SF Weekly's Description

As you cross the velvet ropes and make your way inside, the rosewater aromatherapy sets the luxurious tone. If the atmosphere doesn't take you away, the drinks certainly will. Have the bartender whip up a champagne cocktail with St. German and a splash of gin for starters. Follow with their blueberry "lemonade" for something mellow and sweet or a mango cocktail for tartness. Vessel also doubles as an art gallery, hosting solo shows for emerging and established artists. Each show has an opening reception with a DJ, happy hour drink specials, free Mission Minis Cupcakes, and free entry. And when it's not acting as a gallery, Vessel serves up DJ nights such as "Base" on Thursdays, which pumps house music for the club's high-end clientele. One warning for the more timid patrons: the bathroom is a unisex situation. But it is kept and tidy, and after a few of those cocktails, you might shed some inhibitions.

  • Dj Slick D on 07/21/10

    Like a little fun? Come to JAM Fresh Wednesdays inside Vessel. DJ Slick D, Chris Clouse and friends.

  • Dancing Astronaut on 09/26/12

    This intimate space is a great place to catch just-under-the-radar house and techno acts, plus big names like Cazzette, Sander Van Doorn, and Chuckie. Don't forget to dance on the tables!

    Because Ruby Skye can skew "douche-y" the slightly less "douche-y" downtown option is Vessel. Intimate and truly underground.
