    Awesome sound, ornate ceiling. Not a bad seat in the house

  • Allison K.

    I love the staggered levels on the floor. Makes it so much easier to see the stage.

    Allison Kasic · January 2
  • Andrea S.

    Even the very back balcony seats give you a decent view of the stage

    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.

    Brian Strauss · April 21, 2015
  • Armelle G.

    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

    Armelle Goreux · April 11, 2015
  • Joseph R.

    Best ghetto opera house featuring awesome indie bands!

    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.

    squeasel · October 8, 2014
  • Stephen V.

    Great venue for show like legendary music masters #KingCrimson now. What a great BDay eve!

    Stephen Vale · October 5, 2014
  • Roy S.

    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.

    Roy Scopazzi · September 12, 2014
  • Christopher P.

    The marquee, staff and shows are the best! I am biased though

    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.

    Make sure you grab a $16 beer. That shit is tight!

    Took advantage of the special seating upgrade.

    Benjamin Nowain · April 4, 2013
  • Baxter a.

    Definitely pre-game... $15 for a beer?! They aren't even sold in gold coated glasses...

  • Aaron D.

    If you're sitting in the balcony, you'll probably be high by the end of the show with all of that pot smoke wafting upwards.

    Olivia is the best, her performance and personality are so charming

    Box office opens an hour and a half before doors open. If you're looking for tickets or need to pick them up, get there early.

    There is not a bad seat at this venue. Even if you are in the last row of the balcony, you will have an amazing time.

    great venue for a rock show, a block from BART. balcony is cool but get GA tix so you're right on the floor! Read more

    I had a bite of my GFs panini sandwich she bought at Warfield and it ripped the inside of my mouth like a razor blade. Went to the first aid booth bleeding profusely and the geniuses there gave me gum

  • ChaunceyCC

    Without going into a total "bash" session, I'll be nice and put it like this...Some of the staff at this place is a little TOO serious. That is all.

    ChaunceyCC · June 14, 2011
  • Gabriel S.

    Best venue in the city -- thus far. Though I'll probably never sit in the nosebleeds again. Pit, or nothing at all. Read more

    $18 for a cocktail? Come on people! Also, why must the staff in General Admission be so rude? Would only come here if a band I reaaaally want to see is playing.

    Caroline · April 21, 2011

    head to The Showdown down the street beforehand to pre-funk

    PS - if you're underage, don't try to get drinks. You will be 86'ed. Saw it happen.

    Wait staff will take orders from the balcony. Handy, but pricey.

    Christine Ward · February 4, 2011

    The bartender and floor manager didn't even know what Foursquare was! Not able to get that free drink special.
