Mint SF karaoke

A San Francisco BAR with history

The Mint SF bar got its name from the Federal Mint (which prints money down the street). The Mint once was a fine dining restaurant that served Steak and Lobster. In the 90s it was taken over and converted into a karaoke bar much as you see it today. The Mint has hosted many LGBT events and competitions over the years and remains “an everyone’s welcome” safe, supportive establishment.

As an establishment, we are happy to serve the Bay Area as San Francisco’s best SF karaoke Lounge for over thirty years.

Great vibes, nice bar with drinks. There is a stage and the crowd is all friendly. Friday evening was pretty full but we got a good spot. Nice place if you want to celebrate a birthday or just have fun with friends. Highly recommend. Prices of drinks are also reasonable. Location is good.

I had a great time on a Thursday night. It wasn't too busy and the bartenders were very sweet. It's a nice atmosphere and cool Backlit LEDs on the stage for singing. Overall it was a cool vibe 😎
Divey. Dark. Dingy. Amazing!!! Mixed crowd that wasn't as young as Silver clouds. Big LED screen that plays graphics behind the singers which is cool. CASH BAR! With ATMs on site. Place gets packed and is extremely busy.
