Elbo Room is the most intimate and diverse live music venue in the bay area.”
- New York Times

Elbo Room is located in the historic Mission District of San Francisco on Valencia Street between 17th Street and 18th Street. We are open seven days a week from 5:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Elbo Room is a 21-and-over club.

The bar originally opened in 1935, as the Prohibition era closed, and has been a place of entertainment ever since. Over the years the spot has operated as a Spanish restaurant, a country-western bar, and one of the country’s first all-women’s night clubs. In 1991, Elbo Room was established as a full bar and place of entertainment.

The building is a two-story structure with the main bar downstairs, a secondary bar adjoins the dance floor and stage upstairs. As a place of year-round entertainment, the club caters to a wide range of musical and cultural tastes. On any given night, live bands and DJs play jazz, funk, soul, Afro-Cuban, hip-hop, rock, indie rock, or alternative music. Come join us for “San Francisco’s Longest Happy Hour” every day from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., featuring special $2 draft pints and $1 off all other drinks.
