Built in 1906, and located below street level, Cafe Du Nord has a sordid history as a brothel, a speakeasy, and the meeting place of secret societies. It now houses one of San Francisco's favorite music venues!
Upstairs from Du Nord, The Swedish American Hall offers another stellar venue for live performance. Built in 1907, the hall embodies old world design and craftsmanship with 20-foot arched ceilings, red skylights, wooden floors, and a wrap around balcony.
Past performers at the Cafe Du Nord and the Swedish American Hall have included: Arthur Lee and Love’s last show, Neil Young, The Zombies, Dave Davies (the Kinks), John Cale, J. Mascis, Frank Black, Blink 182, St. Vincent, The Decembrists, Spoon, Iron and Wine, Rilo Kiley, Vincent Gallo, Mumford and Sons, Train, Cake, Sara Bareilles, Andrew W.K., Brian Jonestown Massacre, Girls, Alkaline Trio, and the comedian Scott Capurro.
