The chosen dance floor

Second Saturday, the monthly night for Jewish young adults in The Cellar nightclub in downtown San Francisco, has been a staple of the Jewish young adult scene since it began in 2001. If you haven’t checked it out, you’re missing out on great atmosphere, drink specials served up by bartenders from the community, great appetizers and talented DJs. So put on a nice outfit and head over for a night of shmoozing, noshing and dancing.
