    Beautiful Theater

    Jory Andre · July 26
  • Brodie O.

    Free apples, free posters, awesome shows. Hard to find a bad view. Check out the posters upstairs and stop by the bar while you're up there!

    Brodie Olmstead · July 24
  • Brendan C.

    Best music venue in SF! Be sure to check out the poster collection upstairs.

    Brendan Curran · July 18
  • Brian S.

    The best venue in San Francisco? Also don't forget to grab an apple -- they are always free and usually stupendous. Don't know where they get them.

  • erinsauce

    If you want your souvenir poster, you'll have to wait until the very end of the show. It's worth it, as they're often beautifully designed.

  • Ray H.

    Historic music venue. All shows are good because it's the FILLMORE! Catch a drink in the Poster room upstairs.

    Ray Hartjen · March 16
  • Ellen M.

    Nice venue. Really good poster room.

    Ellen McGrody · February 18
  • Sam H.

    Bad bathroom for pooping. Make sure to do your business before you leave for the show.

    I love the Willie Nelson painting/sculpture over the fireplace, complete with a string of red xmas lights instead of fire!

    Take your time, breathe it in. Cooler people than you have spent time here. Your ego is worthless.

    Matt Cline · December 14, 2014
  • Scottie M.

    Get as close to the stage as possible or you'll have some trouble seeing the band

    Scottie Milagro · November 17, 2014
  • gail.

    The poster room has a great vantage point & is a fun place to hang out during opening bands that you're not that into.

    gail. · November 12, 2014
  • Thaisa F.

    Free apples and poster after the show \o/

    Thaisa Fernandes · November 2, 2014
  • Bommy C.

    Stay for the music and leave with a free poster.

    Bommy Cha · October 27, 2014
  • Ian W.

    Most legendary music venue in SF. Great sound, not overly crowded even when sold out. Go early and check out the posters from all of the shows over the years in the bar room upstairs.

    Ian Walter · October 14, 2014
  • Andrew W.

    Check the poster room for some historic names.

    Andrew Webster · October 12, 2014
  • squeasel

    I love the chandeliers, the history, even the sticky floors help add atmosphere. Fun place to see shows.

    At the Fillmore to see Lake Street Dive, who were on stage this past weekend at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass!!!

    Michelle Long · October 8, 2014
  • Aneilia M.

    Now there are tables around the floor?! Get there early and enjoy a pre-show cocktail

    Aneilia McDermott · October 7, 2014
  • John D.

    Awesome old school venue. Beers are way too expensive though.

    John Doherty · October 6, 2014
  • Lisa L.

    Cool indie music!

    Lisa Liu · September 28, 2014
  • Justin S.

    An easier path to the front? Head to the right on the opposite side from the bar.

    Justin Sullivan · September 20, 2014
  • Roy S.

    One of the greatest venues in San Francisco. A must if you're visiting. See the giant poster room, grab a free apple, and grab a poster on the way out if the show sells out. Always a treat.

    Roy Scopazzi · September 12, 2014
  • Charles M.

    Don't bring your pocket knife or reusable water bottle. They won't let you in with the knife and your water bottle has to wait out front. #Lame

    Charles Magnuson · August 18, 2014
  • Brendan C.

    The apples are delicious! Also love their tradition of handing out posters after the show.

    Brendan Curran · August 7, 2014
  • Nnenniqua

    One of my favorite music venues! Access to huge, delicious, red apples is a definite plus 😋🍎

    Nnenniqua · August 7, 2014

    The Grateful Dead. James Brown. Jefferson Airplane. Prince. The Cure. The Smashing Pumpkins. Radiohead. They have all graced this stage along with hundreds of other performers great and unknown. Read more

    Amazing space and fun atmosphere. Easy to get to the front of the stage!

    Beers are $9, while 12 packs of PBR at any store are $12. Ridiculous

    Awesome AC system!

    Try to score a poster on the way out w/ some of the best art in music ;^}

    Mj Lang · February 21, 2013
  • Bill W.

    The jerk roaming around the entrance near the box office will do everything possible to antagonize and ruin your night before you even get inside. Total disgrace to such a historic music venue.

    Bill Woodworth · February 17, 2013

    Stars with California Wives, and Diamond RIngs

    ladies: bring an extra hair tie - if your show's sold out, you can use it to get that free poster home safe! fellas: i dunno... make sure you grab an apple or something.

    Jamie · October 21, 2012
  • Mike C.

    Free apples + free poster = best venue in SF.

    Mike Campton · October 20, 2012

    Shop at Safeway and leave obvious Safeway bags in your car so it doesn't get towed.

    This place is the stuff of rock legend in SF. Take the time to enjoy the hundreds of concert lithographs on the wall.

    Mitch Lopez · August 6, 2012
  • Travel + Leisure

    Don’t leave without checking out the upstairs Poster Room—with psychedelic vintage poster art—and without grabbing a free apple.
