Playboy magazine crowned 14 bars across the nation in its latest feature, "America’s Greatest Late-Night Bars," and our very own Endup made the cut.
This comes as no surprise to anyone who’s danced off a comedown until 4 a.m. at this Sixth Street classic. The LBGT-friendly dance club keeps your party going longer than you can and, as Playboy noted, "anything goes, and we mean anything."
And while the rest of San Francisco has to go to bed at 2 a.m., there are still plenty of places to party until last call. Check out the slideshow below for our favorite spots to end up. (Besides, of course, at the Endup.)

Where can you find passed Jell-O shots, White Castle cheeseburgers, DJs spinning until 1:59am, and all-night karaoke on a Sunday? At butter, that's where. And if the trans fat revolution has taught us anything, it's that nothing is better than butter.
The 540 is a delight for Richmond district locals, and is home to an unusual (but fabulous) 10pm-midnight happy hour, as well as a great collection of art for sale. It's rumored that one HuffPost staffer purchased a wedding gift off the wall at 2am the night before the wedding. All speculation, of course.
The kitchen stays open 'til 11 so you can grab a late-night pork sando with spicy mayo and slaw and spend the next three hours washing it down with cheap booze. And if the night goes sour, just sweeten it up with a warm brownie with Nutella fudge.
In the Mission, all roads eventually lead to the 500 Club. The club is the unofficial end of the night spot in the neighborhood. But with a seven-day-a-week happy hour, you can also start early and "see the horror that 9-5 brings on the weekend nights," as the website describes.
Some nights end in the Marina. When that happens, head to Horseshoe Tavern. This popular industry spot is most famous for its frequent Giants sightings, but its lesser-known charms (solid jukebox, cheap PBR, and pool table) are what keep us coming back for more. Horseshoe Tavern reminds us that the Marina still knows how to dive.
