Overview

Since its' founding in 1995 Biscuits and Blues has made a home in the heart of San Francisco and has served hot biscuits and cool blues ever since. The venue is lucky to have some of the best Blues musicians in the world right here in the city, and has been honored time and time again as the Bay Area's #1 Blues club. For 20 years Biscuits and Blues has earned the respect of the Blues community and has been named America's #1 Blues nightclub by both the Blues Foundation and by the Bay Area Blues Society. Six nights a week Biscuits and Blues works to keep the blues alive with two shows a night. If it's Blues, they approve: Delta, Chicago, Texas, Boogie-woogie, Gospel, Old-time, Jazz, Brass and Soul. On any given night you'll find ribs on the grill, New Orleans-style Gumbo in the pot, and Creole Jambalaya hot off the pan. Biscuits and Blues also serves California wines, local microbrews and their signature selection of specialty cocktails from their full service bar.

Intimate, downstairs jazz and blues club. The service was excellent, drink prices were reasonable, and the biscuits were delicious! We happened to be in town and were able to see Toronzo Cannon - he and his band were excellent.

I'm not even a Big Blues Fan and this was over-the top performance. Highly recommend this place. We got off the plane, checked into hotel and went straight here for drinks, dinner and music. Good food even in a bar!
