EDITOR S NOTE This is the year that 1992 kids start turning 21! Because it’s summer, all of my friends that have just turned 21 are coming back to the Bay Area from college. Lately, I have been getting a lot of calls saying, “Hey Sam! I just turned 21! Do you know any good bars or clubs in SF?” It’s always embarrassing when I have to tell them, “Actually…I don’t.” Turning 21 quite recently, I am just starting to explore my new found powers of purchasing alcohol, staying up past curfew, and going to local pubs/bars in Pleasanton. Meanwhile, I have yet to explore and tame the newly accessible 21+ territory of

Fog City, which is only a reasonable thirty minutes away. With my growing love affair of the wildly vast nightlife scene in SF, I can hardly imagine what crazy adventures await! 415 After Dark has a simple meaning behind it. 415 is the area code for San Francisco but what is there to do when the sun goes down, you’re not ready to go home yet and you still want to hang out with your friends? Guess what, this magazine has you covered! From hot trendy clubs, to chill underground bars, then to restaurants that are still open at 4am for those munchies, 415 After Dark is your guide for a fun and adventurous night. In order to communicate with my audience, my magazine will have a fun and experimental

Editors drink:

layout for the hip and trendy. However, I still want to display a simple yet clean look which I will showcase with my typeface choice for my much more older audience who just want to know where to hang out and have a few drinks. 415 After Dark is intended for everyone who is 21+ years old, ranging from the party-hard’s to the more relaxed and laidback (and everyone in between). No matter what kind of event, bar, restaurant, club, etc, the magazine will inform the audience through actual first-hand experience written articles which help the readers accurately discover the San Francisco nightlife or avoid those unfortunate nights of boredom, bad wexperiences, wasted money, time, or problems.

The difference between this magazine and others is that... THERE ARE NONE! Even online reviews of any place or event can be biased, inaccurate, or be too short to even be helpful. Some magazines simply have an article or a little page in the back that is dedicated to trendy bars or events that are happening in the city. Some magazines will showcase special drinks to make at home before going out for a night in the town. But, for this magazine, it is fully and absolutely dedicated to the nightlife jungle in San Francisco. It will not only include the good bars, clubs, and the favorite places, but special events, fashion, drinks, food, and much more. So read on, pick your place, go out, and get waisty pants!

Well look no further because there are two spectacular 24-hour diners just waiting to cater to your need. Lori’s Diner, which is on 336 Mason, which was opened in 1986, is open 24 hours!

You never know who you’re going to see at Pinecrest! Lori’s Diner


Twerking, the newest dance craze to hit the nation. Its seen everywhere on social networking and is even seen in our streets ( watch?v=7mJRzjQiTCU&feature=c4-overview&list=UUFnsk 9UgOhVRnKHdynzU2A) The question is, what is it exactly? Twerking was introduced into hip-hop culture by New Orleans bounce music scene. In 1993, DJ Jubilee recorded a song called, “Do The Jubilee All.” In which he chanted, “Twerk baby, twerk baby, twerk, twerk, twerk.” In 2000, the dance move was finally receiving recognition in national releases, when the Atlanta-based Ying Yang Twins released their debut single, “Whistle While You Twurk,” which received national airplay peaking at #17 on the Hip Hop Chart. It was also further referenced in their 2002 follow-up release, “Say I Yi Yi,” which prominently features the lyrics, “She got her hands up on her knees and her elbows on her thighs, she like to twerk and that’s for certain I can tell that she fly.” In 2011 The

Twerk Team was mentioned in the song “Round of Applause” by Waka Flocka Flame featuring Drake, including the line, “Bounce that ass, shake that ass like the Twerk Team”. However, the song that made twerking popular, and the reason why you see it everywhere is, “Express Yourself” by Nicky Da B & Diplo.

Welcome to temple 8


an Francisco, the City by the Bay. The only city to have an 80% recycling conversion rate, a city where tap water is cleaner than bottled water, a city full of diverse equal people, where progressive ideas are forged, countless commerce buildings soar, sport teams perform, and an amazing nightlife scene to boast. And when that Friday turns into night, a whole new city is born; as bars, clubs, and restaurants open their doors. One such club, called “Temple” stands on 54 Howard Street. Unique, creative, and bold, “Temple” attempts to set itself apart from the often wasteful nightclub business, all the while giving the best diversified nightlife experience in SF. »

Created in 2007, in the heart of the SOMA district, “Temple” Nightclub which is host to a world-class nightlife experience in an amazing audio-visual environment. “Temple” is San Francisco’s first award winning Green Venue in the whole nation. Owner and founder of “Zen Compound”, Paul Hemming was tired of the traditionally wasteful nature of the hospitality industry. So, he set his sights on creating the ‘Greenest Nightclub’ in the world. As a result, he created the base foundation for a living, breathing hub for education, culture and creative recreation that strictly adheres to the triple bottom line of people, Planet and Profit. Housed inside the “Zen Compound” lies “Temple” Nightclub, which is a ‘Green Nightclub’ and ‘Ki Sushi’, which is a sustainable Sushi and Izakaya bar. Paul Hemming brings a vision to the Zen Compound that focuses on revolutionizing the nightclub and hospitality industry by “Greening” them. The ‘Zen Compound’ is an entertainment complex, with it’s finger on society’s pulse, the whole idea is designed to go well beyond a traditional nightclub and world-class

restaurant. More than a place for people to unwind and stimulate their senses, the “Zen Compound” is a hub of creative spirituality. Visitors of the compound create and perform art, music, and dance while they are enriching their Western experience with an Eastern education. The Zen Compound merges modern design with antiquities dating back to the 11th century and ancient philosophy with cutting edge technology. In addition, it houses a culinary visual and audio spectacle while cultivating the first pioneering program for nightclub sustainability in the U.S. The question is, what makes them particularly green? Well, most club venues traditionally use twenty five times more resources than an average household and with over 2,500 people a week coming through their doors, resource management is crucial! All of their food and liquids are centerally managed/processed through a recycled and composite waste system, all events are “low to no waste” which means they use corn cups and “” donates used kitchen grease for bio diesel fuel. They also have interface carpet tiles and low-flow toilets.

Owner of Temple Born in 1974 in Taiwan, Paul Hemming has always been compelled to explore creativity and share those experiences with others. As a child, his family and him traveled between Taiwan, Hawaii, and the Pacific Northwest, settling wherever his linguistics professor father had a teaching position. One of Hemming’s first creative impulses however, came when he was 19 years old, when he moved from Seattle to San Francisco to attend film school at San Francisco State University. There, he reveled not only in the creative outlet of filmmaking, but also discovered another passion as a DJ in clubs. After a building fire destroyed all of his possessions, including his senior film project, Hemming left school and took what he refers to as “a musical detour.” His hobby soon became a career, with Hemming

“ The fire was a sign that I should experiment with different creative outlets before settling on filmmaking.” booking gigs at nightclubs and private events which eventually led to him opening Zen City Records—a community space for DJs in Oakland and San Francisco that housed an Internet radio station, recording studio, art gallery, and record label. The connections he made in the club world eventually led him to open Temple nightclub in 2007, which combined influences from his eclectic background and became the centerpiece for the creative epicenter known as Zen Compound. The 22,000-square-foot, eco-conscious, entertainment complex combines the sophisticated yet sustainable cuisine from Prana and Ki restaurants with energyinspiring entertainment.

Sustainable Sushi Restaurant Situated in the heart of Temple Nightclub, KI is a modern take on a tried-and-true Japanese establishment: the venerable izakaya.

The space is surrounded by LED lit shoji screens, geisha and samurai artwork from UK-based artist Hush, known worldwide for his street-art-style blend of anime-inspired and pop-art images, and local San Francisco artist Micha LeBrun.

No matter how drunk this person gets you can barely tell, apart from a little extra rosiness in their cheeks.

The person that decides that they want to do anything with anyone anywhere anyhow, right now.

The person that crys over everything! If something spills you cry, if there is a cat and you think its cute, you cry while you pet it.

Some random ass person who is so super friendly that they offer ridiculous things that they probably won’t remember after 5 minutes. The friend or new acquaintance that never lets you know how they feel about you... until alcohol makes its evening debut in their bloodstream. Someone that is most likely a sarcastic jackass in real life who turns into what their sarcasm is covering up in the first place. You think you’re invinsable! You’re jumping off stuff and taking double shots of tequila. Why not! You’re SUPER MAN!
