The “aqua-exotic escape” of Qi Ultra-Lounge is finally here! Yes, the long-awaited replacement for Annie’s Social Club (917 Folsom Street) has opened, and luckily LiveSoMa braved the “sensuality laced with traces of ancient spirituality” so we don’t have to. We kid, but seriously folks, there are origami cranes made of gold, white leather banquettes, phat beats, and on the cocktail menu there is something called a Methane cocktail (Don Julio tequila, peach purée, serrano chiles, and black salt). Also, the Campfire Snack: vodka, scotch, Godiva liqueur, house-made vanilla syrup, and a marshmallow-graham cracker rim. And don’t forget the phat beats. [LiveSoMa, Earlier]

Qi Ultra-Lounge - 917 Folsom Street at 5th - Open Tuesday and Wednesday, 6 p.m. to midnight; Thursday to Saturday, 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
