    Very civilized, non-crazy small place to listen to live music in San Francisco. $20/person minimum seems reasonable for setting. Had a nice night out with my wife.

    If you're looking for a local hangout owned by a few friends who make this place fun, warm and friendly, this is a must stop on your way to Union Square. Dog friendly and in a cool part of town!

    Good food, excellent fries (we all agreed that it was the best fries we had ate ever!).
    Bar with a variety of beers, drinks etc. Nice staff. Music was not too loud so one could sit and talk.
    Will go back!

    If you are someone worried about going somewhere away from the main tourist areas, don't come here. If you are looking for something different, this might be worth a try.
    We were visiting SF from Sunday to Tuesday before taking a cruise, wanted to visit the main tourist sites, but also wanted to mix with the locals. We like Blue Grass Music and found out about this place.
    We were staying in Central SF but needed to catch a bus to visit this bar which was not large. Don't expect meals to be served, you will be disappointed. Don't expect plentiful comfortable seats, you will be disappointed. You can, however, move empty chairs about and enjoy a good selection of beers.
    Monday was Blue Grass night but other nights have other themes. We attended the early evening 'jamming' session which had 11 musicians participating. We would have liked to have tried the 'professional' show later in the evening but didn't have the time. Maybe during our next visit.
    If on like something different, give it a try.

    Had a great night out yesterday. Music was very good. The quartet was really engaged.
    Cocktails were very good as well.
    Only 4 stars because I had to stand despite few seats available (reserves...but no show) and waiters were not pleasant/rude.
    I would go again foe the music but with reservation next time.

    Club 36 is closed. Replaced by bar and restaurant that are located on mezzanine. Should be removed from listings. The 36th floor is used for private events. When not in use, the views are beautiful.
