Celebrating our thirty-fifth anniversary this year, DNA Lounge has been one of San Francisco's most popular nightclubs since 1985, hosting an always-eclectic variety of events, including all-ages live music, 18+ dance parties, burlesque shows, lecture series and private parties. Two stages, four dance floors, seven bars and a full-service late-night restaurant and cafe!
Most recently declared both "Best Dance Club" and "Best Live Music Venue" in the SF Weekly Readers' Poll, DNA Lounge has won over 60 "best of" awards from local publications like The Guardian, SF Weekly and 7x7 Magazine, and has been voted "Best Dance Club" every year since 2008.


Per recommendations of city and state authorities, all DNA Lounge events have been cancelled until at least the end of April. This is a huge disappointment to all of us but the health and safety of our community must take priority.

Stay home, and wash your damned hands!

Now would be a great time for you to contribute to our Patreon or make a one-time donation. Even though we're closed, meaning that we have lost 100% of our income, we still have a lot of expenses that are not going away: rent, insurance, taxes, permit fees... We're also still paying our employees while we're closed. Depending on how long this crisis lasts, this could end up leaving us on the hook for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Don't let DNA Lounge be one of the COVID-19 fatalities...

Join us at DNA Pizza, our attached restaurant and cafe, right next door. DNA Pizza is open late, and we deliver. We specialize in authentic New York-style thin crust pizza, by the slice or the whole pie. Vegetarian and vegan slices are always available, and gluten-free crust is available on request.
We also do a lot more than pizza: we offer custom deli sandwiches, salads, breakfast items, pastries, espresso drinks, and of course a full bar and free wifi. Join us before or after your night of clubbing, for happy hour, or come hang out during the day and watch our massive collection of music videos!
