    Dinner ticket is worth it for the seats, food is mediocre at best. Well liquor tastes like Windex, go for the good stuff.

    Great, intimate venue with a great bar. There are a few non-dinner ticket tables in the back, but you'll need to come early to snag one.

    Staff are very kind and don't chop your smoke in half as you walk by to get in line. I really have not found the sweet spot in the room for each show. Brick. Clean. More Subs! Kids can be rude. Dis u.

    Love the fact that Slim's has a dinner/seating area by the bar. Nothing like Cheddar & Bacon potato skins or a big plate of nachos while you listen to the bands play!

    Holy shit this place was filled with obnoxious drunk kids. I support all-ages shows and used to go to them when I was younger so I know it can be better than this. Yikes.

    This is one of our favorite venues in SF. Just small enough to feel intimate, but always a buzzing crowd. And FYI, there are bathrooms downstairs!

    Not a bad seat in the house. In my experience, handing over a great tip at the beginning of the evening before things get too crowded is SUPER effective at getting great service later in the night.
