What I liked most about it was the people there - the women were less competitive and the men were... better behaved. I have to v. 4037-8400-2395-0668

admit the drinks were a little strong, but the atmosphere and like I said, the people were just great. Music was perfect!

Ruby Skye in San Francisco is an incredible nightclub in the bay area. Located in downtown San Francisco and I had one of the best club experience of my life here.
There may be some negative reviews about the bouncers below, but they must have changed it. Because I didn't have to wait in line too long for will call and the bouncers were friendly and didn't mind answering any questions I had. They do get a little tough, but that's because people are stupid when they are drunk.
Inside, the club is beautiful with a big dance floor on the main floor. The music and djs are terrific and the people are beautiful and everybody is having fun.
Ruby Skye is a definite place to check out in the Bay Area.

Ruby Skye is San Francisco's #1 nightclub. This is the best place to go to see the world's top 100 DJs spinning on any given weekend. The music format is house/electronic in the main room, and hip-hop in the upstairs smoking lounge. The decor and lighting in this converted historic theater are top notch and very impressive. It is a big club, and has the best sound system in the city, so it is loud and hard to talk in here. But come to dance until 4am and enjoy the stiff drinks, go-go dancers and performance artists. Bottle service makes your night extra special and helps you avoid the crowds and give you a little more space of your own.

Absolutely the WORST!!! I've been to all the hot clubs in London, NYC, Miami and LA, but Ruby Skye is by far the WORST club to deal with..Rule # 1: DO NOT BUY TICKETS. If you buy tickets, be prepared to wait for 1+ hours in the Will Call/Guestlist line. Watch the GA people roll on in hours before you. By the way, when is there a line for ticketholders and guestlist?!?! (UPDATE: we found out that if you can't get in by the time the DJ plays- call TICKETWEB, They will REFUND your tickets because of Ruby Skye's greediness.) Rule #2: Do NOT do Guestlist. This is a joke. Sometimes Ruby Skye sends you an email that says you are on the guestlist, but you are really not. The joke is on you. Oh and wait, it gets better, the bouncer will yell at you because he is not smart enough to offer you the option to pay to get in - instead he yells at you to ""Get the F**k out and leave"". What kind of place doesn't want to take your money when there was a mistake on the guestlist?!? Oh wait, they must be making it all by taking ticket sales AND by taking in GA $$ at the same time. GENIUS! Wish I could run a SCAM like this.

Okay, first of all, this is my first review on a club/lounge. Ruby Skie was awsome from the speed of the lines, to the friendly bouncers, to the hostes, the music, drinks,etc. This was our first time coming to this place. We walked up to the line thinking we're going to be here forever...not the case. Line moved along quickly and when we got to the bouncers he greated us, very friendly and he allowed our group to go in together! How many clubs do you go to and they only let a number of people thru the door, sometimes seperating your group. The hostes was very friendly as well. The music was AMAZING! The sound quality impecable! I perposley stoud infront of the subwoofer to get a feel....i could actually stand infront of the speaker and still be able to have a conversation with my friend. In other words, the music was load enough and you could feel the base from the beats, yet so perfectly adjusted that i could still converse with my friend infront of the speaker....wow! The interior of the place was very nice...hard to describe...you have to see it. The bartenders very friendly, but i think the absolute best part of this club is the fact that there are all kinds of people, different ages, couples, punk rockers, tourists, and everyone went to enjoy the show from the DJ and minded their own business!!!!!! Some places you go to and you cant walk around without having someone staring you down...much more mature atmosphere.

Went to this club last weekend with my girl. Everything was amazing! Drinks, bartenders and the music! Man we were groovin! Man my head hurt the next day! All I can say is go check this place out. This is where the beautiful people get down and get funky! (although my girl didn't like when she saw me checkin out some of the other HOT chicks there!) Go catch your groove at this amazing place! You'll feel like a rock star!

Ok, I don't know were to start, perfect sound system, the crowed is their to enjoy the DJ's and get their dance on!, The bars inside are very large (3 of them) and a friendly helpful staff. Yeah the music can be loud, but for a amazing night blowing your ears out it's worth the damage. There's a cool indoor smoking room on the 2nd floor with some hiphop beats. Buy your tickets online so you don't have to wait in line as long or just show up a little early becuase the crowd tends to pick up around 11:30ish. I've been to this club too many times to remember and i can't wait to show up again with friends.

Never written a review of a dance club, but as a live sound engineer, the sound system is fantastic. If only all the shows I did had a system this great. But I degress....
I am mostly writing this review to dispute the 2 most recent reviews of the club. I visited the club on July 4th (yeah I know-independence day) to see Sasha & Bad Boy Bill. Never once was the crowd rude. Plenty of people bumped into me, and nearly all apologized. Sure there were people who were drunk....but come on...this is a dance club. How the heck do you think they make money? Surely not from ticket sales...
Speaking of the bar, I never had to wait more than a minute to get my drink, and they were quite potent. Definitely should not have had the last one that night....
I never had a problem getting in. Yes I bought the tickets by Ticketweb, but had them at Will Call. I don't think I waited more 3 minutes to get into the club. I arrived around 11pm.
I really like the club overall. Never had a problem with the staff at all-none of the horror stories I have seen here on City Search. The staff appeared relaxed and generally seemed to be having a good time.

DON'T BUY TICKETS TO ANY RUBY SKYE EVENT! If you print your tickets, they make you wait in the GA line. We asked if we could wait in the WILL CALL line (cause it was shorter) and they said they would refuse ticket holders and put them back in the GA line. We waited 1 1/2 hours last night in the GA Line and moved 10 feet. WILL CALL was even worse. We spoke with the owner of Ruby Sky and he said he hated working with TicketWEB because ""that's not how Ruby Sky works"". THEN DON""T SELL TICKETS!! Its very disappointing because a lot of great DJs come to that place. Now I know why the GA line is so long!

got invited to go to the famous White Party and had the worst night out in my 7 years of living in SF ....
(1) very rude crowd, probably drunk, on ecstasy, tourists (or all of the above) - and by very rude I mean as in having two drinks thrown off my hand by people walking around (no apologies), elbowed really hard several times by violent dancers (if you can call that dancing), being groped while walking out of the dance floor, having a couple of meat-heads following two of my buzzed friends around to see if they could get some action
(2) extremely loud sound system (playing house music), you could barely hear yourself talk, let alone other people
(3) understaffed bar, had to wait forever to get drinks (which I didn't get to enjoy thanks to the crowd)
if you enjoy any/all of the above, this is definitely the place for you...
The one star goes for the nice decoration of the venue - classical don't judge a book by it's cover .....

Ruby Skye has great music... but the bouncers and management has no sense of what the hell they are doing ... If you have a ""will call"" ticket u gotta wait for half an hour more, if u dont then u gotta pay 10-20 bucks more. If bouncers feel the place is crowded and they can pack more people they may throw you out claiming u r drunk ... if u r not drunk but u dont look dangerous, then in any case u might get thrown out cuz the bouncers are bored .... in short, u r paying atleast 20 bux in advance with no gaurantee of any good time ...

Ruby Skye is not only a very classy Club But features some of the best Trance D.J's in the world. This club has some of the best acts in the city! Their dancers wear some of the best costumes I have seen. Ruby's environment and security keep it a very safe and fun dance club. I should know I have been a regular there for 3+ yrs. I will continue going there as long as my legs permit. I love and have become close friends to alot of their people.

The music was good, they had this great violinist who play to the music being played. The VIP treatment is way below par. Do not pay for a private table and go VIP because it will end up costing you a fortune and the Bouncers and Customer reps there are terrible and will kick you out early if you look like your tired and taking a break on the couches. One Bouncer was very rude and was obviously suffering form a small man complex. He said his name was Tumday which was probably made up because he did not want to be held accountable for his actions. Overall I do not recommend this club. And if you do plan to go to this club go with regular admission and don?t pay extra just to be treated badly.

I really am not sure why anyone would pay $20 to get in this club??
1. We got there at 11pm and waited in line for 30 minutes only to get in an empty club -- They play the not
so cool hold the line gimmick
2. Once inside the drinks were over priced - $12 for a martini?
3. 99% of the people there were on a club bus tour and really were quite drunk and rude.
4. The music was just ok if you enjoy extremely loud techno / house type music.
Needless to say we will not be back....
