The Rite Spot Cafe features local bands, comedians and performers and supports the local music, art and comedy scene. Our music program is eclectic catering to our diverse clientele so you are just as likely to see Toshio Hirano singing Jimmy Roger's tunes as a 20's era Tin Pan Alley band The Frisky Frolics. Or local artist, musician and detective Mr. Lucky singing his quirky lounge tunes as you'd see Reuben Rye banging out instrumental versions of 80's post punk on our beautiful piano. Most shows start around 9:00 pm and are FREE unless otherwise noted. There is a $8.00 per person minimum during all free live performances.

We are a rare San Francisco luxury set in an unpretentious atmosphere.

"As soon as you enter the Rite Spot Café, it's apparent that this quaint Mission District hang is a cut above the other small dives in the area. It's the perfect combination of neighborhood bar and charming hideaway, with friendly-but-don't-fuck-with-me bartenders, white tablecloths, and an affordable, delectable menu of mostly Italian comfort food. But even with those charms, the strong suit of the place is the live entertainment; the setting frequently draws in some of the area's best musicians for free shows. The regular gigs on Sunday nights, when the rickety house piano at the front of the room is taken over by some of the most skilled singer/songwriters, make it an ideal room for listening. Aside from a little low conversation and the occasional clink of a glass, people are there to listen, and what they're listening to is top-notch."
