The Warfield is a great venue. It's not far from Union Square, it's on Market St. between Mason & Taylor (982 Market). You can walk there. It's on the edge of the Tenderloin, but should be fairly safe at night, since there are a lot of people around in that area.

It is about 1/2 mile walk. walk to Market St. turn left one block. It is a bit sketchy later at night. You will be with lots of folks afterward. Just head back the same direction. Don't proceed further west. You will be fine. It's a nice venue. Here is an article about the recent restoration.

From Union Square you can walk it and, if you are walking with other concertgoers at the end back towards Union Square, you're going to be just fine. Take Market Street to get to it. It is located between Taylor & Mason. They will allow camera phones, but no cameras. Any objects that could be questionable should not be brought in or they will take it. If you smoke, like all venues, they do not allow smoking indoors. There are no ins and outs at this venue.

If you are walking down Powell to Market St, it's actually a right turn on Market.

Good save Simbot! I guess I was thinking about the return. a bit of dyslexia. Yes, turn RIGHT at Market.
