  • The Slim's is a home of the old shows in Sanfra, not as beautiful as the Warfield, but the space is cool for you to see the show from anywhere and have a privileged view of the stage. If you want to get face to face with the band, just get close and stay in the Muvuca, too. If the band is good and you enjoy the sound, there is more to go there and make out!

  • 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.
  • Just another lame sf venue that oversells tickets. Great sound quality and visuals, but when you can’t sway without getting intimate with strangers, it ruins the artists. Seriously, if awesome venues like Regency and Independent can sell out shows and give their patrons room to dance, so can you. Just charge more for tickets. I would pay more to not have to feel everyone breath on my neck. You’re not a real music venue if you don’t give patrons room to dance. Do better.
