We recently went to Slim's to see Rodney Crowell, one of country and western music's royalty. The show was epic! But what about Slim's itself? I've been here a number of times to see hip hop and metal bands and it was also great. It is a small, but not "tight" venue with good acoustics throughout that enables you to... More

Overcooked Tri tip with raw broccoli and wilted... More

It is just a great, small venue, with good sound and a large, decently priced bar. Staff (as well as patrons) were very cool all around. Go there for a show! I will be back, as much as possible.

Located on 11th Street just a hop, skip and a jump (or a $10 cab rid) from the city center, Slim's is a small, intimate venue that features great sound. I was excited to see a Built to Spill" show coincided... More

i have been to slim's many times. they book great bands that come play there, they have an upper area for eating while you watch the bands perform. it gives off a very welcoming vibe and i'd recommend it to anyone that visits san francisco.
