Caroline was very responsive throughout the booking process. The space, as advertised, had just the right capacity and accommodations for our intimate film fundraiser, which included video projection and outside food and beverage. Caroline and her associates were gracious enough to offer us a tour of the space in advance of/preparation for the event.
Wow! What an incredible evening we are grateful to Jabiril and to Caroline for their flexibility, great customer service and for this wonderful space. Our event went off without a hitch. The ambience of the room is perfect for creating a cozy, festive mood and the sccoustics are very good for live music. The art on the walls is tasteful and helps guests realize they are in s San Francisco historical treasure that should be treated accordingly. I highly recommend this venue, it is fairly priced, has a central location in a vibrant section of our city and cones with amazingly personable and kind staff.
Wonderful space with lots of light in a great neighborhood. It's at the intersection of North Beach, Jackson Sq, Financial District and Chinatown. Our meeting attendees loved it and found it easy to get to from nearby hotels and public trans. The staff members really helpful! Wifi was great and the bathrooms were clean. It's also a wonderful commemoration of Manilatown and an important piece of SF history.
Had a wonderful celebration at your awesome venue! The location is excellent- nice huge open space with awesome artwork, huge windows and parking next door. The music setup with projector and big screen was fantastic! Our host Jibril was super helpful and also an amazing piano player. Caroline was so awesome in helping us and we look forward to having more events at your wonderful location! What a gem!
