    One of SF's best places to see National acts but still have the classic feel of a lounge. They have great food too! TW ♥'s Cafe Du Nord! Read more

    The go to place for local bands release parties. While the acts are often small, they make up for it in spirit.

    Come before 11pm to sample the short, but tasty menu – munch on the Wild Mushroom Strudel or Grilled Swordfish before the dancing starts. For more, follow us on 4sq or at Read more

    This place used to be a speakeasy in the old days. Known to have very stiff and tasty cocktails (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    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.

    I felt relieved the first time I walked into this place for an AA Bondy show. It is the first small venue we discovered in SF, and a very intimate space for live music. Read more

    For the vertically challenged, try standing on the stairs to the right of the stage (stage left)

  • Stewart P.

    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.

  • Bryant M.

    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.

  • Rob R.

    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.

    One of the few places in San Francisco that feels like a "proper" music listening club.

    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.
