Private Parties + Events


We’re all yours.


We are located in the heart of the Mission District in San Francisco. Our gallery space, with long wooden tables, marble and iron bar, cookbook library, and art, offers a beautiful setting for your party or gathering. We can accommodate up to 32 people for seated dinners and 49 people for 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 also offer private cooking classes led by our regular instructors, as well as dinner parties prepared just for you by our in­-house 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 during 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. We have one event space to offer; if we are scheduled for an event on our calendar, we are unable to host your event.

To request a private rental, please tell us more about your party and we will contact you within five days.
