Hotel Utah Saloon

Live Music in Downtown, Civic Center & SoMa

This Victorian saloon ruled SF's '70s underground scene, when upstarts Whoopi Goldberg and Robin Williams took to the stage – and fresh talents surface here during Monday open-mike nights, indie-label debuts and twangy weekend showcases. In the '50s the bartender graciously served Beats and drifters but snipped off suits' ties; now you can wear whatever, but there's a $20 credit-card minimum.
