San Francisco Bath house.

By Dai Henwood

This famous local gig venue is a must-visit, particularly during the International Comedy Festival.

This is a great local venue for live music, stand-up comedy and whatever else is in town. It’s special to me because it’s the venue where I really grew as a comedian (it was then called Indigo.) I love coming here because the staff always make you feel at home. It has the grungy feel of an old school rock venue, while still offering great bar facilities and an overhead balcony (however, be sure to bring a jacket if you’re planning to park up there for the night). The best time to go is during the International Comedy Festival. They present two shows a night during festival season, with the added bonus of late shows over the weekend.
