A new venue called Halcyon opened in San Francisco earlier this month, which plans to also use its space for a nightclub as well as for weekly entertainment events like cabaret and dance classes. It is located in an industrial space on 314 11th Street in the South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood, and hosted its inaugural event on November 4 with sets from Israeli producer Guy J and Nottingham's Dave Seamen.

The space is owned by veteran San Francisco restauranteur and nightclub operator Gina Milano, who previously worked at the the now-defunct Audio nightclub next door to the current Halcyon location.

Upcoming events at the club include a B2B set from dance music veterans Doc Martin and DJ Sneak this weekend, as well as imminent sets from Jan Blomqvist and Visionquest. On November 11, it hosted the first of a three-date Cocoon residency, marking the first ever in San Francisco.

A new 5,000-capacity London venue called Printworks was announced earlier today, and in NYC a new club called Schimanski recently opened in the former Verboten location.
