Black Cat, in the Tenderloin, is an upscale spot for drinks and live music. Prepare to spend some money, including a music charge and (if you sit at a table in the downstairs lounge) potentially also a food and beverage minimum, depending on the night and time you’re there. The food can be a little hit or miss, so we recommend focusing on drinks - there’s no charge for sitting in the bar area.
