Boom Boom Room

Live Music in Japantown, Fillmore & Pacific Heights

Jumping since the '30s, the Boom Boom remains a classic Fillmore venue for blues, soul and funk. Except for the outdoor murals and vintage photos indoors, there's nothing fancy about this joint – curtained stage, Formica tables, bar slinging potent well drinks, well-stomped checkered linoleum dance floor – but it rocks six nights a week with top touring talent. Shows start around 9pm.
