NOTE: I usually respond to daytime inquires immediately, certainly within the hour.
Large, funky, eclectic art space.
This 2,900 sq ft converted warehouse with full commercial kitchen can accommodate ALL kinds of events: pop-up restaurants, weddings, fundraisers, corporate meetings, workshops, theater, you name it.
As stated, this space can be rented for events. Costs are between $400 (a meeting with a small non-profit on a Monday night) and $2,000, (holiday parties, weddings and corporate or weekend) depending on the type of event and the night of the week. We have special rates for first communions and quinceañeras. Locals who reside in the 94110 zip code enjoy a discounted rate as well.
The large main event space and full commercial kitchen really can host most anything. We can seat 80 to 120 people for dinner and have everything you need: tables, chairs, tablecloths, cloth napkins, plates, flatware, glassware. Our kitchen is fully stocked and replete with 2 wolf ranges, 3 door commercial reach-in fridge, 1 door freezer and a commercial dishwasher.
The space has a full public address system, microphones, LED stage lights, and control board. There are stage flats, curtains and tons of space! We would prefer art happenings or theatre events. We dislike parties without art or any event that's more about booze than art.
We like to rent to gentle events like art receptions or comedy shows. Bands, DJ's, drinking contests and other alcohol-based things are not really our speed. We are not Puritans, but this is NOT a frat party space. We are interested in events that have a connection to the arts. Weddings also work really well here.
All events have a hard stop at 12AM. This not negotiable, so please do not ask.
I offer the space for between $400 to $2,000 (plus cleaning) depending on what the event is and the impact it has on the space. You are welcome to ask for a discount if you are a charitable organization or if your event is a benefit for a charitable cause.
Please contact us with your ideas.
A word about pricing: since the space is a flexible space, the pricing has to be flexible. It can't be fair that a wedding pays the same rent as a poetry reading. So I do the best I can.
WEDDING: $1800 plus a $120 to $200 cleaning fee.
HOUSE MANAGER: for most events you need to have a house manager to help out. They cost $25 an hour and they are helpful and fun, but will not wash dishes or work the door.
Backyard is off limits after 9PM so as not to disturb the neighbors.
The place is odd and unlikely and the last of its kind. It's the last small converted art warehouse in SF. In the past, EVERY artist had one of these. They rented, I bought mine. Now it's the last one. I offer it here as my job but also as a place where cool stuff can happen here in the city of Art and Innovation.
If it's in the building, you can use it.
The neighborhood I live in is called the Mission. It's reasonably safe, clean and friendly. It's where the artists and cool stuff is.
The 24th street BART stop is 3 blocks away. MUNI is even closer. The 12 Folsom bus stops on this block, the 14 Mission, 49 Van Ness and the 27 Bryant are a block away.
Please do not smoke in the building.
Please do not park in the parking lot next to the building. It is not ours, it belongs to the building next door. They will tow your car in a quick second.
Please do not be confused: the cleaning fee is for sweeping, mopping, and laundry. Dishes are to be washed by you immediately! We don't have mice or bugs, and we don't want them.
Please put liners in garbage cans.
Please be considerate of our neighbors. Please don't dump recycling bottles or have super loud conversations right in front of the premises, this is a residential area.
