Ruby Skye

The popular nightclub in San Francisco, California. The nightclub is housed in the Native Sons of the Golden West building at 420 Mason Street. Downtown's most glamorous and colossal nightspot led a previous life as an 1890s Victorian playhouse, and many of the beautiful Art Nouveau trimmings are still in place. Mission District clubbers won't go near the place -- way too disco and full of the "bridge and tunnel" crowd -- but for tourists it's a safe bet for a dance-filled night in the city. The light and sound system here is amazing, and on weekend nights the huge ballroom floor is packed with sweaty bodies dancing to thumping DJ beats or live music. When it's time to cool off you can chill on the mezzanine or fire up in the smoking room. For more information call: 415/693-0777 or visit the website
