Nice older historical looking building.

We went to see the Monkees. It was a great show. You can have drinks if you want. The lighting was very good. Would see a show there again.

Cool place to see very cool dudes. A smallish theatre offering an intimate experience. Good acoustics, and a cool vibe. Highly recommended

Arrived to the Thrice concert on Sept 15th. The outside is a little sketchy with plenty of homeless sleeping on the street. They did not bother anyone and minded their own business. I have a service dog, and when I came in they demanded paperwork. Nietzsche has been working since she was 2 and is now 11. She is licensed... More

Venue is great. Comfortable seats. Not too big. Adequate sound system. Don't know if the sound system was Warfield's or Perfume's. Entry quick. Ushers efficient and friendly. Area surround the theatre needs work by SF (and the country as a whole). At least provide sanitary facilties for people so that they can do their thing.

Haven't been here in quite some time. Holds a lot of memories for me. Saw a lot shows here in the late 90s, and have a lot of posters from said shows somewhere in a big box. First thing I noticed when we got inside onto the second tier floor was how disgustingly wet/sticky/spongy the floor/carpet was. I guess decades... More

It is dirty, let's start there. The place needs a good scrubbing, to start with. The staff are, for the most part, helpful, and some are very helpful. The music can be and often is wonderful, but the condition of the place is off-putting.

Warfield Theater was a very nice place to see Kenny Loggins for a concert! The National Electrical contractors Association had their closing entertainment at the theatre and was a VERY good choice.

Kamasi Washington opened for Snarky Puppy. An amazing tenor sax player, with an amazing band. Snarky Puppy was outstanding! Young and talented, great horn section, amazing keyboard players, two drummers, one also a full percussionist. The Warfield is the ideal place for music. Great seats, wonderful acoustics, etc.

We were walking along Market Street when we spotten this theater. Or better said, we spotted the name on the announcement sign: Erykah Badu! Just as we were leaving the closed tenue, a staffmember came to the door to fill us in. Sold out, but 20 more tickets were to be sold in 2 hours at the box-office. Yes! We... More

A beautiful and intimate venue. Sound was great, one of the best venues I've been to. Security was very friendly and helpful.
