Kimo's - CLOSED

Map & Directions 1351 Polk
San Francisco, CA 94109


SF Weekly's Description

Long a home to trannies and queers of all ages, Kimo's has seen its Polk Gulch neighborhood evolve from a druggy hustler hotspot to a nighttime destination that attracts people from both tony Russian Hill and the hipper parts of the Tenderloin. Climb a flight of narrow stairs (the curse of all amp-toting musicians) and you'll find a small but cozy music venue that hosts drag shows, indie bands, and the occasional DJ event. There's nothing fancy about Kimo's, which is actually quite refreshing as the city outside slides towards ever-increasing gentrification.

    Live music upstairs every night

    I tried to go here, but the bartender was too 'busy' (chatting) to see me through the other 10 guys in the bar.

    Rumor is, new owners and it will clean up in early 2012. Give it a chance.

  • Ryan T. on 11/10/11

    The place was founded in the late 60s & was gay-owned till the early 2000s, since then its gone downhill. Save yourself from being creeped out and go to The Cinch instead. Its a few blocks north.
