Huge music festivals and concerts featuring big artists are fun, but let’s not forget where some of those people started out. In addition to introducing potentially big musicians only recently emerging, some of the smallest venues provide the best, most fun settings to enjoy live entertainment. Luckily, the San Francisco area is chock full of unique and stimulating music venues filled with a lot of character, despite their being more compact.
Sweetwater Music Hall
Beyond San Francisco, just north of the city in the town of Mill Valley, resides Sweetwater Music Hall and Café. Adjacent to the dining area of the building, the Music Hall emits a unique sense of intimacy and familiarity. Seating is available all along the perimeter. Guests can easily become acquainted with those close to them, since the Music Hall is filled with amicable patrons. Servers lap the floor offering great food and beverages. One of the best parts is the Sweetwater crowd is not a tight, claustrophobia inducing mob. Live music has never been more comfortable.
