Slim’s is whatever you want it to be. It’s a punk room. A blues lounge. A hip-hop club. Since its opening, Slim’s has proudly served as a pillar of live music for concert-goers of all ages in San Francisco. We’ve hosted some of the world’s greatest acts on their way to world-fame, like Radiohead, Green Day, and The Black Keys, and continues to welcome rising newcomers to the stage every week. Slim’s has an open floor plan with a bar that wraps around the room – No fancy decor, no bottle service, no frills. Just good drinks, good food, and great music.



One of San Francisco’s original rock clubs, Slim’s in SOMA provides an authentic San Francisco venue for your company party, happy hour, karaoke party, or battle of the bands.

Company Parties
Hosting a company party at Slim’s is a great way to say thank you to your employees, and bring everyone together outside the workplace in a fun, casual setting.

Happy Hours
Want to get the team together without the commitment of a big party? You can rent Slim’s for just a few hours for an after-work exclusive happy hour event. Get your playlist ready, and bring the team down for a low-key, happy hour in a cool, legendary San Francisco rock venue.

Battle of the Bands
Ever wanted to perform on the same stage that once hosted Joan Jett, Tool and Beck? Tell your employees to blow the dust off their old Fenders and get ready to feel like a rock star for a day. Nothing brings people together like playing in a band, and a workplace Battle of the Bands is a great way to build camaraderie and show appreciation to your employees.

  • Is Slim’s an all ages venue?

    Yes – all Ages 6 and up

  • ADA Accessible?

    Slim’s prides itself on ensuring everyone gets to see the show. Please call the box office a day or two before the show and let us know you need ADA accommodation, and we’ll be happy to help.

  • Is parking available?

    There is street parking (metered until 6pm) on many of the blocks surrounding the club. Alternatively, after 8:30pm Slim’s guests may also use the Costco parking lot located on 11th St. between Bryant St. and Harrison St. The fee is a $10.00 flat rate and it is open until 2:30am.

  • What's your camera policy?

    Since this varies from artist to artist, we ask no professional cameras (i.e. anything with a detachable lens) without an approved photo pass. Phones and small cameras are fine unless otherwise requested by an artist.

  • Is there a bag policy?

    No need to ditch the bag! Just know all bags are subject to search upon entry.

  • Is Slim’s near public transport?

    The BART station closest to Slim’s is Civic Center, approximately a 15 minute walk – shows beginning at 8pm typically end before final BART trains depart. Slim’s also is near stops for MUNI lines #9, #12, #27, and #49.
