Slim's was a nightclub and music venue in San Francisco, California, which was opened by Boz Scaggs in 1988. Scaggs and his partners took over a vacant restaurant which was called the Warehouse and threw a party there on December 31, 1987, to celebrate before closing it to remodel, and the new venue opened on September 16, 1988. The club closed permanently on March 18, 2020.Use our San Francisco trip itinerary builder website to add Slim's and other attractions to your San Francisco vacation plans.
I went there for the first time for the Myles Kennedy gig. The ticket pricing at $28 or so was very affordable. The venue was intimate and had good sound effects. Beer costed about $9. There was food.... more »
Big acts have played here and we saw Joe Purdy backed by Lia Rose. Great night of folk in a small club. Food truck park just down the road too....Joe was great and Lia sang amazingly more »
Great sound, I bought dinner with the show and it was pretty good food. The only criticism I have is the balcony where dinner guests are, the sound is so much better on the floor. Adding a couple of smaller speakers on time delay near the balcony would make it fantastic.
Always a great place to catch a good act. The all-floor setup really makes for a great music experience regardless of where you are. The only spot that is really a hazard is nearest the front door as there are stairs which you can fall from if it's standing room only and you have no means to brace yourself.
