Yerba Buena Social Club is a fun Saturday salsa social that brings out dancers from all over the Bay. The event is held at Inner Mission SF (former location of CELLSpace), a classy venue which feels like an abandoned theater, with its high ceiling, large mirrors, and various props & decorations. The entrance to the venue even features a little art gallery. It's definitely a different vibe than your typical salsa social held at a bar or dance studio.
The event itself draws a big crowd, with the dance floors packed by around 11pm. There are often fun themes for the event, and many of the attendees play the part by dressing up in their finest. In addition to the social dancing, there are often performances by local dance groups and performers. There is plenty of street parking nearby, and the dance floor is nice and spacious.
One of the strange things about the event is that it is a "BYOB" event, as in "bring your own beer". They don't serve any alcohol at the venue, which is minus points for me, but you are welcome to bring your own. Unfortunately, that makes the event 21 and over only, so college students need not apply. The schedule for the event is pretty erratic as well, with the event taking place on random Saturdays throughout the month (UPDATE: The event now happens on the 1st Saturday of every month), so it can be difficult to know when the next social will be.
These are just minor quibbles though. Yerba Buena Social Club is a great Saturday night salsa social, and is the new must-attend event for serious dancers in San Francisco.
