    Always love shows here — nearby bars are a must before doors.

    The floor is a lot more fun than the balcony.

    One on the best music venues around. Love the GA experience on the first floor. Great food and drink options near by.

    1 of my favorite venues. Food, parking, BART make it easy.Seating in the loge & mezzanine preferred. Balcony leg room is cramped. Art deco!!

    They get a lot of great bands but the acoustics and mixing are really, really disappointing. I always leave feeling a little bummed out.

    Don't forget to visit RockMed if you need anything (earplugs, bandaids, medical attention).

    It's great when venues have some seats available for those of us that are too lazy to stand for a show.

    Beautiful venue. However, I think it gets way too crowded.

    When it's hot in the Fox, stand over one of the many vents in the floor to cool your junk.

    Beautifully restored venue with all the amenities you would expect. Don't let the location worry you, the neighbor felt safe and was free of the expected "urban decay."

    One of the best venues I've ever been to. If you're short, there are two areas with steps on the main floor to try to grab a spot with a good view. Do it during the openers!

    It's like a nicer version of The Enmore, for any Sydney-siders that get that reference.

    Setup is awesome. No matter what floor ticket you have, you can see the stage and the artist. Cool! IF you need to get around use UBER app. If you use the code: UBERNEF you get $20 on your first ride!
