, and there were about $70 of drinks on my tab that I didn't authorize to be put on my tab. So after all that, you might ask... what else can make this experience worse? well how about a giant fight right outside the club seemingly between rival gangs or groups. Needless to say I'm not ever going back, and I advise you to not go either unless you like being present during multiple stabbings.

Cons: Seedy / Rowdy crowd, Weak drinks, Small, and Smelly!!!

You might drive down market street 100 times and wonder about the sign outside this lounge...It says "Love will solve all your problems, Love will only let you down." It was some time before my friends and I decided to venture to this mysterious and alluring nightlife spot, but since we did, we have been going back time and time again. This is an AMAZING place to have a party or do bottle service. The interior is hot. The crowd is hot. The staff is hot. The abiance is hot and romantic...are you getting my drift? It's a change from the regular nightlife that can get somewhat blah. Great music mixed with great cocktails. They also have a variety of performers that come in and do surprise shows. I have seen beatboxers, belly dancers, samba dancers, djembe drummers...I would recommend it.

Pros: great place to celebrate, reasonable prices, very comfy VIP

Cons: parking is 1.5 blocks away, the place can get busy early

we had to wait 1:15 on the line although we had RSVPed. Then the stupid bartender got me a wrong drink and when i told him that this is not what i asked for, he got kind of angry and gave me my drink(apple Martini) and as soon as i drank it, i started feeling dizzy and i was about to faint. Never go there too crowder you can't breath......

Great place! We went last Saturday night...my first time and I absolutely loved it. Great music. Very friendly staff from the front door ppl to the bartenders. Just enough space to get your groove on, but never too far from some comfy seating if you want to relax. The decor is fabulous and I know my girls had a great time. We'll be back.

Went here last Saturday night for my girlfriend's birthday. We had reserved a VIP booth which was very comfortable. The place is absolutely beautiful and evokes a very romantic fun feel. We had a FABULOUS time and I will be back. At midnight, they had a beatboxer do a special performance which was really cool and at the end of the night, a saxophonist accompanied the DJ. The DJ played the favorites and lots of cool mashups ranging from hip hop to rock. At one point, I think he had every single person in the bar singning. At least it felt that way.

I was invited to come as VIP guest on 6-21-08, eventhough we had other plans after dinner that night I decided to give it a try and took a crowd of 8 - 10 people. The location of Etiquette was very bad and unsafe.

Most of the staff was friendly the DJ was cool, until and issue came accross the matter that was not resolved professionally by Joann who stated she was management, later I found out they were personal friends or employees. To me customer service is #1, being a former club promoter I KNOW THAT. I and others will never be back there again. So beware and do not take a chance.

Decided to check it out. Well I should of not waisted my time. Got there around 11:30 pm, hardly anybody there but employees and some groupies around the DJ. I couldn't figure out who worked there or not. I asked who the manager was then I was pointed to a Asian Female named Joanna (i think) who shockingly was all over a male partner & drinking with some guest that really surprised me a lot. Management mingling with others, HMM. that right there put the red light up and told me that is NOT the type of atmosphere and unprofessionalism I want to be around. Well being a business man that I am, I REGRET 2 SAY, NEVER AGAIN. Etiquette will not be around long and definitely I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND.

This place is a hidden gem...except it's not that hidden I suppose because it's always very lively with a great fun crowd, a hot atmosphere, and amazing DJs. Some of my favorites like DJ David Carvalho and Zhaldee have residencies here. Try the Etiquette Iced Tea for a cocktail with that extra something. I have been to 3 birthday parties and I really feel it has the best environment in the city to host a special event.

I went during happy hour and was very pleased with the personal service (above average) and comfortable, unique surroundings. Later on, a dance party turned up the heat.

Now, the place is small and nondescript, so small I drove by it twice without noticing it. But the joint is definitely a hot spot in every sense of the word. Firstly, at 11:00pm, the bouncer announces much to the chagrin of nearly 3 dozen people outside (K and I included) that they are "at capacity". We eventually get in, and sure enough, the spot is shoulder-to-shoulder-to-shoulder packed with people, which can make for a stifling room. But its well worth it, I tell you, because the skillfully mixed music is a diverse, hip amalgam of hip-hop, old school, rock, and r&b. And this crowd? Hotness! You add those two elements together and you have the makings of an exhaustingly fun night dancing and a lightning storm of sparks and flirtatious synergy.

Etiquette manages to be swanky without being snobby. Delicious libations, eclectic music and an upscale ambiance make this lounge a must for anyone on Market Street. Just a stumble from the Warfield, you can either begin or end your night here. Check this place out, but don't forget your manners.

I had great expectations for this place until some low life stole everything out of my purse! Ladies be careful, there's some aggressive gross men in this place trying to get all over you so they can rob you blind! And worst of all I think the security at this place is in on it! My friends saw the guy who we thought took my stuff tip the security guy on the way out of the club, who does that?! Security didn't even try to stop the guy when we said that he was the one and let him slip away! I have to get on a plane in a few days and now I have no photo id! Also the camera had irreplaceable photos from my graduate school graduation! BE WARNED, WATCH YOUR PURSES AND POCKETS AT ALL TIMES AT THIS JOINT! THERE ARE SOME SHADY CHARACTERS HERE!

I took my sister's bachelorette party to the Etiquette Lounge on May 17, 2008. I chose this club because of the decor and colors: red, white and black - my sister's wedding colors. I worked with the manager Brandon to reserve a lounge area and bottle service. The day before the party he had the floor manager call me and make sure all the details were in place. When we arrived at the club our corner lounge area was roped off and there was a lovely sofa and seating area plus flowers and a cute "Reserved" sign with my sister's name. Our hostess brought our champagne quickly plus extra glasses. We had a great time, the music was fun, the birthday party next to us was a ton of fun to hang out with. Overall it was a great experience. I would even go back if I were into the club scene!

hello. i just had my birthday at Etiquette in the Boudoir parlor room and I was extremely happy with the night...the crowd was really fun, not pretentious, the service was good, and the music was amazing! too bad lounges close at 2 cause we were having too much fun. i would definitely recommend doing a birthday or gathering at this new hot spot.

We chose etiqutte 4 my sister 25th bday mostly based on ambiance. We walked into our VIP lounge 2 find spew on our seats. I found someone to clean it but it took 30 min to do so. 45 minutes to see our host, and 30 more to get our bottles. A rep came in to appoligize 4 this & offered a free bottle of champagne 4 the inconvenience. No one drank champagne so I asked 4 shots. They brought 6 shots for 12 people, leaving 6 without & sitting in the stentch of spew. Our host was never around. We only saw her 4 times, to take the drink order(most VIP lounges ask 4 this prior 2 & have it ready when u get there),to bring the alcohol, take our money while taking a shooting our $250 Patron, & to drop the credit slip. I was shocked to see 20% gratuity added. Very upset I went to find the owner. Their website boasts "Ettiquettes event planners will coordinate & manage every detail to match your expectations." After making reservations I never heard from them again. They never asked 4 a guest list, funny because our room included cover. 2 guests had to pay & all stood in line, so much for VIP! Very frustrating when I payed someone to manage every detail and expectations, pretty hard to do when u don't bother to ask what they are. The owners response to the tip being included in the price of the room (I was told on the phone)"It is included, we added it." I guess someone needs to look up the definition of "included". I would have no issue paying if the service fit price, it did not. His only compensation for their weak attempt at customer service was to give me his card & tell me that he wold take good care of us NEXT TIME. Don't bother because I won't be back. Not recomended for parties/group reservations. Dress for heat & get ready to be shoved around the dance floor. Rough hood especially 4 girls night out. The bouncers stood by and watched a druggie KO a transient. Has potential if the staff & owner will realize without customers you have no club

I have lived in SF for 4 years and I ventured to Etiquette last Saturday to check it out. The place is amazing! Intimate, busy, great crowd, fun music, not pretentious. I will definitely be back. My friends had the Boudoir VIP area which is amongst the best I have seen in the city. Perfect for people watching, lounging, or dancing with friends.

This place is really great. Aside from the slightly sketchy hood, the place boasts a wonderful crowd, great cocktails, and fun danceable music. I have been a couple times when they had live beatboxers perform which was really cool too. A great place to party away the weekend!

Went last Saturday night. Awesome times. Great crowd with great ratios. Music was fun and danceable. Drinks were strong. I would recommend the Market St. Manhattan. If you're not careful, it'll knock you on your a@#. I will be a regular at this new joint.

One of the best new spots in SF. Loved it loved it loved it last Saturday night. Great fun crowd. Very fun DJs that kept us dancing all night. Lots of cozy seating for when we wanted to take a break. Nice bouncers and staff too. I will definitely be back soon.

Friends & I got there on Friday night around 10:45pm & the lady at the door insisted on a $5 cover charge eventhough we were on the guest lists. (your web site say it is free before 11pm) We took a look inside & there were less than 20 people at the time. We went to the W & spent about $150 there instead. We went back on Saturday & it was much more crowded, all my friends agreed that the music is terrible. The DJ is either trying to please all races, stop playing music you can't dance to, club music need to get your heart pumping for more. May be that's why only 25% of people were actually dancing, the rest are just in groupie. ICON on Folsom, that's a club with kicking dance music!!!

Pros: Cozy,

Cons: Music is not happening

.

As we entered at around 11:30 pm, we saw that it had great atmosphere and great decor. However the music which I hoped would be a combination of hip hop and top 40 hits was disappointing and awful. The resident DJ, DJ Von was more entertaining when he took a bathroom break. They need to seriously fire him and get someone else who knows how to mix and make something actually audible and enjoyable. This was the first time I went there and at first my friends and I were excited because it was a new club and it seemed that the crowd was having a good time. But after listening to the music, my heart sank, my hope for a good time shattered, all due to DJ Von's performance. The crowd disappeared by 1:00 am, which is typically the epoch of a traditional clubbing experience, but at Etiquette Lounge, the few (around 30 people) who braved to stay, were either getting drinks (to avoid the music), sitting down (because you didn't want to dance) , or text message (to wait for another song). Most likely, the ones who were text messaging, were telling their friends that the music su-ked. My friends and I tried to have a good time, but after an hour and a half of sitting, drinking, and attempting to make good of what we could. No fun was to be had. I'm sure Etiquette Lounge is a great place for drinks in the afternoon, but for music and dancing in the evenings, I'll stick to Suite 181, 1015 Folsom, and the countless other clubs and lounges San Francisco can offer. Please take heed in my advice, DON'T GO TO ETIQUETTE LOUNGE!!!!!

To give you a good idea of how bad the music was.

--All the reserved tables and VIP sections were empty by 1:00 am.
--Only 30 people inside at 1:20pm (when I officially left).
--Bouncers/Security even told my friends and I, that "THIS DJ IS AWFUL, HE SU-KS".

I'm sure Etiquette Lounge is a great place for drinks in the afternoon, but for music and dancing in the evenings, I'll stick to Suite 181, 1015 Folsom, and the countless other clubs and lounges San Francisco can offer. Please take heed in my advice, DON'T GO TO ETIQUETTE LOUNGE!!!!!

To give you a good idea of how bad the music was.

--All the reserved tables and VIP sections were empty by 1:00 am.
--Only 30 people inside at 1:20pm (when I officially left).
--Bouncers/Security even told my friends and I, that "THIS DJ IS AWFUL, HE SU-KS".

Pros: ATMOSPHERE

Cons: DJ VON, MUSIC, LOCATION, AND SMALL SIZE

I went to Etiquette for my first time last night and loved it. I met my group of friends and had a blast. I am paying for it today. I loved the different look of the place, cool style and light. The music was great, i even shaked my tail for a few. Will be going back for sure.

Stopped by this past Friday. I had no expectations, just checking out a new place. I could hear the tunes from the outside and I instantly knew that I was going to like the music (if you like mainstream hip hop). We entered and the place was dark and new. Not too many people there, but maybe that's just how it was that night, considering it was already about 11:30 or so. The place was interesting looking, library books and crazy looking red stools. The people tending bar were nice and attentive. But the only downside was that the place was pretty small (the bar, the dance floor -- all one space, or maybe it just felt that way because of the lay out. It felt like you were in one big room and could see everything that was going on. No nooks to be found, or other rooms for that matter. I might go back one of these nights because aside from the size thing, I did like everything else. You should definitely check it out.

When I entered inside Etiquette I was pleasantly surprised of the decor, color and style of the place. It felt smart, like a modern or futuristic library with books and booze... could you ask for more??? First thing that ran across my mind, oh... this seems like a place I want to have a party at! Second thought.... drink! Yesterday was a cooker...hot, hot, hot! Was i ready for a martini? I was... The nice bartender, Randal was his name, made me the best martini ever! I had a great time, nice people, great drink specials and good music. Can't wait to go back!

Pros: Drinks, music, friendly staff

Went here for the first time this past Saturday and was underwhelmed. The signature cocktails aren't bad, but none of them inspired me to go back for seconds. The design elements feel cheap. Too much clear red plastic acrylic and poorly painted wood. You can only hide so much IKEA-like furniture with dim lighting and a coat of white and/or black paint. If nothing else, please do something about the red plastic bongos being passed off as sitting stools. People will be falling off those left and right after a couple pop rocks cocktails. (We tested them and they do in fact make better bongos than seats)

The crowd was pretty young, fitting right in with that IKEA esthetic. But they were having a good time despite the questionable 90s' greatest hits dance music the dj played all night long. One of my friends there may have said it best a few cocktails into the evening - "I guess just about anyone can open a nightclub"

I don't mean to sound like a hater and I might be expecting too much here, but if you're going to present yourself as upscale and swanky, pay attention to the details, or at least hide the cheap ones.

I did like the little side lounge/private area and our cocktail waitress was very friendly and fun.

Cons: style without substance

Relaxed, conversational, upbeat, very fun. Etiquette gives you the opportunity to lounge with friends or dance to great music in a very stylistic lounge. The interior like the crowd is very attractive. But...I didn't notice that bit of pretentiousness that usually accompanies lounges of this type. I will be back.

This place just opened last Thursday. It is such a beautiful lounge, and I commend the owners on trying to bring some life to the 7th and Market area. Great drinks, great DJ, and a fun, attractive, spunky crowd. I will definitely be a happy hour regular as I work close-by...and a nighttime regular cause it was just so FUN! ps- look for the subtle twists that test the boundries of social propriety. =D
