This is just an amazing place. I love that they have so much space in here. This is really a great place for dancing. I like that they have amazing choices when it comes to music as well.

This is just a wonderful place for fun. I took my friends in here last week and we had a great time. The drinks just kept on flowing and the music was so appealing.

I came here a few weekends ago and had a great time. There was a good, mixed crowd, hip music, and a great bar. The service was fast too. I fell in love with one of the bartenders. He made my friends and I Hello Kitty shots throughout the night which were delish! They are made with vodka and Ty Ku liqueur. Yum!

Pros: Parking is easy

Cons: Cover charge of boys :(

My brothers and I went to the Boom Boom Room last week. It's a comfortable place with good energy and an interesting atmosphere. The price isn't expensive considering the acts that perform there are tried and true or just the very best of today. Intimate and soulful. Bring lots of friends with you, you're guaranteed to have a ball.

This place has a really cool vibe. Its a very good blues bar. Its a little dark inside but thats one of the things that make it nice. Its not that big so get there early if the show is going to sell out!

I used to live down the street and became a regular here. I don't even remember what the cover is because the doorman got to know me and I could just walk in. After work, I would usually walk down here after dinner in Japantown, grab something at the bar, and chill out against the wall--sometimes I'd parouse the dance floor, but usually I would just sit back and chill out to the smooth Jazz sounds. Every once in a while, someone really different would arrive on stage and make me take notice. Latex Funk Machine, if they're still around, was one of my favorites. Almost a mix between funk and soul, they bring up undertones of Red Hot Chili Peppers, but with their own unique voice. I'd go back just to hear them again! The editorial review of BBR is accurate in that it is gritty, and homeless people have been known to get in on Monday nights when there is no cover. Sometimes they'd strike up interesting conversation or ask for a couple bucks to get a drink, but mostly they'd just sit at the back and try to keep warm. This place is definitely warm.

Cons: limited parking, sketchy area late at night

I loved the spot and the music, but the service was absolutely horrible. I tried to buy tickets on the web as it states for $12, but it wouldn't go through. So, ended up paying $15 at the door. I ordered grey goose and vodka, but the bartender didn't hear me. So I ended up with some gasoline tasting vodka, & when I asked her to remake it saying I totally didn't mind paying the difference, she accused me of lying saying I didn't order grey goose. Of course the music was loud, & I'm sure she probably didn't hear me, but she would not admit or even make any gesture to rectify the situation. Would never go back again after that bad experience.

The place is nice with a long bar, several sitting tables, and a nice (but sticky) dance floor. The evenning we went there there was an excellent live music. The problem was the drinks. Our drinks were the worst I remember getting in the city with almost no alcohol. Our friend ordered a bottled beer that tasted flat (a second beer tasted OK). The drinks were also relatively expensive (8.5$ for a cocktail).

The Boom Boom Room has done so much for New Orleans musicians - showcasing them, bringing various people together and putting together unique ensembles. I applaud the effort HIGHLY and appreciate how we are so lucky to see acts so up close. I love dancing hard to real funk and boogaloo and this place is a treasure. The staff is also to be recognized for being so cool too... If you want to just chat and hang out - ignoring the magic happening on stage....go to a bar that isn't a live music house...this is a church of live music and ya gotta BRING IT to this place.... Shake it man - its the place for it.

Pros: Staff, Music choices, reasonable

Cons: gets sweaty

I only live a couple block away. It's a cool bar with a few good happy hour deals. The atmosphere is what you think a "bar" should be (if only you could smoke inside). Be warned though, if you're just looking for a cool place to hang out and drink - this may or may not be for you. Since there is a band most every night, you will have to pay a cover to be there (regardless of how long you've already been there).

The Boom Boom Room is a great place to go see a local band play. It's a small venue so I'm sure it can get packed when a national act comes to town. The staff is always nice and they have about a dozen beers on tap. And there's a parking lot right across the street if you can't find a spot on the street. It's an enjoyable bar to spend an evening.

This is a special place in San Francisco, where pretentiousness gives way to soulful music, where people can dance to the blues and just enjoy themselves.
