Penthouse, noted purveyor of labial entertainment, will bring "four-star dining" to San Francisco in early 2012 via the city's very own Penthouse Club & Steakhouse. While the exact space is not yet know, we're going to assume it's somewhere in North Beach (near the Hustler Club) or SOMA (what's up with Temple these days, anyway?). Huge Penthouse fans over at Grub Street have more: "They say the space is 15,000 square feet, and the new, clearly enormous club will feature gourmet dining, deluxe bottle service, state of the art light and sound systems, as well as — yep — topless dancers and appearances by Penthouse Pets. If you're the kind of gentlemen who thinks this sounds intriguing, you can sign up here for updates."

And, according to the press release, the lighting will be fabulous. Work. Ahem: "Acclaimed lighting and interior designer David Chesal is overseeing the extensive multi-million dollar construction project. The award-winning designer has over 30 years of experience creating some of the world’s most captivating and elegant adult nightclubs and has been featured on Spike TV’s popular Bar Rescue design renovation show."

We'll have further updates the moment we see the beauty and touch the magic for ourselves.
