CAFE DU NORD
Caf Du Nord is a nightclub, restaurant and live music venue located in the landmark Swedish-American building in the Upper Market district of San Francisco. Although the Du Nord is known for the quality of the national music acts it showcases, the club retains the ambiance of a classic lounge. Built in 1907, it has maintained its Victorian interiors, featuring the original faux decorated paneling and wainscoting, and a forty-foot hand carved mahogany bar. Details throughout the club hearken back to its past life as a notorious speakeasy during Prohibition. The rich red walls and dark wood interior create the perfect environment to enjoy classic cocktails and the most eclectic live music in town seven nights a week.

THE SWEDISH AMERICAN HALL
The Swedish American Hall is operated by Caf Du Nord as a live music and entertainment venue. Located above the Du Nord in the same building, the Swedish American Hall was built in 1907 by Swedish craftsmen. Its centerpiece is a spectacular grand ballroom that is full of warm woods and old country charm. Though the grand ballroom is large enough to support leading national acts, it is the perfect venue to provide guests with a uniquely intimate musical experience.

THE BAR
Caf Du Nord is not only the hottest live music venue in town it is one of San Franciscos hippest watering holes according to SOMA Magazine. Or, as Rolling Stone Magazine puts it, "located in a former speak-easy, this dark-wooded, subterranean watering hole is the perfect place to lose a few decades over a batch of martinis." Of course, being a former speakeasy, we take a special amount of pride in providing the ultimate cocktail experience. Come on in for a great drink with no attitude.

THE RESTAURANT
Caf Du Nord provides some of the tastiest food in town offering a full dinner menu and bar food 7 nights a week. Our restaurant and catering operations are directed by Chef John Lamkin, owner of the highly regarded Street Restaurant in San Francisco. Check out our nightclub menu!
