  • I play blues, so I know what I was hearing, and it was damned good (almost as good as Chicago). Cheap beer, crowded & narrow, but worth it.  more »

  • One of the oldest bars in SF. Best live music venue in city. Old school cool. If you haven't been, make it a point to stop in. Located in great spot in North Beach (Little Italy).
  • Loved it! The live blues and history of the bar makes this place a must if you are visiting. It's in an area you want to be in for nightlife activities, but make sure you have cash- they do not take cards here. I feel like it's a spot the locals who dig good music go. Very authentic and fun!
