Tips

  • Check out a Tainted Love show here -- awesome 80's music
  • Founder Agostino Giuntoli left Tuscany, Italy in 1922 at the age of 19 and sailed to America. He spent five years working his way to San Francisco and found a job as janitor at the famed Palace Hotel.
  • See a show at Bimbo's and tip the waitress well
  • The definition of a swank, cavernous nightclub long before the Prohibition craze. Diverse, musical events galore. The back of the room is way too loud even if a plane landed you can't hear anything.
  • SF Weeklys Best Of 2011 Winner Editorial Pick BEST ROCK N ROLL BATHROOMAn Art Deco marvel in North Beach since 1931, Bimbo's doesn't leave its class at the bar with the sharply dressed staff
  • Sneak a flask in. $6 for a High Life? Yea right...
  • Nice venue for a small show!
  • Don't take photos or video record inside. They are nazis and will save you the embarrassment.
  • Ticket holders to the left, all others (guest list, will call, ticket buyers) to the right.
  • During special events the fishtank behind the bar has a 4 inch human in it. Only special events because 4 inch humans that beach underwater have an expensive hourly rate!
  • The margherita pizza is pretty darn good for $9. Skip the pasta.
  • If going to a Tainted Love weekend show, buy tickets at least 1.5 weeks in advance. They always sells out, and you want to get tickets mailed to avoid waiting in the long will call line.
  • get blasted at kennedy's awesome 2 for 1 happy hour before the show!
  • Go to Bimbo's 365 for an intimate music scene & feel like you are transported back to the 30's
  • Nice venue, good atmosphere
  • Late 20s retro music venue, awesome vibe.
  • Excellent place to see a show, very cool atmosphere. Hard to park around here though.
  • What a great, old school Italian night club. Love it!!!
  • Ask for a Bimbo's matchbook at the coat check counter.
  • Great martinis.
