While it somehow doesn’t feel as fresh as it did when it opened in 2001 (take the name for instance: so…2001), the Matrix still attracts a fair amount of female talent in an area with no shortage of it. A cut above its dive-y neighbors like Mauna Loa and the Horseshoe, the Matrix draws more of a slinky black dress crowd. But what the Matrix lacks in beer pong it more than makes up for in scenery. Matrix’s location is a blessing to some and a curse to others: the “Marina Triangle,” or, as some would have it “Douchebag Central.” And while we must admit there is a certain Jersey Shore element at play, there are few areas with more bar options in such a compact geographic area-– and so many recently discharged sorority girls.

Venue Tip: 

Get a spot on one of the couches along the wall and watch the show. The window seats are fun for watching the latecomers line up outside, but the fireplace will obscure your view of the dance floor action. Push your way to the back room where you may have better luck getting a timely drink.

The Good: 
It’s like a mini Vegas club in SF.
The Bad: 
What makes this place great (youngish girls in short skirts) is what can also make it so annoying: your average Matrix-goer is not lowest-maintenance model on the lot.
