  • SF Weeklys Best Of 2011 Winner Editorial Pick Best Experimental Music Gathering. The multiday, multimedia On Land festival is a serious contender for Experimental Music Event of the Whole Left...
  • See The Parlotones here on 11/01/11!
  • One of SF's best places to see National acts but still have the classic feel of a lounge. They have great food too! TW 's Cafe Du Nord!
  • Play pool while listening to music
  • The burger is top notch
  • Good burger. Nice atmosphere. Good live jazz. Not the rock n roll hotspot it once was, but oh well.
  • Champagne and oysters after midnight.
  • Oh My My, Oh Hell Yeah! ... BIG THX to all the folks who came out to Cafe Du Nord this past weekend where we had our biggest turnout yet! We look forward to being back in SF again real soon!
  • Come before 11pm to sample the short, but tasty menu munch on the Wild Mushroom Strudel or Grilled Swordfish before the dancing starts. For more, follow us on 4sq or at
  • One of the best places to see bands, definitely intimate and usually not over crowded.
  • This place used to be a speakeasy in the old days. Known to have very stiff and tasty cocktails (3 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • Scrimshaw on tap. Get it.
  • Adorable, intimate venue for concerts. If you get a dinner reservation with your ticket, I'd recommend the catfish or calamari. The food is decent.
  • U have to check out the stuffbox booth while you're here
  • Layout is much better now. They moved the bathrooms and there's an elevator for the disabled and musician load in. Thank Gawd!!!!
  • The place has a nice vibe to it. It is also, unfortunately, fairly rectangular and boxy and so the acoustics aren't the greatest.
  • The petition filet is wonderful.
  • A great place for stiff drinks and live music.
  • Heres a link explaining the current situation
  • Cafe Du Nord has transitioned back to a full time music venue. It is no longer a full time cocktail bar. Most tips here no longer apply.
