    Beautiful venue, a designers dream. The décor is chic, stylish, elegant and dimly lit. The atmosphere charmed me. BAFOE had the entire back area, including a gorgeous lounge right behind the bar...shame no one was there! The group was surrounding the bar area in the center, causing congestion and making it a bit difficult to mingle. The only drawback was we needed better "flow". Otherwise completely wonderful :}
    BTW, heads up...Yerba Buena Lane is not marked, no street sign?!!? It is in a shopping area between 3rd & 4th streets on Market. I walked past it twice.

    Very noisy and people stayed crowded around the assigned bar maling it virtually impossible to circle around even though rest of facility was almost empty.

    Sorry I missed this event. Only found out too late there was an opening.. I will be more careful next time. This was supposed to be my first time with the group.

    The place is gorgeous, the staff friendly. The energy was a little low. Maybe, it is in the air or the stars ! Anyway, except with Geoff, I feel an outsider, nearly always. I must be so used to the great latino energy, that anything else is going tp be liw

    I finally met someone from my country, Belgium. I just. felt a little more low energy in compare with last time at "Palomino". I dont think it had something with the place.people were vere nice. Maybe, it was because most of the people were new
