The space is located in the Potrero Hill/Design District neighborhood of San Francisco and is a converted machine shop originally built in the late 1800's. Many original features are still intact. It was home to and antique and art gallery for the past 30 years prior to becoming the offices of an international event designer and producer. If you're looking for that at home experience look no further. The space is perfect for team meetings, off-sites, conferences, presentations, product launches, dinners, pop up shops and galleries, cocktail receptions, intimate weddings and holiday parties or anything else you comes up with! The exterior of the brick masonry building is covered in old growth vines and surrounded on two sides by 10 foot tall clipped topiaries. You enter the building through the original sliding door and arrive in the drive through porte-cochère. Within this space there are exposed brick walls, estate planters overflowing with ivy and topiaries. Access to the building is through the double french doors. As you enter the building you find you’re in the grand foyer with oversized crystal chandelier, italian statuary and well appointed art. There are two rooms that open off the foyer. One functions as a reception/gathering space and the other as conference/dining space. The reception room is eclectically furnished with multiple seating areas. Accessed through french doors is an intimate cobblestoned courtyard filled with green and blooming seasonal plants. The conference/dining room can accommodate up to 24 at one long table. Located just behind the conference space is the full kitchen and an additional half bath. There is also a door with access to the street for catering load in. On the Second floor are two additional spaces. The Chandelier Ballroom Room and the Library. The Ballroom is surrounded on 3 side by large warehouse windows with views of the downtown skyline and garden.

The space is a hidden gem in San Francisco and perfect for many types of events. Visitors to our retail pop-up shop were in love with the venue. The team at Villa Fontaine were extremely helpful and accommodating. Thanks to Brooke, Katherine and Robert for helping to make our event a success!
We held a series of events at this space for 3 days. It was really beautiful and Brooke our host was so helpful. We love the staff here and the venue was outstanding. Thank you for making our event such a success Brooke!
The event team was just awesome. Everyone was so friendly, professional, and very customer service oriented. My team really loved the space and I received multiple complements on the space. I'm super grateful it was such a successful event and look forward to hosting another event here in the future.
This space was incredible and perfect for our team of 30 people! It's big enough where everybody has enough space to move around, yet still feels intimate. The decor is beautiful and there was plenty of room for breakout space. Charlotte was amazing to work with. She was super responsive, helpful, and answered all the questions I had. I will defintely be telling team coordinators at my office to book this place for other teams. I would book this space again! Thanks Charlotte and team.
Love this place! Hidden gem in Potrero Hill. Would be super cool for a wedding! Our event turned out to be a little larger, so the space ended up being tight but just a great space all together and the staff.....so super helpful! We had a couple of mishaps with Peerspace but the staff at the venue helped with everything! Thanks so much for a successful event, Charlotte!
Villa Fontaine was the perfect space for our 2-day team offsite. The two story venue is beautifully and comfortably decorated, and the multiple rooms allowed for us to have a main presentation area plus additional breakout spaces. Having worked on many events, I find it a huge plus that they already have their own beautiful decor inside, but can move anything you do not want. Robert and Charlotte are friendly and flexible, very easy to work with. The venue is versatile and could easily be used for offsites, receptions, weddings, and more. Highly recommended. I hope to be back!
