Music Venues in Civic Center / Tenderloin Overview

Asian Art Museum  - Museum in Civic Center / Tenderloin, SF

In a city with so much talent, it comes as no surprise that Civic Center and Tenderloin music venues host some of the hippest acts in the Bay Area. Whether at an old theater, storied music hall, or new haunt, these neighborhoods are a haven for any music lover.

The Orpheum Theatre is a performance venue in the Civic Center district that first opened in 1926. Since then it has hosted a slew of shows, from The Grateful Dead, to Broadway musicals like American Idiot and Wicked.

Over in Tenderloin at the Great American Music Hall – a onetime brothel built in 1907 – acts of every possible style have graced the low stage, from Duke Ellington to Animal Collective.

More contemporary joints such as the Rickshaw Stop, an all-ages venue where DJs spin past bedtime, and Hemlock Tavern, where hipsters sip PBR to the tunes of local favorites, allow revelers to dive into live music with more spontaneity than places that require pre-purchased tickets.

When heading out for a night of San Francisco tunage, music venues in Civic Center and Tenderloin are a sure way to have a rockin’ good time.
