The Days of Live Rock 'n' Roll at Kimo's on Polk Street Are Numbered

Rock 'n' roll types who like their dives better get in their time at Kimo's now — after this year, the longtime Polk Street bar and rock venue probably won't be a rock venue anymore.

The 34-year-old club, which has hosted shows by the likes of Metallica, as well as countless local bands, is in the process of being sold. And the current owners of Kimo's expect that it won't remain a home for live local music in the hands of its new owners, who will likely take possession in January.

Current co-owner Tony Malson says he's not totally sure of the purchasers' plans, but “my gut feeling is that they're going to make it into a cocktail lounge.” (The purchasers declined through a representative to speak to All Shook Down for this story.)
