Everything is great except the one taller manager with a tattoo who always drinks on the job. He is disrespectful and makes patrons feel unwelcome. It's a shame since the rest of the club is great even on a slow night. The manager with the glasses is the only one who is welcoming and prompt for service.
Went to Penthouse on Friday night. It blew my mind with the experience we had. There were aerial performances, masquerade dances, creative dance, exceptional cocktail service, attentive management and beautiful women. Not once did myself and our friends feel pressured in a typical "strip club" manner to just spend money. The manager checked in multiple times to ask if we were having a good time and in the end I felt like we were more family than customers. 9pm turned to 1am before you knew it. Thanks! Exceptional food too.
Went there with my friends on Saturday. Ladies are fine and friendly. Did the place swept me off my feet? No. Did I stay there long? No, just half an hour. Will I go again? Probably not.
My husband and I came to the Penthouse with our friends to celebrate our bachelorette/bachelor party all together.When the manager saw me and my husband arriving in our bachelorette/bachelor outfits, he understood we were here to celebrate and have a good time. And we had an amazing night thanks to him! Some of us got comp entry and the whole staff came to check on us the whole night to make sure we were having a great time. Even the dj was mentioning our names several times during the night. The shows are amazing and the place is beautiful. I never had a great opinion about gentleman's clubs but this one is just awesome! I was the first one to leave the party. I live at a walking distance so I was planning on walking home. But the manager didn't let me do so and called his personal chauffeur for me to make sure I was going home safe.Huge kuddos to the whole staff! We will be back, that's for sure
The girls were not very attractive or engaging. And they only get topless. Not very exciting.
want to find the sexiest asain bartender in sf? here it is, Justina is super friendly and beautiful ;)
Worst customer service of any bar/strip club in SF on Broadway. Bartender tried to rip us off and short changed us $20 for our $45 drink order. When we spoke with the manager regarding the issue he simply walked away mid-sentence. Very unprofessional and had no care towards customer service or the mistake they made. Yes, it is a strip club, but they should still treat customers as if they are at a regular bar.
So much fun
As a man, I am inclined to write this as a 5 star raving review.As a person that experienced shady service and complete disregard of courtesy, this will not be a flattering review.The story: Large group of us (17-18 or so) booked a 3 course dinner and bottle service. The email and phone-call exchanges occurred for several weeks prior to our event. We finally chose the menu, paid a deposit and proceeded to get everyone amped up for a fun night on Broadway.The Drinks & Dinner: Drinks were on par price wise, my bill was over $200 and I thought that was generous given that we ordered several shots and drinks (just on my tab). So the bartender should get 5 stars.---The Food: First Course was lobster bisque, decent. 2nd Course was Steak, pretty normal tasting, not too flavorful and certainly not worth the price. The dessert was some chocolate cake that was okay but tasted as if it were store bought.The Service from Management: I understand it was a Friday night in the City, but it was completely empty when we were eating and we wanted to make our way downstairs for our bottle service to watch the show. Management disagreed with allowing us to bring our group downstairs! They said that they could provide our bottle service upstairs only, where there is no action, no dancing, and even LESS PEOPLE!!!There was a manager that could pass for an awful Robert Downey jr look-alike; and he was a jerk to keep this PG if you know what I mean.Key Points: --Not willing to work with us at all--Their club was super empty at 11:30pm --We had been told that we could go downstairs and then the one manager said no it was just super lame sauce. Why have one manager say one thing and another says no? HELLO!!! COMMUNICATION ISSUES MUCH?Anyways, we were not impressed and Ill never go back.
Angel, the hostess was freaking awesome. Food was good and the managers took care of us. Girls are freaking hot!
Awesome place to eat. The filet is off the hook. Management is top notch and knows how to show their customers a great time. I'm going to frequent this place more. The Girls are cherry on top.
Would you believe the best Happy Hour and the best looking bar in North Beach is in The Penthouse on Broadway and Montgomery. With $2 import beer, well drinks and no cover Monday through Friday before 5pm (they open at 4pm), you really can't go wrong. The scantily clad smoking Hotties strutting around doesn't hurt either. The Penthouse has, without a doubt, THE nicest bar/club in North Beach. I've been a customer of this location since back in the Boy's Toys days and it's never looked better than it does now. The decor is immaculate along with the staff from the 1st person you meet at the door to the last person you meet when you're leaving - everyone is a consummate professional. Whenever my friends arrive, we feel like Royalty being welcomed home. When we leave we're already planning on when we're coming back. Women enjoy this place. It's such an amazingly nice and inviting atmosphere that my friend, his wife and all of her friends enjoy coming over for happy hour. I have other friends who bring their girlfriends (it was their GF's idea) and everyone has a great time. The Penthouse hits the top mark by simultaneously being classy 'and' comfortable whether you want to drink, eat dinner or just lounge (or a combination of all 3) but don't get me wrong. If you want to enjoy more than just the happy hour drinks and the amazing food and ambiance, the Penthouse women are drop-dead gorgeous and Smokin' Hot. Whether you stay after happy hour or not, The Penthouse is the best place to get your night started and if you're lucky enough to chat with Jonny, Akio or any of the other managers, bartenders or staff that make this place amazing, you're probably going to end up staying. You'll certainly choose to come back for more!
Good lord if I could give zero stars I would, ouch this place was really that bad I'm sorry. It was forty bucks a piece to get in at 10 o'clock. Yes you read that right. Most expensive cover I've ever paid. But we thought hey lets give it a shot we always pass this place and have never gone in.The place was dead. Bad sign. My bf and I got some drinks and sat stage side. The first couple girls were thin, I mean realllll thin, like anorexic thin, like anorexic and a meth problem thin. The last girl was so hideous I just didn't know what to do. My bf and I were in shock and we just kept looking down or away. You know it's bad then cuz I will typically look at any naked woman and be appreciative, but this, this was just horrible. I'm not trying to talk shit or be mean but I was seriously just completely shocked at this last dancer. Such masculine jaw and frame, I just couldn't believe my eyes, it was painful to watch, she was trying hard and the other two people sitting stage side were completely ignoring her as well. I normally always tip at least a buck or two out of courtesy because I mean these girls are getting nude for your entertainment but good lord!! I was resolving to at least throw out a single when she just up and ran off stage.At this point I just felt bad and we tried to slurp down our drinks as quickly as we could so we could leave. An Indian girl tried to get us to get a couples dance. She was pushy and totally uninterested. We tried to decline politely but she persisted ad we finally just up and left.Do yourself a favor and walk 5 mins down the street to Hustler. Prettier girls by far, better and more enticing environment. You'll be much more pleased.
Loved it. The food was pretty good and the show was fun. I've been to the Sapphire in vegas and this was def much more fun! The drinks there are a bit on the traditional side being not too many exotic/innovative drinks. The service is great. (Could also be that my bf & I got there around 9/9:30 so it's a bit early). Loved the ambience. It's kinda hip ...though on the sleazy side. lol The canopies are a fun touch.Tip: get there a bit early...we got seated right by the pole (literately like 10 ft away on the 2nd floor w/ the downstair stage right there...The food/drinks are a bit on the expensive side...at least no admission fee if u eat at the restaurant
Definitely a good place for a guys night. The dancers here sure are fit and healthy looking, and more attractive. And, they seemed to enjoy working there, more often than not.The DJ could tone down the overenthusiastic announcements but that's a minor gripe as the music he plays/chooses is my type (house, dance, upbeat, even some foreign tunes). It's like a club at times.There is a bar if you prefer sitting there, and a few TVs usually showing some sporting event. The waitresses are friendly too. Shots all around is the norm. Downstairs snack foods were only okay and is on the saltier side. I will return to try the regular food upstairs.When leaving, a poet's words always resonate,"Excuse me (excuse me),But I might drink a little bit more than I should tonight,And I might take you home with me if I could tonight..."
My review is probably a bit generous due to going on the free night, heavily inebriated. I will update on a subsequent visit.Swanky decor. I've never been to Vegas, but I imagine it's like this. Lots of blue and purple uplighting and shit.Free food. Can't complain about some smoked salmon crostini, oysters, and sushi on the reg.$8 Coors Light bottles. This is actually a detriment, and my homie's purchase elicited a disappointed *smh* response. You get stamped for re-entry, just go to one of the many neighborhood liquor stores.Photo op with pornstar. Nicole Aniston was hosting. Make your profile pic the envy of every furry-palmed neckbeard on your friend's list. Even better, have your photographer friend pretend there's a camera malfunction so you can go supercreep and cop a longer feel.Good-looking dancers. Less variety than some places. Seems like the club is concentrating on that "tallish skinny girl with c cups" look. You can grab some ass for a dollar (I grabbed four by my count). I'm pretty sure the club "makes it rain" to encourage similar behavior. I'd advise against following suit.It was cool.Oh, and the lusty lady is just down the street if you don't feel like wanking it in the men's room like a normal person.
last yr for the bday boy we had dinner and strippers in vegas.. this yr it was the same except in the city..they had a few cute girls and a friend bought me my second ever lap dance (the first was in vegas).. i originally wanted a different girl but the bday boy disappeared getting his own private lap dance for 2 hrs! the cute asian girl i was trying to wait for was named joi.. she's really good and made a few mental notes watching her perform.. penthouse is pretty spacious and the decor is pretty nice..i'd come back again if someone asked me to
Came here for New Years and it was one of the most disappointing experiences I've ever had. No open bar, and the environment didn't feel very "moulin rouge" like they advertised. There was a photographer, but none of my friends (in total a party of eight) had our pictures taken ever. The guests were all trashy (a couple grinding heavily at 8pm), practically no one was dancing, a couple of old guys (read: 60) fist-pumping around young women. And there was no champagne toast like they promised in their advertisement. Lesson learned: don't pay $50 for a NYE party without an open bar.
Came in for a peak and spent the nite!!! Had an awesome time with great company!! The bartender was certainly beautiful as sport smart!! She kept me on my toes with fun convo!! And little Chelsie , the cocktail waitress also kept me full with the delicious beef springrollz!!! And lets not forget the acrobatic cirque de soleil, miss joy, for finishing the night with an awesome experience!! Lived in vegas for 18 yrs, this felt like home!! Happy hour beer was at $2 a bottle...can't pass that up if ur in the hood just wanting great company n ambiance!!! Definitely will keep coming back!!
Dear Michael Ellis,After trying Dry Creek I thought to myself, "why not. It's not your traditional environment, but good food is good food."While I realize that most chefs have many helpers under them, as the head chef, everything that comes out of the kitchen represents you as a Chef!-The matradee was the only bright spot of the night.. He was attentive and supremely helpful. -You can't take the meal seriously when there's constantly girls walking around soliciting dances.-The food was overpriced and subpar all across the board. I asked for medium rare and got well done. The Cheese Tots just tasted like giant balls of blue-cheese and nothing else. The mushrooms were greasy and the spinach was a joke.I tell people to think outside the box. The only problem is that sometimes you're so far out, you forget what the box is suppose to look like.Stick to what you know, good food. This establishment is a giant leap back from the quality we expect from you.Sincerely,A saddened fan
Just passing by on a random tuesday night while visiting the city. The club looked so great from the outside that I decided to go see what was in there. Surprise, it actually was a stripclub (I didn't know about the famous Penthouse...) and it looked even greater inside! The host was so beautiful that I asked her if she was that girl on the cover of their Penthouse Magazine haha, true story! I only paid a $10 cover charge because tuesday apparently is their "perfect 10's" day. Drank their $5 belvedere drinks, tried their $10 big ass burger and had a great time! I'd definitely go back asap with all my boyfriends!
Food came out extremely late. Steak wasn't cook to med rare like I asked. But it was kinda fun watching people strip while eating haha
by far this is the best club in the city!!! upscale, great customer service from everyone, the women that i spoke with all had wonderful attitudes and great smiles. I will defiantly come here for dinner, a great place to lounge and have a good time with classy people!!! love it!
I came here for my birthday and the place is absolutely gorgeous! It's what you would imagine a super high-end club in Vegas to look like. For anyone doubting that a strip club can be classy, one night in here will change your mind. The entire staff was excellent: our host was such a gentleman and I loved our cocktail waitress Erica! All in all I had an amazing night. I'd recommend this place for bachelor parties, guys night out, girls night out...any event really. Oh, and 2 story stripper pole = awesome.
Overpriced beer, drinks and food. Below average dancers...I thought you had to be sexually attractive to be a stripper? I guess anything with girl parts and a bad weave can get hired here.I really, really wanted to like renovation they did when it went from Showgirls to Penthouse. But all they did was jack up the prices and change the interior to distract you from the fact you are now paying more money to look at the old lineup from Showgirls. Yawn. Two stars only because they got rid of the horrible mismatched decor from Showgirls.
For any of you who saw this club before the remodel, you will not believe that it is the same place. Without a doubt, this is the sexiest club in all of San Francisco. Or, as I overheard another patron say during one of the soft openings, "This is more Vegas than Vegas." The Penthouse Club and Steakhouse has created a space that is enticing, welcoming and comfortable for women. The grand opening was spectacular, and I would say at least half of the people in attendance were women. This club has succeeded in creating a sexualized space where those who would not normally frequent a gentleman's club feel comfortable. The upstairs VIP and dining area is stunning. Sitting at one of the enclosed dining booths offers an intimate dining experience. Depending on your preference you can adjust the curtains for more or less privacy. And, here comes the big shocker, the food is fantastic. Who knew that a gentleman's club could offer such a great menu, and one that pays attention to the importance of supporting local farmers? I don't eat much red meat, and fortunately this menu has a lot to offer for the non-steak eaters. I had the hamachi starter, the corn grits, and uni crusted black cod, They were all fabulous. As a Kentuckian, I am particular about my grits, and am thrilled to have found a place in SF that does corn grits their due justice. As for the performers, in my opinion the Penthouse and the Gold Club have the best looking performers in all of San Francisco. As the new club in town, I have a feeling that the Penthouse is going to be the place that pulls the best exotic dancers as they will want to be a part of this incredible space.
is this the club that vinny runs??
Haven't been to this club in a long time. Does anyone know if "Jaylene" (?) still works there?

hello. i am going to be moving to the area, and i am looking for a club to work at. can anyone give me information on how the money is here and what it's like? thanks
Went during early evening. Beautiful hostess greeted me - cheked my ID and let me in for free. I left a $ tip. Inside is swank and huge. I sat comfortably and nice waitresses got my drinks quickly. the dancers came by and greeted me or passed a nice smile. I wiggled my crotch and got comfortable in the plush booth. Said to myself - this place is cool. Went up to the stage and tipped $ and got my face rubbed by the girls crotch. man! (... dick cheney need that treatment and he'll start doing something for the country). Finally, i approached a girl and asked if I could enjoy a dance from her. After that it was heaven.
best club I have been to so far, have good draft specials.$2 11pm girls are attentive n nice.will even sit w/ u after u tell them politely that u don't have any money to spit out.makes u feel welcomed and u actually get to conversate w/ these girls.had 2 of them sitting w/ me n 1 coming to ask if i wanted a dance.was there for a couple of hours.went up stage n tipped them $. Get this..they even talk to u while they're dancing for u!How good can that get? My rec's go out to the Pent girls..Naomi, LEGEND, Miss Kitty, Crystal, Persia, Gemini, Trinity, n all.Legend is the most wanted by everyone! lap dances are $20. But if u talk w/ the girls for a while they discount u to $10. Sundays are $10lap dances.classy and no cellulite infested
I agree with Mark. I was there for a while and eventually had to flag girls down. The whole time the DJ was berating the audience to tip the girls, but I could barely get someone to come give me a dance. It was a Monday and they had $10 dances, but still... I wasn't in the mood to go up to the stage, but still felt kind of ignored. That said, I eventually found a beautiful blond to come dance for me, which made up for the earlier part of the night. My first beer was $2 (special?), but they went up to $5.25 after that.
Went to this this club with high expectations, I guess I should not have. Possibly the day I went, it was a tuesday and it was $5 dance night so it brought out alot of people. The girls ranged from 5's to 8, no absolute drop dead gorgeous ones. Drinks were fairly reasonable and the food was ok. There were not enough dancers to handle the crowd and it seemed that the girls were sticking to people they knew. I was there for 2 hours and not one of the dancers even said hi, do you want a dance, F**K OFF, Nothing! I guess they all make enough money and don't need mine. The waitresses were nice and helpful, the club decor is nice and they have valet parking. All in all, I would rate the visit a 4 on the 0-10 scale.
