Elbo Room

Map & Directions 647 Valencia
San Francisco, CA 94110

SF Weekly's Description

The Elbo Room ain't the rock Valhalla it once was, but a bar and pinball machines downstairs and a music venue upstairs provide entertainment that varies between DJ nights and live bands ranging from hip-hop to punk to funk to samba. There's never a cover charge for the downstairs bar, whose crimson-candlelit booths are often jam-packed with attractive scenesters. The second-floor music room, meanwhile, attracts a crowd as varied as the events themselves: hippies, hipsters, goths, rockers, hip-hop heads, salsa dancers, old-school soul twisters - name any demographic, they've all been here at one time or another.

Tips from foursquare

  • Mark C. on 03/15/09

    Go to the Elbo Room in the Mission, and head upstairs to see the live music.

  • Joey M. on 03/14/09

    Elbo Room is a nice hybrid establishment, a little yuppie but still hipster mission. Play some pinball, pacman and jump in the photobooth.

  • Philip J. on 05/21/11

    Check out DJ Lucky's Soul Party every 1st and 3rd Sat night upstairs. Classic 60's soul in The Mission...awesome.

  • Ramsey on 04/30/11

    Go upstairs on Christmas day. \m/

  • Maggie M. on 05/08/09

    Is it between 5-9 p.m.? Settle in for happy hour(s) at a very chill Elbo Room. ($2 draft pint, or $1 off drinks) Leave with a photo booth strip to tack on the fridge.
