Before Slow Club, there was a bar called Sunset Club...a Muni driver hang out.

In 1991 Steve Decosse opened Slow Club. He kept the reference a secret, but over the years we have discovered that the name comes from Blue Velvet, a David Lynch film from the 80's. In the film, Isabella Rossellini sings in a bar called Slow Club. Steve hired Jim Moffat as the chef. Eventually, Jim bought out Steve and owned the restaurant with his partner, Katie Dyer. A few years later, Jim opened another restaurant, 42 Degrees and decided to sell Slow Club. Erin Rooney was a server at 42 Degrees at the time. She bought Slow Club in 1998. 

The neighborhood has boomed, busted and boomed again, but our space has remained the same.  We have focused on providing high quality food and drinks for a good value. We are dedicated to working directly with local farms and ranches and having integrity in the food and drinks we serve.  We are honored to be a part of our greater community and love serving our neighbors and new friends too.

Chef_Matt_3.jpg

Matt Paul

CHEF DE CUISINE

Matt Paul's passion for cooking started in the garden.  At a young age, Matt learned to cook from the garden's bounty at his family home in Michigan. He continued to hone his skills when he moved to San Francisco and worked his way up through the ranks at Town Hall to executive sous chef.
As executive chef at Slow Club since 2007, Matt's cooking is contemporary yet with a nostalgia to the American classics. Working closely with several farms and ranches, he crafts his menus from the best they have to offer.  From garden or farm, food picked right from the ground remains his strongest influence.

Selah Flint

GENERAL MANAGER  

Selah worked as a pizza-maker, barrista and server in Portland before making it to San Francisco and Slow Club.  She started waiting tables at Slow Club over ten years ago and has since worked as a server, opening manager and pastry chef at Serpentine and now GM of Slow Club and Serpentine.  Through all the variety, she has learned that having a clear vision and staying true to it is the best course.  She says, "It's simple. We just want our guests to have a really good experience."

Erin Rooney

OWNER

Erin started bussing tables at 15 in her aunt's restaurant in Carmel Valley.  The first time she ate at Slow Club in the early 90's, she knew she wanted to work there.  She loved the obscure location, casual vibe, creative clientele and great food.  She landed a serving job at then sister restaurant 42 degrees.  In 1998, Erin bought the Slow Club with her saved tips from 42 degrees and a small business loan at the age of 27.
