Built in 1906, and located below street level, Cafe Du Nord has a sordid history as a brothel, a speakeasy, and the meeting place of secret societies. It now houses one of San Francisco's favorite music venues!
Champagne and oysters after midnight.
Beautiful small venue to catch a show.
Great concert spot
Get the fried pickles to start if you order food.
For the vertically challenged, try standing on the stairs to the right of the stage (stage left)
One of the best places to see bands, definitely intimate and usually not over crowded.
Just be careful...could easily hold 200+ people...but for some reason they seat the room...leaving space for only about 75...leaving everyone that doesnt have a seat barely able to see the stage.
The venue is smaller and cozy with an incredible wrap-around balcony across the entire venue. Seeing a band at this location is always a treat! I would definitely see an act here over Slims, tenfold.
One of the best live music venues in the city. Super easy to get to and even some street parking if you're the DD.
Smooth jazz baby!!!
The go to place for local bands release parties. While the acts are often small, they make up for it in spirit.
See The Parlotones here on 11/01/11!
Scrimshaw on tap. Get it.
They serve the strongest whisky sours EVER.
Adorable, intimate venue for concerts. If you get a dinner reservation with your ticket, I'd recommend the catfish or calamari. The food is decent.
Feels like a church. Folding chairs.
Great little place. Sexy decor and awesome live music.
U have to check out the stuffbox booth while you're here
Where's the food?
Delicious meatball mini-burgers at #vatorsplash cafe de Nord
One of the few places in San Francisco that feels like a "proper" music listening club.
Play pool while listening to music
Cafe Du Nord is near the Castro district and is therefore very gay friendly.
Amazing live electronic music. No djs, smooth female vocals.. I wonder if they keep it on everyday...
Great coffee (Ritual), free wifi, power outlets... this the kind of place I can settle in for some "working from home" action.
See some musical acts.
They brew Ritual Coffee.
