If I could, I would give this place ZERO stars!!!! I implore all people of conscience or just conscious people to boycott this dump. I received such RACIST and reprehensible treatment here that I dont want anyone to spend another dime

Very fun place to come for dancing and it has a nice sized dance floor for it too. It can get kinda crowded but that is the normal for many bars along this area of polk street. Each time i have come i have had a great experience. Great priced drinks too that you would feel like your at happy hour instead of out on a saturday night at 11:30pm.

This is the spot to drink and dance. Usually the good clubs are crowded but this spot it perfect. Also the drinks are awsome.

Pros: Dancing

This bar is cool since it's right down the street from where I stay. They have a smoking lounge (says it's a patio, but actually indoors, which is nice) for smokers like me... They have a great happy hour, and 4 for $10 Jello Shots 24/7!

Pros: Drink deals, dancing, smoking lounge, location (from my place)

Cons: Parking looks hard, gets really packed during weekend peaks, can't run a tab

.

Really small bar in the tenderloin, very crowded and sweaty people. You Cant even dance, the music was not consistent, drinks were really bad and the crowd was very casual

As a local who loves Vertigo, I know exactly who the dude is who goes by the screen name "Tribaldelic" is. This is the sort of local color that you run past quickly in order to enter a club on Polk Street. God bless the owners of Vertigo,

Pros: dancing, smoking room

Owner, also Owner of LUSH down the street needs to take a course in Public Relations - I'd patron both bars more often with recommendations if the owner sold out to someone more professional. Owner is not freindly with Gayz Clientele -

I've been to just about every bar/club there is in sf, and i have to say Vertigo is the best! maybe those of you that think its a "frat" party should go somewhere else. Mr. Kenny is the most friendly bar owner/operations/bartender there

Just got back from partying at this place, and I must say that the crowd isn't a bad one, nor is the decor. The music is a strange mix though. The DJ went from hip hop, to 70s funk, to something that sounded like it was from the 50s and

Pros: Decent crowd, okay music

Cons: Rude bartender, parking

Vertigo is the reason why I don't let my friends (or friends of friends) select the nightlife destination. If I wanted to go to a frat party, I would have visited one of the local universities. The bathroom is the size of my Acura's glove

Pros: They provide employment

Cons: I would send my enemies here.

The staff at Vertigo are truly offensive. They are condescending and rude, but at the same time they permanently boozed up to the point that they can't complete sentences. I urge you not to patronize this bar. It's just not worth giving

I went to Vertigo for the first time this past weekend. I had a great time dancing, the music was better than most "clubs" I've been to here in the city. It was a bit crowded, but not to the point where it made you want to leave. Drinks

THIS PLACE IS WORTH VISITING FOR THE BARTENDER ALONE. YURI MAKES DRINKS AS WELL AS HE MAKES CONVERSATION...THE HOST KENNY MAKES EVERYONE FEEL LIKE HE'S SPINNING THEIR OWN PERSONAL RECORD COLLECTION. FROM THE DOORMAN TO THE BAR-BACK THESE

The new bouncer is not as nice as the previous one, and does not seem to know what he is doing.
The bartenders rock! Drinks are Faboo!
DJ's vary, weekend guy is quirky but gets the teeny dance floor all sweaty and hot...that's good.

$2.00 cover? SURE! We're in! Walk in. Dancefloor is TINY. The DJ was spinning CD's and the system would cut out half a second with every track he played. The DJ went from hip hop to 70's (he played DEVO!!!), to Def Leppard (he played

This is a great place! I always take people here when they visit from out of town, and nobody's been disappointed. They have a menu of exotic drinks with San Francisco-inspired names, and on the television at the back of the bar you can

Nothing special. Ok atmosphere, but was almost empty (30 people) when we were there at 11:00 on Friday night. Mid 30-s crowd, too old for me. Seemed to be a local hangout
