Best Of SF: Best Ways to End The Night

We've brought you our picks for the Best Of SF: Arts, Entertainment & Nightlife, but for those for serious night owls, here are our late-night picks.

Classic Finish
The art of keep-on-keeping-on is defined here. From [Kontrol] to Ghettodisco, the party at The Endup rarely stops—and neither do you, as you take breakfast at the T-Dance, Sundays at 6 a.m. 401 Sixth St., 415-646-0999, theendup.com

What Would Peaches Do?
Close out the night diva-style. Peaches Christ fluffs and freshens our favorite culty pleasures at this year’s Midnight Movies series, starting with Prince’s epic Purple Rain (July 2–3). Bridge Theatre, 3010 Geary Blvd., 415-267-4893, landmarktheatres.com

Name Your Poison
Park yourself at Hemlock Tavern’s jam-packed bar with a cold PBR and sack of toasty peanuts, and bend an ear to one of the hippest free jukeboxes in the city. You might even learn to love something new. 1131 Polk St., 415-923-0923, hemlocktavern.com

For Surrealsies
Post-bar crawl, stumble into It’s Tops Coffee Shop located just off the Castro and prepare to be both entertained by the sodden shenanigans and nourished by the bacon waffles. Everything tastes better with bacon, especially at 2 a.m. 1801 Market St., 415-431-6395

Mighty Fine
Armed a rep for booking solid late-nighters, showcasing big names like J.Rocc and Miguel Migs, Mighty just might inspire you to get up and dance like you’ve never danced before.
119 Utah St., 415-762-0151, mighty119.com
