Rich’s is the Beatles of gay dance clubs in San Diego. The huge floor gets packed, sweaty, and sometimes ridiculous. Due to the sheer number of attendees, there’s an inevitable mix of styles and ages, though many folks seem to be in their prime. Ample security politely keeps things legal and maintains a safe environment. There are regular go-go dance competitions on Wednesdays and a consistent ladies’ night on Thursdays with hourly bartender performances. Rich’s occasionally offers “military” nights and “what-the-fuck” nights, which include live musical performances.
