Our 1,200 square foot storefront features multiple vignettes brimming with mid-century furniture, decor, and art. Design elements of the store feature reclaimed wood walls, wood floors, and original victorian tin-paneled walls and ceiling. Second 300 square foot room has an authentic speakeasy feel with reclaimed wood walls, rustic lighting and decor, built-in bar, and record listening loft reachable by rustic wood ladder. Rental fees include a bartender for the night, recycling, and glassware (we can also provide ice for your event for additional fee). We love hosting birthday parties, holiday get-togethers, costume parties, work shin-digs or creative meetings, and catered dinner parties! The back bar room is opened up and features a beautiful live edge wood bar and a live-edge wood shelf along the wall for drinks and food. Above the bar is a wood-lined loft space w/ skylight for lounging and watching the party below! Food and drinks are bring-your-own (see rules below for more details), but we can put together a customized drink package and provide all beer, wine, and cocktails for an additional fee if you would like. Getting here is a piece of cake! We are located on Mission street within walking distance from 2 BART stations and the 14 and 49 bus lines are footsteps away. There is also street parking and 2 parking garages within 2 blocks away. We have a modest sound system but are open to you bringing in live music or a dj set up!
Please read all rules carefully: FOOD/ALCOHOL RULES: 1) There is to be NO SELLING OF ALCOHOL whatsoever without the proper special event permit, which can be obtained here for a minimal fee: http://www.abc.ca.gov/forms/pdfspc.html 2) Bartender will ID guests who appear to be under 30, with absolutely NO serving of alcohol to minors. 2) A maximum of 2 signature cocktails can be served with up to 3 ingredients, in addition to beer and wine, to avoid backup at the bar and to keep things moving smoothly. We are happy to recommend some simple but tasty cocktails to serve! 3) Use of our bartender is non-negotiable as he/she is also responsible for keeping an eye on the backroom, safety of guests, and to prevent any damage to the space. It is also up to the bartender's discretion to cut off or escort out any overly drunk or rowdy guests in order to prevent damage to the space. 4)Please note, and we can't emphasis this enough, ours is not an ordinary bar. We ask guests to be on their best behavior, not get overly intoxicated, and respect our space as any damage done due to overly intoxicated guests will render additional fees. Our space is not to be used for parties at which to come and get wasted. This is NOT a frat house nor a dive bar. Please keep it classy. 5) Alcohol and food are to be provided by renter and is to be served in the bar room. Drinks and food can be consumed throughout the store as long as guests are effectively using the coasters, napkins, and trays provided. It is up to venue staff's judgement in determining this. Ice can be provided by us for an additional fee based on the number of guests in attendance and drinks served. If you would prefer to provide your own ice keep in mind that ice needed is usually vastly underestimated and nobody wants warm beer and luke-warm cocktails, right?! We say better to have a bit too much ice than not enough. 6)Carousel staff and bartender will gather glassware, recyclables, and drink trash at the end of the night, but IT IS UP TO RENTER TO GATHER AND PACK OUT ANY FOOD LEFTOVERS OR FOOD RELATED TRASH AT THE END OF THE EVENT. Bartender will box up any leftover drinks/ingredients and clean up behind the bar. Ideally all leftovers and belongings are to be packed out by you after the event, but in extreme circumstances renter may neatly stack leftovers and pick them up no later than 12pm the following day (after 12pm storage fees apply). *All food and food servingware must be packed out by you after the event. Store and bar room are wheelchair accessible, restroom is not and has 5 steps leading up to it. Event rentals include both our entire store and the speakeasy bar. In order to prevent damage we clear the store of small breakables and provide plenty of coasters and napkins on furniture in order to further prevent damage. During events an employee of the space will be on-site to do any further damage control, gather used glassware, and restock as needed. If any irreparable damage is done to furniture or items due to negligence, excessively rowdy behavior, or overly intoxicated individuals these costs of damage will be charged at the end of the night. Store is constantly changing, so any in-store vignettes seen before event might be different by the time of the actual event, but we always have several fun, vintage themed set ups to enjoy during your event. Generally, our space is available to be rented outside of our open business hours (see below), but if you would like to rent the store during our open hours listed below or need us to close early there will be an ADDITIONAL FEE of $100/hour to close the store for use. Store's open business hours are: Monday: closed Tuesday: closed Wednesday: 12-7 Thursday: 2-7 Friday: 12-7 Saturday:12-7 Sunday:12-6 End time can be as late as 12am Sun-Thurs. and 1:00am on Fridays and Saturdays (NYE and Halloween excepted). Set up and break down MUST be completed w/in the rental period. *Generally 30 minutes is enough time for both set up, and clean up/ shut down of event. All guests must be out of store by end of rental period or additional fees apply.
Kelley is wonderful and this space was an a absolute hit for my friends 30th bday I hosted. Everyone was blown away at the venue and Kelley was a fantastic partner. If you want to throw an event that will leave people talking — this is it.
This was an incredible and unique event space— perfect for our group! We used the back room for a presentation on the projector and had a little pizza and wine party :) It was fun to poke around the store, too! The hosts were lovely— super helpful and very kind. Communication through the booking process and leading up to the event was seamless. Everything was great and I would definitely recommend this space!
What a great experience!! First of all Kelley really did a stellar job pre, during and post event by setting expectations, answering question and just generally being helpful. The venue itself is totally charming, all the guests loved the space and all the furniture, decorations and art! I highly recommend throwing an event at this space!
We had a FABULOUS time here. Office christmas party consisting of a twenties themed murder mystery with bar and food. There were about 50 of us. Kelley was wonderful and really helpful throughout. Great communication. We were able to arrange for the store to close an hour early and also hire a bartender through Kelley. My staff loved the venue - at least one bought something while there! All the little areas for sitting and chatting were a big success. It might seem an odd idea to have a party in a store but it really worked.
