I had my first gay experience on Friday...by going to SF Badlands. Caught your attention didn't I? Badlands is cool for the following reasons: drinks are cheap, they play lots of Gaga, they have TVs that play music videos, there is a large dance floor, and the boys won't harass you if you are a girl. I would have given it 4 stars, but I had to step over a used condom to use the toilet.

me and a friend of mine came to visit the city recently and decided to check out badlands. first off, the $3 cover was great and surprising. most clubs start at cover as much as $10. we got in and it was packed, but it was good vibes all around. everyone was having a great time. there were drink specials at $4.00/4.50 which are practically half off from reg. drinks. the music videos added more fun to the dance floor. what i love is that the music wasn't all TECHNO. i also like that there was a coat check, but be prepared to pay. its only $2 though. i'd come back again!

Unless you like bubbly giddy twinks and queens, this isn't the place for you. I'm pretty mellow, and like to go out and have a drink or two...but I usually leave this place annoyed and p issed off. People bounce into you, slur S's at you and spill drinks down your back. I'm not saying that doesn't happen elsewhere, but it seems to happen with more frequency here.
Beware of poorly shaped eyebrow pluckers!

This is a good place to go dance if that's exactly what you're looking for with the music videos in the background, that can at times be dated. Not so social inside, but definitely hot with the dancing. Weekends can get a bit over-crowded, where the dancing can become dancing in place.

After reading all these other reviews I had to say something. Everytime I go there I have a blast. If you don't then its not your scene. I love the music is top 40. I love reading everyone complain about the crowd, and the drinks, and the music. I go there with intentions of having a great time and always do. I don't trip off of everyone else there. I also think the bartenders are great and as a man of color I have never had any issues with the staff. So please if you want to fall into the negative about this place, and read the reviews of some bitter queens go ahead. that just leaves more room for people who want to enjoy themselves

This bar is the bar to go to if you can't afford a trip to West Hollywood. If you enjoy a vacuous clueless clientele, brainless bulimic bartenders. and weak tiny cocktails this is definitely THE place to go! Just remember to bring extra cash to hand to the snotty doorman for the cover.
