The Warfield is noble looking theater with a rich history. The exterior of the venue is kind of unassuming, but the interior had a touch of class about it. The interior had high ceilings, regal drapery and gold embellishments. It’s a 2300 seater originally built...More

Aww man- some of the greatest acts in rock music have played there even though it's kind of a dump. But that's rock and rim.

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.

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....More

Sorry this question is not about the Warfield per se, but the surrounding neighborhood: Did you feel safe leaving the Warfield and walking in the area at night? I heard that it is in or near the ghetto part of town!

Yeah it's not that bad. I might however opt to park my car in a garage or lot as opposed to on the street however.
