There are the nights you want to maybe sway a little and bend your knees to a beat. If you head here after work midweek -- or have ever mingled with co-workers in the steampunk-inspired upstairs bar -- you might find it hard to believe that there's a booming dance space downstairs, a secret private room behind an unmarked door, and acrobats hanging from the ceiling.

I'm coming to San Fran alone for a week in September. I'd like to find a bar or something fun not into clubs or dancing where there might be a good amount of friendly, fun, and single women in their 20s ideally. Richmond area but I don't mind having to take public transport after if need be. Just a friendly tip, here, photoguy:
