The first place in SF your favorite band played.
Chosen by Rolling Stone magazine (RS 813) as "the best place to hear live music in San Francisco"-- and voted "Best Rock Club" by SF Bay Guardian's readers for countless years, including 2008-2012-- the Bottom of the Hill presents some of the finest original artists, nearly seven nights a week.
Featuring emerging acts from around the globe as well as our own backyard, Bottom of the Hill's music spans the spectrum from alternative, rock-a-billy, punk, and hard rock, to folk, funk and pop.
Some of the amazing acts that cut their teeth here:
- Marilyn Manson ('94)
- The White Stripes
- Korn and the Deftones (double bill in '95)
- Kid Rock
- The Strokes
- Beastie Boys (touring as hardcore band Quasar in '96)
- Alanis Morissette
We're equipped with a full bar, a kitchen that stays open late and a patio area where guests can escape the crowd. The club is also available for private parties, showcases and other events.
