    The last gasping remnants of SF arts culture are it’s historic music venues. Warfield is lovely. Loud and clear sound + spacious multi-tiered floor + steep mezzanine = good view from everywhere.

    Nothing. Terribly managed line and entry. Super crowded. Not worth it.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    $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.

    Drinks cost way too much, and they don't let you bring them back to your sear if you're up on the balcony. You def want to be floor/GA. But alas, so many damn good shows happen here.
