    Cafe Du Nord has transitioned back to a full time music venue. It is no longer a full time cocktail bar. Most tips here no longer apply.

    Super French and Parisian with good ambiance for chit chatting. Smells like delicious fried chicken.

    Solid burger and cocktails. The real magic starts after midnight: half off oysters and champagne.

    Good burger. Nice atmosphere. Good live jazz. Not the rock n roll hotspot it once was, but oh well.

    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.

    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.

    Cafe Du Nord is near the Castro district and is therefore very gay friendly.
