Kimo’s is Closing
SF is losing another local music venue. Kimo’s is closing it’s doors on 12/31/11. New owners are coming in and remodeling the joint. Remodeling, however, doesn’t included keeping the upstairs open. This place is a real gem. I mean, it’s a dive but it caters to the local music scene and it’s a place for traveling bands to get in and do a set. The white van stop in SF for many acts doing the stretch from LA to Portland.
Alas, it is closing shop. If you want to check it out it’s the corner of Pine and Polk, 1351 Polk St, SF CA 94109. Seedy folks, cheap drinks, cold beer, loud tunes. Amen!
Look for some yuppy froo froo bar coming soon!
