If a friend, family member or total stranger said they were looking for some great dance clubs in the Bay Area, what would you tell them? Most of us would recommend that famous "City by the Bay," San Francisco, and its world-famous neighborhoods and hotspots: classic jazz clubs in the Fillmore, or hot Latin spots in the Mission, or maybe some psychedelic spots in the still-funky Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.
Or maybe you'd recommend heading across the Bay to Oakland, where many big time rap stars and club DJ's got their start.
Most likely, though, you'd forget to mention Berkeley, the eclectic college town best known for its famous protests in the 1960's. Contrary to popular opinion, though, Berkeley is not stuck in the 60's. This young college town has kept up with the times and offers just as varied and fun a mix of dance clubs as anywhere in the Bay Area, like the vibrant and unique 924 Gillman. So, when a friend asks where to direct her dancing feet, don't forget to recommend Berkeley.
