Great place to party with friends. It does get a little wild in the place but they have plenty of restrooms upstairs and down. They serve drinks but at a cost. I bought a 16 ounce water bottle for $4 buck. The water fountain tastes strange I would not recommend drinking from the tap.
I frequent Bill Graham exclusively for raves and I love this place. There's always amazing artists (and sometimes even multi-artist shows) coming through here and the venue is HUGE. It can get pretty warm, but for the amount of people packed inside this space they do a good job of keeping it cool. Anyway, I've seen some incredible shows here. I've included a few pictures of the stage
