Starting life as the defunct restaurant Warehouse, Slim's was officially reopened in 1988 by legendary musician Boz Scaggs and his band as a personal venue for their performances. The club quickly expanded, however, being host to numerous other musical acts ranging from Prince to Radiohead to Citizen and more, including Scaggs himself from time to time. Lauded as one of the best music venues, bars, clubs and a host of other things by numerous publications, it's safe to say it's lived up to the promise to provide the public with good food and good music in equal measure.
