An art gallery/nightclub/bar, this South of Market venue shows films, hosts DJs, gets people drunk -- all in a sleek atmosphere where pretty people come to play. 111 Minna's two rooms, each with its own liquor service counter, can host separate simultaneous events, or they can act as one large venue where crowds commingle while dancing, drinking, or gazing at the walls filled with ever-changing visual displays. Regular art shindigs like Dr. Sketchy's drawing party share the calendar with hip-hop DJ nights, happy hour fundraisers for local charities, live rock shows, and other varied cultural events, so if you're not into what 111 Minna's doing tonight, check back again tomorrow -- it's bound to be something entirely different.
Group show of 50 (count 'em!) artists curated by Irene Hernandez-Feiks and Wonderland S.F.

Maybe you think you’re a top-notch drink-maker because you took an online class, or because you can tell the difference between Ancient Age and Maker’s Mark in a blind taste test. But do you know much about the what, where, and who of your hooch?... More »

In Kate Bernheimer’s introduction to My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me, she likens the book to a handmade topsy-turvy doll. The book, a fairytale anthology, takes a familiar thing and flips it on its head, just like a Little Red Riding... More »
Sometimes, the urge to enjoy an evening of culture and the need to get totally inebriated are not mutually exclusive -- which is why 111 Minna is such a godsend. This place is always at the forefront of cutting-edge art, but also throws a damn good party, with highly skilled bartenders making delicious cocktails, and even a stage, should someone decide to start rapping halfway through the evening (trust us -- it happens). Imagine how much more fun the MOMA would be if you could be... More »
If you're going on an art walk, it helps when the galleries are actually within walking distance of one another. Minna Street, the SOMA alley between Mission and Howard, has long been the home of gallery-cum-club 111 Minna (111 Minna at Second St., 974-1719, www.111minnagallery.com). Since 1993, the brick space has been ground zero for international and local street and urban artists. In the spring, 111 Minna helped Last Gasp comics celebrate its 40th anniversary. Newer neighbors Catharine... More »
Between all the numbingly stupid memos, spreadsheets, and conference calls that must be executed during a typical workday in a typical office, it can feel like you're speaking a pointless alien language between the hours of 9 and 5. Thankfully S.F.'s tireless champion of translated literature, the Center for the Art of Translation, feels your pain. That's why they offer the consistently delightful Lit'n'Lunch series, featuring weekday lunchtime talks by top translators of world literature,... More »
At regular art openings, artists usually act no different than guests, glancing at the walls, balancing drinks, and figuring out savvy things to say to one another. At Sketch Tuesdays, however, the artists do what they do best -- paint, draw, and sometimes sculpt, in full view of all comers. Organized by Sacha Eckes, Sketch Tuesdays is a more informal, less intense version of Southern Exposure's Monster Drawing Rally. Every third Tuesday, a dozen or more artists pile into booths or...

The distinguished gent with the graying temples and the half-empty martini glass smiles conspiratorially as we swoop in on the buffet table and pile our paper napkin with slabs of brie and fresh strawberries. An exchange of witticisms is duly followed by introductions and a discussion of the group show ("The space theme is very ... sort of ..."). Then there's the suggestion of more drinks, and our girlfriend's wink and promise to return after a quick swing around the gallery. Everything... More »
Something strange is going on at 111 Minna on the first Saturday of the month. During the progressive-house night known as "Loöq Hard," there are platinum blond, diet-starved women in black halter tops kissing each other. It used to be that Marina girls with names like Muffy and Heather would go to "Loöq Hard" to dance, and maybe, if they were feeling especially flirtatious (read: drunk), Muffy would do a mock bump-and-grind with Heather, in order to turn on Biff or one of the...
