Sigh. Where to start with this place.

My friends and I got all gussied up and picked a spot that we thought was a little dressier than the usual nightclubs that we go to.

The first thing to notice is that there is an extremely long line to get into this place. But, once you get passed that the interior is actually pretty cool. The lighting was low and the bar was well stocked. There are big couches to sit on, but you have to pay for a table to sit there. Sad, but typical.

The other thing about this place is that the crowd is not diverse. At all. I think other people who go here can agree with that.

The drinks are very expensive, but again, we picked a more "swanky" place I guess so that was to be expected.

This club is divided into a bar on the first floor and a dance floor on the second. The weird thing is, they play music SO loud on the top floor that it is absolutely impossible to hold a conversation. Isn't that the point of the drinks and table set-up? I think that was the most annoying part about this place... how loud it was.

The downstairs dance floor is long and narrow, like a cellar with a really low ceiling. That's kind of cool in its own way, but narrow quarters and a low ceiling = hot as hell. The DJ was pretty lame too.

This place is a rip-off and is not well set-up for a cool chill spot nor a great place to dance.

Went here for a friends bday on a sat nite. Had a reserved table upstairs. ($300 bar tab to reserve) We must have spent about a $1000 but as soon as our drinking slowed down, they turned over our table. Simply gave it away and hustled us off. Hostess was exceptionally rude about it too. Just moved all our coats and stuff while we were downstairs dancing. My scarf was missing so I went to the hostess stand to ask if she'd picked it up. She had a big pile of our stuff behind her hostess stand but she emphatically said "NO" and walked away to seat a party. When she returned I pressed the issue again and asked if she would just look through stuff for me. She got annoyed and said she simply didn't have it. Finally I took the matter into my own hands and walked around and started digging through our stuff. She got angry (as expected) and called the doorman over. Just as he arrived I found my scarf. I held it up and showed it to her. She just ignored me..no apology, no nothing.

O.K. I can live with with bad attitude if you're a super trendy hot spot, but this place is very mediocre and simply cant justify it. It's just some nice decor, a few couches, poor service, and some very over priced champagne. Downstairs could really be a great little dance floor but the music was incredibly lame.

Don't waste your money on this dump. I'm giving it one star b/c it's required. In reality it deserves none.

Not diverse at all!!! This bar has nothing but bad music and watered down drinks! Not to mention my boy friend came to meet me and he wasn't let in because his pants were"to BIG" this bar discriminates against urban wear! He fallowed the dress coad to a T but his clothes were to baggy (it didn't matter that he was over wieght"! NO THEY DYSCRIMINATE AGAINST URBAN WEAR!!!!!!!!!!!

After giving the barman $25 for 2 $12 drinks, realizing I have no more cash, I ask my friend for a few bucks to make sure he gets tipped out. He takes my $1 change and holds it up asking the other barstaff "anyone want a dollar?" sarcastically, as I'm trying to get more money for that low life;
aside from that the crowd is low grade...opposite of what some cheesy SF tourist magazines describe Bubble as being a City hot spot; maybe it was at some point, but the "moment" is certainly over at this place.

Went to Bubble Lounge on Saturday night and was blown away. First of all no cover (as long as you show the bouncers ID and are dressed extremely nice, you will get in) and second, the gorgeous women! There is actually room to move here unlike some other clubs. Bartenders make good drinks, and if you leave a decent tip they will make even better drinks the next round. Make sure you come with a group of friends or at least one friend so you blend in easy.

Pros: Service is fast and friendly; Large security staff made me feel safe; The decor.

Cons: Some of the people who come to this club, don't really belong here.....

I recently took my wife here for her birthday, and it was very, very romantic to say the least. The service, decor, and drinks were great!!

This place has diversity, its great. If you play by the rules (have id, shoes, dressed decently), you will have a good time. The decor and ambience is soothing. Men - ambitious, trendy, blazer sporting. Women - 2nd year law or advertising 30 year olds. Haa, just kidding. If you are someone who prefers to still hear "Brass Monkey" when out for the night, visit on Friday night (graduated frat crowd). If you are like me and wear a t-shit with a $3K Breitling, visit on Sat night...its more U.N.

I haven't been to this place since 2000 because it was always too crowded and too pretentious. We went there again last night to celebrate an engagement and probably won't go there again until 2010. Let me first say that we spent a lot of money and continued to order drinks(bottles) and food throughout the 2.5 hours of our evening. We weren't being abonoxious, tipped generously and were all well behaved. The hostess constantly kept coming over and moving our chairs(to make room for more people that never used the space) even though the place was not full at all. Our waitresses were both gracious but the finale was the hostess asking us to make room for the next table immediately upon paying our bill. If there were busy I would have understood but they weren't and the constant moving was really distracting...I will take my business elsewhere next time. Was never a fan, still not one.

Pros: Nice place to lounge if they let you lounge and sip all night

Cons: Too focused on turnover, hostess is rude

A group of 8 Women, celebrating a bachelorette party had planned a big night starting at the bubble lounge. When we got to the door, the door man asked us to please show ID. One of the women had gotten her ID stolen the week before and I asked the door man if it was okay (all of us are in our late 30s and 40s). For some reason, this set him off and he said to me "LADY, this is not a restaurant and NO ONE without ID will be let in" we called the manager over, Renee, and she claimed it was the law and that they could get in trouble. She turned her back on us and refused to let us in! They turned us away! After weeks of planning and preparation our big night out could have been ruined! But Thank goodness for the Impala, where we spent approx $1,000. If you want to have a good time and be treated with dignity, DON'T GO TO THE BUBBLE LOUNGE. Their door man is an arrogant, full of himself bully!

This place is quite fancy. I would not go on Friday as you have to rent chairs and pay a minimum. As I am not a big drinker right now this would not make sense. I have been there for special events and parties during the week and I liked it.
Maybe I should hide on Friday night as most of my reviews go on about crowds.

I've only been a handful of times but each time has been nice. Of course they have a huge assortment of champage from affordable to the not so. But they also put on a nice event, I've been to 2 fundraisers and 1 company party here and each one was a blast. I love this place and wish i had the time to go more for pleasure than just work related things, but it does definitely make the work functions much better!

Pros: lots of bubbly, nice decor and atomsphere

Cons: some are pricey but not bad

I always have fun here whether I am in a group or just out with one other friend. I don't typically drink champagne, but their mixed drinks are great, and I love the atmosphere and there is dancing downstairs if you feel inclined....(usually mainstream hip hop tunes).

Oh, and the best thing is that there is no cover charge, and if you leave early you can head out up the street to the Cigar Bar and enjoy a cigar!

Please remember that when you go to the Bubble Lounge you are still in SF, which means on the weekends it will likely be crowded. Our service was great, the champagne was nicely chilled. Music downstairs was lots of fun. I've been here a couple times now and I'd go back. Mixed drinks are just as good.

The place is a really cool concept and has a beautifull setting. However the staff and service are anything but. When we arrived the place was almost empty, it was on a Tues. We asked if we could get a cozy table, as we were celebrating. We were told no. Went to the back bar and when the bartender finaly made it over, it was funny to see her expression, as we ordered a 250+ bottle of champange. We were told to have a seat, in a table that the hostess said was not available. It took a bit, but when our bottle did arrive it was great. However, that was the end of the service! Except of course for the bill. This place really could use a customer service overhaul. There are lot's of great place to order over priced champange in the city. If you are going to have an attitude, you better back it up!

We called for a reservation over a month in advance but when I called a week before to confirm, they didn't have it. We show up and although we are a large party and had been assured that we would have 2 tables they squeezed us around a small table even though most of the other tables in the lounge were empty.

The lounge area on the ground floor is nicely furnished. The drinks were good but many were extremely pricey. The food was mediocre.

There is a dance floor downstairs but it was tiny and stuffy. The music was ok.

I would not go back to Bubble Lounge again. There are so many other bars / lounges in the city that do not botch reservations and when/if they do, they are very apologetic and try to rectify the situation. The Bubble Lounge unfortunately is not one of those places.

The bubble loung is definitely a cool spot to go to. If you are into champagne its a great place. Try and get a reservation if you are with a large group otherwise its all about standing around at the bar. They have a good downstairs area to dance to as well that definitely adds to their value. You will have a great time!

We decided to meet up for a long overdue girls night out, and had the best time at the bubble! Everyone was super friendly and the service was great, even though you could barely move around in there on a friday night. What was most surprising was the dancing downstairs, who knew, we'll definitely be back!!!

I can't believe I've never been here before! After years in SF and only hearing about the place, I went in with friends the other night. What a beautiful place, and all the comfortable couches! I'll definitely be back. It's tough to get a couch if you don't have a reservation, but next time I'll be sure to make one. This is a champagne lover's paradise, and for my friends - the cocktails were delicious too. I highly recommend the cheese plates and of course, the strawberries with chocolate. Mmmmm.

I cant say much about the food and drink
since
We were denied service at this place
The bartender ignored us and when we got her attention she got an attitude
We sat on one of the many empty couches
for about 25 minutes

again we were ignored
while other parties around us wre being served

well complaining to the waiter and hostess wasnt much help
they didnt seem to care
and even said they did not see us.
and they were very busy (the place was almost empty)
Don't go unless you have in mind lounging without consuming...

This opened during the dot.com boom when people were literally drinking champagne every night and was a very showy "in the know" place for the hippest of hip in SF. It's very classy-feeling and in a great neighborhood and has mostly young professionals in their 20s, 30s and 40s hanging out at the bar and seems especially jumping Friday nights b/c of its close location to the Financial District. There is an extensive list of champagne and wine as well as a complete open bar. They also have tasty gourmet appetizers (not chips and salsa or pretzels) which are quite impressive considering this isn't a real restaurant. However, if you're going out for a beer, or some place really casual, go somewhere else - Bubble Lunge is upscale in both dress, attitude and decor.

PROS: Great champagne, Convenient North Beach/Financial District location
CONS: Crowd can be annoyingly snobby

This is the place to go after work if you're a businessman/woman in your 20s or 30s. The Bubble Lounge has an impressive list of champagne and wine options as well as the usual drinks. They also have a small list of delicious appetizers. However, if you're going out for a beer, you should look somewhere else.

I was VERY disappointed by the bubble lounge! I read the reviews and expected fabulous ambiance and service. I was entertaining clients from NY and we found the service to be horrendous. Little help with finding a table and the atmoshere a bit mediocre. I'm not one to complain, but this experience warranted a write up.

what a great place! Beautiful inside with couches - so comfy and nice to relax after a long day at work. There should be more places like this. A group of us were there for drinks and had so much fun. Sure it's a little on the pricey side, but there's something for everyone there.

What a great first date place this was. We were not only cordially greeted at the front door, but entertained by the door staff as we were entering. Our table was waiting for us complete with the strawberries and champagne that I had ordered. After our bubbly we ended up going down stairs and dancing the night away.

I've only been to the bubble lounge a few times, by choice. I usually end up going because someone else thinks it sounds fun...this place is not fun or anything special. Expect poor service, poor food, and unless you like champagne...poor drinks.

Being so close to North Beach....you shouldnt waste your time here, unless it is empty, can talk the staff into allowing you to sit at one of the 10 reserved tables (not reserved for someone who called ahead, reserved for the fools who spend $100 on a bottle of $25 champagne!), and REALLY NEED a glass of champagne.

North Beach has too many option for this to be a "must see" spot.

Wow, didn't think service could be so bad at such a hot spot. Five different waiters brought five incorrect bottles of champagne before getting the right one. Getting water or any ancillary service required practically grabbing one of the staff. For such an expensive and trendy place, the service should have been a lot better. I asked to speak to a manager at the end of the evening and was told he wasn't available. Don't waste your money.

I asked to speak to a manager at the end of the evening and was told he wasn't available. Don't waste your money.

Pros: ambience, caviar, champagne

Cons: service, price, service
