Not sure how to compare but its no Chicago blues club that for sure.

Is OK for a few beers but I wouldn't go just to hear blues. Set up is terrible. Not a place to take a dump either. see photo 3. had to post for the pure humor of it.

I love the Saloon. I've been traveling to San Francisco on business for over a year, and I always make it a point to experience a city's local flavor, searching out restaurants, clubs, working out, etc. from a "local perspective." My

The Saloon is the oldest saloon in SF that said it isn't a fancy fern bar, but it delivers the best, blues and inexpensive drinks. I have gone there for years, the bartenders are part of the atmosphere. They are all fun JoAnn, Huck,

Pros: Great Blues, Good Booze, Small

Cons: Smalll

this place is an SF institution. If you love the blues, down and dirty style with some grit and a lot of history, look no further. It's hard to park in North Beach, though. This place is on the other end of the spectrum from Biscuits

I believe Im correct in saying that The Saloon is the oldest bar in San Francisco... and thats OLD. Well guess what? Its still an awesome bar. It truly is a walk into the past, and some of the regulars sitting slouched in their stools perfect the picture. They occasionally host some of the biggest names in blues too. Awesome.

We've been to Saloon several times, the music is good, but it's just a type of place where you go in, hear a piece or 2 and go somewhere else where you can relax and have a nice cocktail. This place only serves very basic drinks and has

I visit the Saloon every time I'm in the city. It smells like old beer, but the people are great and the music is rockin'. Watch out for the steps in the men's room.

This is my favorite spot when I want to hear live blues and have a nice, stiff Jack & Coke. Draws a wide crowd from toothless down and out to cute chicks that want to dance. No matter who, always a very friendly crowd.
