Private Parties + Events


We’re all yours.


We are located in the heart of the Mission District and our gallery space, with long raw ­edge wooden tables, marble and iron bar, cookbook library, and art exhibits, offers a beautiful setting for your party or gathering. We can accommodate up to 30 people for seated dinners and 40 people for cocktail parties. 

We partner with Bi ­Rite Market to offer catered platters or passed appetizers at birthday parties, baby showers, rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, and other gatherings. We offer private cooking classes led by one of our regular instructors, as well as dinner parties prepared just for you by our in­house chef. During the day, our space is available for meetings and retreats. 

We are best suited for small events (e.g., staff retreats, bridal showers, dinners, birthday parties, etc.) and larger cocktail parties with rolling attendance over the course of the event. The price of food is not included in the price of Catered Parties, Meetings, and Events. You may order catering through Bi Rite Market, or arrange for outside food that is already prepared.

Your rental includes our space with a private restroom, tables, benches, dishes, silverware, glassware, cloth napkins, vases, votive candles, and access to our projector and sound system. Two staff members will be included in the price, who will handle set up, clean up and all service during the event. Our alcohol license allows beer and wine to be served.

Before selecting a date, please review our public calendar
