Good news for nightlife fans. Oasis, the popular SoMa nightclub, announced plans to re-open its rooftop bar on Friday, August 14, with proper social distancing rules in effect.

Said owner D'Arcy Drollinger in the bar's newsletter, "We're opening our roof top for safe, social distant cocktails and food beginning Friday August 14! We miss our community and want to invite you all back 'home' to your Oasis."

New operating hours are Fridays 4pm - 9pm, Saturdays 4pm - 9pm and Sundays 2pm - 7pm at 298 11th St.

Seating will be first-come first-served. There will also be two drag performances, at 5:30pm and at 7pm.

In a previous article, 'Queer SoMa challenged by COVID,' Assistant News Editor John Ferrannini wrote, "The shutdown orders and other restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic are presenting new challenges to a neighborhood that was already experiencing a decline in the number of queer spaces."

Will Oasis provide a renewed spark of fun in queer nightlife? We shall see. The nightclub continues its online shows and archived wild funny musicals at Oasis TV.
