The club is located in the South of Market district of San Francisco, a hub of nightlife in the city, within easy access or parking and public transportation.
The premises consist of an open floor on our main level. At one end of the floor is our performance stage. At the other end we have a small balcony with table seating for 30 where guests may sit and relax by ordering one of our Dinner & Admission tickets, which comes with a 3-course prix fixe dinner. Our bar runs the length of the floor in an “L” shape. The decor is simple and tasteful, with chandeliers, brick walls, and a bar inspired by the facades of several New Orleans manors.
Slim’s offers a full bar and kitchen with bar menu, table service (limited availability) and a nightly Happy Hour that runs for the first hour after doors open. A coat check and additional restrooms are located in our downstairs level.
