    The upstairs restrooms are past the bar to the right and usually have a shorter line.

    great, small venue!

    If you can get a seat downstairs, do that. It's hard to see from the balcony unless you're in the front row. Beautiful historic building!

  • Vlad S.

    Sketchy location but i love the inside. It also has good acoustics

    Vlad Saveluc · September 21, 2015
  • Brodie O.

    Beautiful, intimate venue. Easily one of the best venues in SF.

    Brodie Olmstead · July 24, 2015

    Very cozy venue

    Horia Dragomir · July 6, 2015
  • Roy S.

    One of my favorite concert venues in the city. Definitely go here if you haven't, and even if you have!

    Roy Scopazzi · July 4, 2015
  • Amy B.

    Super friendly, helpful employees. Great intimate place to see great bands cheaply.

  • Eric L.

    Don't buy a ticket that includes a meal. They forget about shit

  • erinsauce

    After the show, head to Whiskey Thieves or Edinburgh Castle to keep the party going.

    erinsauce · June 3, 2015
  • Ian W.

    Another great SF venue with good sound. Don't tell people about the secret upstairs bar and bathroom.

    Ian Walter · May 10, 2015
  • Mariah M.

    great balcony view. the upstairs toilets are nicer than downstairs and theres usually no line.

    No love for designated drivers. Four dollars for a club soda. Thanks assholes.

    Matt Weldon · January 31, 2015
  • Chris W.

    Best sound quality in SF.

    Chris Wren · January 6, 2015
  • Matt C.

    One of the more beautiful music venues in SF. It can get very hot and stuffy on summer nights but during the fall it's perfect. Drinks are cheap and some of the house cocktails are really fun.

    Matt Cline · November 29, 2014
  • Gerard R.

    Utilize the upstairs seating, bars, or restrooms to avoid the crowd downstairs

    Gerard Reyes · November 17, 2014
  • squeasel

    Gorgeous small venue. I love the ceiling. Get there early, especially for partially seated shows, if you want to be able to see well.

    squeasel · October 7, 2014
  • Roy S.

    My favorite venue in San Francisco. Get early for balcony seats or just to get close to the stage. Great food as well, share a sundae, it's friggin' huge! Upstairs bathroom is more convenient btw.

    Roy Scopazzi · September 12, 2014
  • Maykel L.

    One of the best sounding venues in the city.

    It's a small venue, so don't be surprised when you walk in.

  • Mikl M.

    It was years after I had moved to SF and seen a few shows at GAMH that I realized I recognized it from a Robin Williams concert I'd seen on HBO. Beautiful still. One of my favorite venues in SF.

    Mikl M · November 21, 2011

  • Daniel S.

    A beautiful building with a great upstairs area. If the concert is sold out, you can often get a dinner ticket for a little bit extra.

    saw Fall Out Boy here in '08. such a cool venue

  • Leanne V.

    The view from the balcony is great, plus no one will step on your toes. Get there early to grab seats.

    Leanne Vanderbyl · July 15, 2011
  • Sebastian P.

    The ceiling resembles a woman's body

    Sebastian Pietsch · June 30, 2011
  • Derek G.

    When it says Limited Seating, it means limited opportunities to see the stage

    Derek Gurney · June 25, 2011
  • Roc Nation

    Beautifully and intricately crafted balconies, marble pillars, and a small stage. Catch a great-sounding unplugged show, or prepare for hearing loss on any night when the indie rock bands roll in.

    Roc Nation · June 8, 2011
  • RAY V.

    The guys working the door are great hosts! Helped me find my wallet after I accidentally trashed it. Even provided latex gloves!
