Refinery29 San Francisco Launch Party At Sloane

Last week, San Francisco welcomed Refinery29 with open arms and numerous glasses of champagne (and our signature R29 cocktail) at our insane and truly unforgettable launch party at Sloane. San Francisco’s party people came out dressed to impress and ready for loads of fun, which was provided in plenty courtesy of DJ Sonny Phono, a prop-filled photo-booth, on-the-spot custom poetry scribe Lynn Gentry, and much, much more. Flip through our gallery to peep our favorite party pics and to experience it all over again. Plus, check out our Facebook page for even more gorgeous snaps of this city's coolest locals.
