  • Chris W.

    Intimate venue with decent sound quality. Easy to find free street parking nearby.

  • Ray H.

    Great place for live music. Instead of sitting on your couch, drop by for a visit. Cover is cheap, bar is reasonable and acts appear from all over.

    Ray Hartjen · November 28, 2014
  • Roy S.

    Great small place where some of the best bands played before they got big. Great food, nice outdoor space in back, easy parking, and friendly staff.

    Roy Scopazzi · September 12, 2014
  • Sharon

    Tiny venue, cash bar, very intimate. The back patio is a nice touch. Stage is a little too high for my liking, but it's a dive venue that excels at being just that.

  • SFist

    It's the place where your friend's band always plays and even though you go to all of their shows, he'll be pissed if you miss even one, so you totally know the routine by now. Read more

    If you haven't experienced a KC Turner Presents Open Mic you haven't experienced the SF music scene .. Just sayin

    Great drinks!

    Jeremy Collins · March 24, 2014
  • Edison C.

    The food grill is pretty sweet if you need a snack to soak up the beer you'll drink during a show.

    Beer is not cheap!!!

    Tofu tacos are to die for! Actual best in the city (surprising for a venue like this, yes, but nonetheless true!)

    Secret rooftop hot tub is cool, but it seemed kind of dirty. :-/

    Austin Smith · February 6, 2013

    Cash only bar.

    A trip to Bottom of the Hill is a must, but be wary of the location. Cars frequently get broken into outside the club, so don’t leave anything valuable in plain sight. Read more

    Be sure to check out Brooklyn punk band Mr. Dream here on March 3, 2012. You wont regret it.

    Mosh pits are gay.

    Jana Heflin · January 27, 2012
  • Donald W.

    A great place like this is something you wouldn't find in Potrero hill normally. Can easily be over looked (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Donald Wilson · January 26, 2012
  • Andy S.

    They serve food! I always get the Polish dog. Bonus points for them serving Hummus.

    Andy Smyth · January 22, 2012

    Very Fun Venue!

  • Ben R.

    Awesome venue, even if it feels like a journey to get there. Read more

    Ben Russo · August 29, 2011
  • Jared Z.

    This place is a little out of the way, and it sucks trying to catch a cab after the show (ride your bike!), but you're unlikely to get any closer to your favorite band.

    Jared Zimmerman · August 23, 2011
  • Daniel S.

    See up and comers in this fun little club. Bonus points for the ample amount of free parking in the nearby area.

    Daniel Salinas · August 15, 2011
  • Thrillcall

    Don't miss the openers. Bottom of the Hill is legendary for launching music careers! Seriously, their list of past shows is a who's-who in music today:

    Parking's a breeze. Taxis are hard to come by. Drive if you can.

    The place to see great bands for cheap in a small space.

    HowAboutWe · April 18, 2011
  • Jennifer Holly W.

    Be careful. No ins OR outs here. I got in okay, but I'm fearful of how or if I'll get out.

    Jennifer Holly Wood · March 27, 2011
  • Jamie

    see your faves before they blow up & pack the big, snooty venues, hang out back, check out the wall of calendars past + all the old noise pop posters, order a whiskey & tip those beautiful bartenders!

    Jamie · February 5, 2011
  • Angela C.

    Hospitality is awesome here!! All the food is yummy here!!

    Angela Carn · December 12, 2010
