The atmosphere is one of true speakeasy glamour, with soft and warm lighting, comfortable leather seating, and a traditional bar. This is because it is set up in an old-style jazz venue, and they are maintaining the look, rather than fighting it. There are some modern and quirky twists, but over all it is very much a retro nightclub.
The drinks here are perfectly executed and appropriately priced. They count on a full bar with all the traditional cocktails and a few of their own creations available. On the downside, unless you are in the VIP don't expect full service. If you want full service: reserve bottle service and go VIP. It is a very busy venue and you won't get that high-class treatment unless you stand out as a high-class customer with cash to splash.
If you are looking for a quiet venue, this isn't it. It might be one of San Francisco's small nightclubs, but it is still vibrant. The Monroe nightclub gets absolutely packed, and people are always eager to dance and socialize, even if they aren't sure they know you. It really is perfect for people seeking to make friends, or perhaps a little more. If the atmosphere does get a bit too intense, then don't forget there is some outdoor space on the balcony to get fresh air and have a bit of a break.
The Monroe is a real dance club, and the music matches. Rather than count on one performer for the night, this hot San Francisco club has several DJs every night, all of them with their own unique and fun approach. The DJs offer a range of music, from decade-themed tracks to hot remixes, and you will not be able to stop dancing all night long. Just remember to have a few drinks or you will probably dance all night and forget to rehydrate.
This upscale San Francisco club also loves to feature the quirkiest and classiest of events. If you love coming home to your friends and saying "you will never believe what I saw tonight!" then make sure to check out what events are at the Monroe when you are visiting. And if you want to book your own special event, rest assured they have all sorts of facilities and performers available for your event.
When it comes to getting in, the dresscodes are stricter for men than women, and stricter for queuers than for people on the list. So you know what to do. Make sure you look classy, though. You want to fit in with the other guests, so women should make sure to wear cocktail dresses and heels, and men should make sure to wear business casual. Absolutely no sportswear, distressed clothes, or jeans. But if you are on the guest list or have a table you might get away with your favourite minidress or a slightly more alternative look, so don't forget to have fun.
