Previous Entry Mezzanine Nov. 14th, 2005 @ 09:06 am Next Entry
Mezzanine's been open for YEARS in SF, and until this weekend, I'd never, ever been. After some minor encouragement from studlycaps, I decided "[I could] sleep when [I'm] dead" and set out to get there at 11.

After some minor issues, such as forgetting car (and house) keys inside of a locked apartment, we got there at maybe 12ish. I was rather impressed with the space... and dramatically under-impressed with the crowd. Most know that I tend to go for fairly twinky (or, fit but not buffed) guys... and this was definately not the place to find that. The funniest was always the guy that had a decent chest with a huge belly. I can think of justified reasons for this situation to occur, but it was still rather... disgusting unattractive to look at, especially with shirts off. Ew.

I bumped into some people that I wasn't expecting to see... learned some more things that bothered me... and after some immediate reaction-anger, got over it pretty quickly, and with studlycaps and jetboyca, managed to have a really good time.

Will I go back? Maybe... dunno... maybe if the DJ's really good. It's nowhere to be avoided, and yet (being a bit arrogant) as I told my close company, it feels kinda sad to know that you walked in the door with the hottest people in the place. Point being, I'm not going back if I'm looking for anything... that's definately not the place to find it... at least not for me. But, the music was good, and the attention was... inspiring... so maybe sometime. :)

Mezzanine has the best sound system in SF. It also has decent parking and pleasant bar staff. It's clean and its well planned out - who cares though if there are no boys?

Mezzanine is a circuit club, and the circuit scene by definition are older professional 29-45 yos.

Maybe perhaps continue to check out the ultra hipster-tots at Underground SF?

Don't take it personally, babe... I wasn't really trying to slam it as much as it might sound. :) It definately has it's redeeming qualities, and the sound system and space are some of them.

I had a pretty good idea of what to expect when I walked in the door... I'd just never truly experienced it before (esp having never gone to Mass, Fresh, or Universe, either)... though I'd never heard age ranges specifically before.

Maybe I should check out Underground... maybe it'd be more my style... who knows. Overall though, i did have a good time, enjoyed the music, and danced with my shirt off all night. It wasn't bad... these are just my anecdotal comments about it, since I'm betting everyone else that reads it has prob been before, and doesn't need the full description in all of it's glory. :)

Oh I didn't take it personally - I havent set foot in Mezzanine in at a least year (studlycaps was the one manage to drag me out there too).

This is a general statement and not directed at you (though it may include you), but I've been rubbed the wrong way by quite a few people who's attitude re: things is profoundly opposite of my own; namely when it comes to their priorities and the things they value when looking for a place to spend their social time.

I'm not so much judging of it as I am confused by it; I wish I could understand where they're coming from, but can't.

I wouldn't go to Mezzanine now because that scene burned itself out.. all the hot boys who went there from 2002-2004 are now all fat, in rehab, in hiding, out of state, etc. The people you witnessed there are probably the last remaining dregs.

Dear god, I miss Universe - and that place was a hole. :)

Universe was fun because it wasn't in the Castro =X That, and of course the hot sweaty boys dancing with their shirts off!

I don't go there to people-gaze, really... that's what Fresh at Ruby Skye is for. It's just a good nearby spot to hear some (usually) decent music on a great sound system and have a good time.

Babe you and I ought to get together. I would love to "get to know you" if you know what I mean.
