    Friday: Stone Foxes -- Think drinking beer on the porch with your best buddies blues, not chasing devil-hearted women ($12, 10 p.m). Read more

  • Band of the Day A.

    Top sf venue for emerging bands. Patio area is nice to hang out around between sets!

  • Bloomingdale's

    Out-of-the-way, but easy to find – just look for the off-kilter neon sign attached to the blue wood-framed house. Inside is crammed with fans feasting on the up-and-coming bands, 7 nights a week.

    Bloomingdale's · August 18, 2010
  • Devan L.

    Hang out in the patio behind the stage between sets.

    Devan Lane · May 28, 2010
  • Daniel S.

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

    Bands - don't smoke weed in the dressing room.

  • Thriving Ivory

    Cuz Ramona & co. rock. (Note: she's the longtime owner/booker there and has been great to us. This is where we showcased for Wind-up)

    The in-house café, The Kitchen, is open until midnight and serves some of the best, most reasonably priced bar fare in the city for less than $5.

    GourmetLive · October 17, 2010
  • Alex H.

    This is the bar where the hottest guys in the city go. Yow Yow!

    Alex Hisaka · February 27, 2010
  • Kari C.

    The best place to see shows in the city.

    Kari Cansler · February 1, 2010
  • 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!

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

  • 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
  • Anne-Michelle F.

    Cash only, did you hear?

    Anne-Michelle Friedman · May 7, 2011
  • daniel s.

    Come early the first band might surprise you!

    daniel stokes · May 31, 2010
  • Jill O.

    This venue is filled with ecclectic bands - live, raw, loud and as if you are in someone's garage. Read more

    Jill Oana · April 19, 2010
  • 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

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

  • HowAboutWe

    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

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

    Angela Carn · December 12, 2010

    See three bands you've never seen before and love every one of them. Tell 'em Red Hot said to order the Hot Rod.

  • Chris W.

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

    Chris Wren · December 22, 2014
  • 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.

    Sharon · August 6, 2014
  • Lori K.

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

    Lori Kober · May 7, 2014

    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.

    Edison Cruz · March 1, 2014

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

  • Party Earth

    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
