    Architecturally beautiful inside, this nearly 100-year-old former vaudeville theater stands out among venues. Buy your GA tickets early, they sell it fast.

    A classic SF venue. Balcony upstairs for those that want to sit. Great GA area on the main floor -- very close to the stage.

    Drinks are expensive. They can only make the basic cocktails for $13. Careful when you go. You might end up getting balcony seating if you are going for an edm thing. Also, edm stuff ends around 11:30

    I've never been in the balcony, but I've always had great experiences on the floor. The venue is on the semi-sketchy part of Market St, so just be aware if you're walking alone.

    Beautiful venue, decent bartenders though overpriced drinks. Floor staff/security are kind of dicks - wouldn't let me sit down in back for even a minute when I'd just gotten injured down in front.

    My favorite large venue in San Fran. Park at the large parking lot nearby or take BART, don't try for street parking. Don't worry about where you're sitting, it's a great view from anywhere.

    The Good: Great views from the back and solid sound. The Ugly: Beers are $10 and they don't have free water to keep you hydrated, only $4 bottled.
