For Locals Only – Ok, so it's not really for locals only, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a tourist wandering inside this cozy venue. This place has history, and it's been an absolute staple for the obscure and less-well-known music-lovers for decades. Mind you they book quite a few big names as well, but The Independent simply does not genre discriminate. You like metal? Great. Indie? Perfect. Watching movies before their official release all while drinking relatively well-priced libations? This is your place. The raised stage allows every patron to have the exact same viewing opportunity, whether you're on the balcony or not.
Great venue for live concerts! – I've been here several times to see concerts and I was very impressed with the sound system there....but alittle small when it gets packed....
Best Venue in SF – The Independent has amazing sight lines from all areas of the venue and the most amazing sound system in the Bay Area. You will be hard pressed to find a club that is going to have this level of talent, but in the size of an intimate setting. Friendly staff and good times abound at this joint on Divis.
A North Panhandle concert venue showcasing world-class talent. – In Short
This space has been a neighborhood staple for more than 30 years (most recently known as the Justice League). In early 2004, it reopened as the Independent: a completely renovated, 500-person-capacity club. The 21-and-over crowd varies depending on the evening's performers, which can range from hip-hop superstars to indie-rock hotshots.
