It's true.

Slow Club is closing August 30th.  For good.  It' the end of a 24-year era.

I'm honored to have become a part of such a dynamic, creative and caring community.

At the end of the day, it is about the individual people...and there have been so many that have shaped Slow Club over the years.  On this unlikely corner of the Mission, we have been blessed to surround ourselves with amazing staff, regulars, purveyors and ultimately friends.

I could tell a hundred stories of the soulful food, the intoxicating drinks, the heartbreaks, the punches landed (3 that I know of), but my favorites are the romances.  First dates turned into wedding parties and kids starting high school.  The precious everyday moments fueled by nurturing food, community and a place to hang out.

Life in a restaurant is like an intense relationship.  There are high highs and definite lows.  But from the best relationships, we take with us something so special, it changes us forever.

Here at Slow Club, we are no strangers to change, but we are humbled by the impact of the relationships that deeply changed us, and left us better.  

With gratitude and lots of love,

Erin Rooney
Owner of Slow Club since 1998

Here is our story...

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.
