Our History

Located on Folsom St. between 7th and 8th, Club Raven is San Francisco’s Best Nightclub for dancing to Throwback Music Videos. 

Our SF Dance Club features two floors of nostalgic music with three separate bars, a range of VIP Tables, two DJ booths, and two separate dance floors. Up and down club

Our DJs play Throwback Hip Hop, Pop, and R&B Music Videos that invoke powerful feelings of nostalgia, and our hypnotic laser system lights up our upper dance floor to create an audio/visual nightlife experience that you must see for yourself.

Our SF dance club originally opened its doors as “The Up And Down Club” in the 1990s when it was owned by world-famous model Christy Turlington Burns. Known for Monday night jazz sessions, acid rock & trip-hop, the club made waves in the 90s SOMA nightlife scene.

From 2005 through 2011, the venue was known as Club Eight and hosted one of SF’s most famous weekly Gay Dance Parties, Club Dragon.

Then in 2012; Raven Bar was conceived to provide the best Throwback Dance Club Experience in San Francisco. Spinning nostalgic music videos from The 90s and beyond, Raven is the Bay Area’s Throwback King, playing the songs you grew up listening to, mixing Craft Cocktails, and hosting VIP Bottle Service with a helpful and friendly bar staff.

Raven Bar is open to the public from Wednesday through Sunday each week with live Video DJs spinning our exhilarating Throwback dance parties every Thursday through Sunday.
