Mighty (119 Utah St., 415-762-0151, Mighty119.com) is a swanky medium-size venue featuring a large dance floor and an elevated stage, where international and local DJs spin downtempo, hip-hop, breaks, or house, along with occasional live bands.

Milk (1840 Haight St., 415-387-6455, MilkSF.com) has two bars, an elevated stage for DJs, and the occasional live band performance, in addition to glamour mirrors and a dance floor that's usually packed on weekends.

Red Devil Lounge (1695 Polk St., 415-921-1695, RedDevilLounge.com) is a 300-capacity, two-tiered venue with three large, clean bathrooms, two full bars, and a stage.

Rockit Room (406 Clement St., 415-387-6344, Rock-It-Room.com) features free wi-fi, an iTunes jukebox, a full bar, table seating on two levels, plus live bands Tuesday through Saturday nights playing jam, rock, jazz, hip-hop, and covers.

Ruby Skye (420 Mason St., 415-693-0777, RubySkye.com) is quite possibly the most straight-up bling-blingy glam-slammin' venue in the entire city of San Francisco, featuring DJs and live music acts regularly.

Slim's (333 11th St., San Francisco, 415-255-0333, Slims-SF.com) features rock, metal, jazz, blues, R&B, and reggae most nights of the week, and is one of the few all-ages venues in the city.

Thee Parkside (1600 17th St., 415-503-0393, TheeParkside.com) is the place to hang your hat if you're into punk, metal, or country. Regulars can be found enjoying a burger and fries at the bar, or playing ping-pong in the outdoor patio out back.

Yoshi's San Francisco (1330 Fillmore St., San Francisco, 415-655-5600, Yoshis.com) offers the same high caliber of talent in the genre of jazz as the Oakland original, but the state-of-the-art venue also books R&B, soul, and world-music acts.
