Lots of great artists perform here. We went to see the Portuguese fado singer, Ana Moura and her fabulous band. The view and acoustics were grand, even from the $35 seats. You can't go wrong here.

This is one of the best performance spaces in San Francisco. It's fairly large, yet feels intimate. Great place to see a concert. Cool hip location. And you can bring a beverage into the theater!

This concert venue has fantastic acoustics and there are no bad seats which means that wherever you sit you can see the stage and the performers. Seats are mainly sloped so you have great sight lines and because the space is not cavernous you're never...More

Perfect venue for world-class jazz performances. The line up is always first class. The building has a modern design, great acoustics and intimate feel.

Saw Pink Martini here and had a great time. Venue was nice and clean, everyone was friendly. Music sounded great. Got to be in standing room and was literally front and center to be able to see those performing.

shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to

a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
community park at its center and dozens of trendy
businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish
respite.
