Ruby Skye, the legendary nightclub located in Union Square in San Francisco and Slide Lounge are set to close in the next few months.
Nate Valentine, the man behind Harper & Rye and the Marina's Tipsy Pig is planning on opening a new music hall and bowling alley in the coming year.
Valentine plans to team up with Snowball Ventures founders Chad Donnelly and Scott Murphy who run SnowGlobe Music Festival in Lake Tahoe.
“We heard rumblings that the Ruby Skye/Slide space was available, and at first it sounded daunting,” Valentine said. “But it’s really an incredible opportunity to be in a great part of San Francisco.”
Valentine plans to make the new location more of a music hall rather than a dance club. He plans to make the lineup be 50% EDM and DJ nights, while the rest will be a mixture of rock bands and comedy shows.
Valentine plans to keep Ruby Skye and Slide open until late April or early May and then will reopen with the new additions later this year.
