    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.

    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.

    Saw Owl City here....awesome! The venue is small and intimate, so reserving a table in the balcony means that you can sit down and watch your performance but still see and hear everything well.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    Be aware of the columns when you pick a spot on the floor. They can block your view of the stage if you're not careful.

    Small venue that is really centrally located, easy to bike to and near a lot of good restaurants, grungy, but good acoustics.

    Good small SF venue, competent staff. Seeing Gogol Bordello here years ago is probably still my favorite show ever.

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

    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.
