Vessel SF is now reopen as Love + Propaganda.
A brand new club is opening up in San Francisco, a sign of good music to come. Brought to you by the owners and designers of Audio, the freshly minted Love and Propaganda opened this weekend with LA-based producer Goldroom headlining Friday’s premier, followed by rising stars Autograf and Kasbo spinning on Saturday. Co-owners David Brinkley and Danny Hai invested heavily in the 18,000 watt Funktion One sound system specifically designed for peak acoustics in the intimate venue.
Located in the same location as the recently retired Vessel, the redesigned interior features “an industrial aesthetic juxtaposed with neoclassical elements with a punk edge.” Chandeliers, gilded art and black leather seating all adorn the 5,700 square foot club which will offer 3D projection to compliment the high fidelity sound. With regards to the entertainment, brothers Peter and Chris Doukakis (also of Audio) plan to book an eclectic mix of DJs with genres spanning nudisco, house and indie-dance.
Love and Propaganda will bring a welcomed new late-night option to the Union Square/Financial District area for dance music fans. If Audio was the warm up, then L&P should be the grand slam.
- Vessel is a small, intimate venue with only a few tables and a small dance floor. You can dance right up to the DJ booth.
- One of the most unique things about vessel is that you can dance on the tables. This is extremely fun but can definitely also be dangerous – dance at your own risk!
- Tables at vessel are all shared with another party, except the one next to the DJ booth.
- Our favorite table is table 1 or 2 – gives you great access to the dance floor and a great view of the DJ.
- We have a guestlist for vessel which is usually free before 11 PM.
