It’s always nice to get a new client who’s just down the block from HQ. San Francisco’s Hotel Utah has some rich history, and continues to stand strong after more than 100 years. If Ticketfly were a baby, then Hotel Utah would be our great granddaddy, nostalgically retelling stories of those wild prohibition days. Grounded in the city’s South of Market district, The Utah is a place of tasty bites (which is why we frequently have lunch meetings there!), cheap drinks and a concert almost every night of the week. The traditional saloon was built in 1908, and quickly became a regular hang out spot for gamblers, hustlers and politicians alike.
Fast forward to 1977, Paul Gaer bought the landmark and turned it into a radical venue to support local music, experimental art, writers, comedy and theater. Ever since the transformation, The Utah has gained a reputation for having one of the most generous stages in the city. Speaking of local, they also host a killer weekly open mic night, some say it’s the best in San Francisco! Take a look at the calendar, it’s chock full of Bay Area bands, unsigned up-and-comers as well as national acts such as Eleanor Friedberger of The Fiery Furnaces! And you’ll have a much better time going to hotelutah.com and looking for shows, since we hooked them up fancy-style with a fully branded website, made the way they like.
Buddy up with The Hotel Utah online, and drop in for a good time!
