About Temple SF

Billing itself as an eco-friendly way to party the night away, Temple is what you get when you mix the progressive environmentalism of San Francisco with a need to dance.   One of the cooler features of eco-efforts is the piezoelectric dance floor, which converts all the energy generated by pounding feet and shaking hips, into useable power for the club.

The overall theme at Temple is a minimalist, Asian-inspired mix of antique and modern, Buddha statues, Asian art, and bamboo, on a mostly whitewashed interior.  Lots of clean lines, cushy booths, and columns.  The interior allows the club to do a lot with the lighting, changing moods and atmosphere with dramatic changes to the lighting.

Inside the Shrine main room the dance floor is dotted with seating and cocktail tables, flanked by bars on either side, as well as a few booths, some VIP sections, and topped off by the DJ booth at the far end.  The upstairs mezzanine overlooks the main floor and offers additional VIP sections.

The downstairs Destiny lounge offers a smaller, more intimate version of the Shrine, with seating, bottle service, a full bar and DJ.  The Catacombs, on the bottom floor, is the same theme but with a darker atmosphere, lots of black and crimson.

All three floors cater to different genres, with EDM on the first two, and hip hop in the Catacombs.  Temple has played host to a long list of serious talent, including Mark Farina, Julius Papp, Junior Sanchez and DJ Dan.

The crowd is younger, more casual, and because of the different crowds each room attracts, reasonably diverse.

An added perks to partying at Temple is the Ki Sushi restaurant attached to the club.  Offering late night eats, and also serving other Japanese dishes, it’s a nice option to either start (which can get you in free), or finish your night.
