This place is okay. But here's an entertaining story - I was coming here with a friend and we hopped in a cab and asked to go to the Bottom of the Hill. The cab driver took us to the bottom of a hill. Yeah.

When it comes to music venues, there is never a shortage of complainers about the place. It's too loud, the drinks are too expensive, etc. Bottom line is, BOTH is my favorite of music venues in the city. Great, loud, rock and roll, reasonable priced drinks, pool, patio, friendly staff.

Very low key place imo and lacking poseurs in a city that's practically choking on them....

If you are a mainstream lifer and want to sneak away from your everyday life and pose around with some other posers? this is the place for you.Occasionally they will bring in some good national touring acts through but for the most part the people that hang out there are wannabes of the SF music scene.Bar staff is cool but the people who go there really are sickening.Dont take it from me.Go check it out yourself.But dont say i didnt tell you so.

Pros: great out of the way spot,lots of parking

Cons: way to many posers

Saw SF's own Two Gallants. Great little venue. Reasonable drink prices and plenty of parking. Great place!

This is a great venue to see bands that range from indie to major. There's also a bar and pool table in there to it's great to hang out, lounge, and enjoy good music.

PROS: Good bands.
CONS: The cover charge is a little high.

I was in town for some hellish all-day business meeting, and I snuck out for an escape. Stumbled across this place, and at 6 PM they had 3 GREAT happy hour original bands! Great suds, prices ok for SF, a great non-snooty vibe. I am definitely coming back here when I am in town again.

This seems to be every ones favorite club in San Francisco and I have to admit, I don't really like it very much. The door price is always expensive, the bar isn't that great, the atmosphere is okay, but there's no place to sit and talk if you don't feel like listening to the show. They book some good underground bands sometimes, but the Hemlock Tavern is better.

There's plenty of free parking & the place is really cool. It's all about funkiness & history & that's really great. There's a back patio area for smoking & getting some fresh air & that's fun. They always have great bands. Because of these things I recommend the place, but...
The bad part: The sound is never quite right, though and it's always way TOO LOUD! It's not just me, either, there's always a huge crowd of people on the side of the stage trying to avoid the blast of the speakers. If you don't have earplugs, it's so loud you can hardly tell what's going on. If you do have earplugs, well, earplugs are just no fun, are they? The bar is overpriced & the bartender didn't even know how to make one of my very simple & common drinks. Also, there's a serious shortage of chairs/stools inside.

I'm going tonite once again up to that great attic named the bottom of the hill to hear, see and smell my well loved non local band (they come as far as Sacramento), and then i 'll go to the patio smoke my Marlboro when the second band starts.
Oh , I'm going now...

Pros: c'est bien, c'est tout rouge, devilish atmosphere

Funky, down-home spot to catch local bands. Best thing--there's an outdoor patio where you can hang out and rest your ears if the band's too loud. Not a place for fancy drinks--just grab a pint and rock out. Don't miss the Sunday afternoon all-you-can-eat bbq.
