The space was great, we had an all day team meeting downstairs. The host was very friendly and accommodating. Don't forget to visit the bakery next door for amazing pastries.
I recently hosted a launch party for my business in this space and had a stellar experience. The space itself is absolutely gorgeous, with tons of natural light streaming in and the white walls providing a perfectly blank slate for any event. The space is even more beautiful in person than it appears in the photos! I interacted with three different people throughout the process and they couldn't have been more lovely to work with. They were so supportive of all of the ideas I had to customize the space for my event and were so helpful in making it all come to life. They also had no hesitation in hosting a kid-friendly event, which was a must for me given the nature of my business...many of the other gallery-type spaces I explored were not keen on having kids in their spaces. The event was a total success and many guests commented on how amazing the space was. Now I am just trying to find another excuse to book the space again! :)
My organization SF Brothers held a charity fundraiser event at R/SF and the service we receive was beyond perfect. The host hung pictures, clean, and more. The ventilation was not great but the host also brought out some fans prior to the event to cool office space by the time my time the event started the space was nice and cool and comfortable and all the guests had a really good time and enjoy themselves. The ladies are all easy going and give good advice. I will recommend and put this venue again.
The space was the perfect size for a one person art gallery. I had enough room to fit 20 pieces on the walls. My biggest complaint is the ventilation in the building. My event was on an extraordinarily hot day in the summer, which made the room extremely hot. There's little to no ventilation inside the building. The large glass windows allowed for direct heat. My guests spent most of their time outside, which took away from their experience at the art gallery. Wouldn't recommend hosting another event here due to that one fact. The location is close to the Tenderloin too. Not really an ideal area to have guests park their cars. But on the brighter side of things, the hosts were extremely helpful and kind. They were super accommodating.
We used this space for an engagement party for about 50 guests. In a nutshell: PROS: - Quick response time from the hosts throughout the planning. Clear and friendly communication. - Cool space with accessible loft - Great location, near fun bars and restaurants - Clean CONS: - Harsh fluorescent lighting with no dimming option - probably great for art installations, but far too bright for an evening cocktail party (even with cellophane over some of the bulbs) - Additional fee for use of PA system ($100) This was clearly communicated, however outside the norm for what I'm accustomed to when renting a small event space. - The proprietor of the space requires you to not only pack out all your trash, but to sweep, mop and even sponge down the walls after the event (or you can pay an hourly cleaning rate of $150) - We were charged $25 for a "floor paint scratch," which really should have fallen under the category of normal wear and tear in a rented event space (esp with the flooring material that was used. Impossible not to scratch) Overall, the space worked out well for our party and we had positive interactions with the host(s). Would definitely recommend the space to others with the understanding that the venue is pretty bare bones jones and there might be some additional fees at the end.
The hosts were so helpful and very accommodating, Kaitlin was very responsive the entire time and amazing when it came to setting up the day of. As far as the space, it's even better than the photos. Would definitely book again!
I have nothing but great things to say about my experience with Kaitlin and this space. The venue was perfect for our event (art exhibition) and Kaitlin was extremely responsive and accommodating to our needs and even helped with the set-up process. I would highly recommend this space!
