Hotel Utah is a low key, neighborhood bar that serves up local music seven nights a week along with food and drink. Shows never cost more than a few dollars, and are sometimes free. Mondays are open mic night, so if you want to become a star yourself, start here. The location near the happening SoMa District makes for an interesting mix of clientèle ranging from dot-commers (and increasingly rare species) to artists to refugees from the Financial District. Have a brew and enjoy the people-watching.
