*Please note, special rates apply for New Year's Eve 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. 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) 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. 3) Bartender services included in hourly fee. 4) Bartender will ID guests who appear to be under 30, with absolutely NO serving of alcohol to minors. 5) 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. 6)Please note, 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. Please keep it classy. 7)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. We understand that accidents happen now and again, we are not looking to penalize guest for minor damage due to an accident, but any irreparable damage that 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 (some exceptions apply).

This is a little gem of a place! We hosted our team's holiday party here and everyone enjoyed how unique of a space it was! Kelley was super responsive and helpful throughout the whole process.
Richard S. booked a video shoot for 10 people
Very kind and incredibly responsive host. Had a great experience filming a small ad in this space. Would absolutely book it again.
David B. booked a 40th birthday party for 50 people
Our event, a very special birthday party, was made perfect in this fabulous combination of retail space and speakeasy bar. Proprietor Kelly was totally responsive to all our nitty details up until the day of the event when she delivered a beautiful healthy baby. Whereupon, Kevin took over and looked after our every need as we brought tons of food and beverage and cakes and decoration and even a terrific piano player. Glen, the bartender, was charming and perfect as well. Our group to the person was surprised and pleased with the ambiance of this mid-century modern consignment shop. Absolutely everyone had a great time; and that is due to the combination of the totally positive vibe of the shop environment and even more so the proprietors Kelly and Kevin. We had a lifetime experience thanks to this venue.
Iris B. booked a photo shoot for 3 people
This space is amazing!!! We did a great retro, vintage photo shoot for my music page and had a great time. Excellent lighting and lots of fun props to play with. Kelley is a very flexible and kind host. I highly recommend this space for any artistic endeavors!
Joy E. booked a birthday party for 50 people
We had an amazing time at Kelley's space! We hosted a wild, wild west themed 30th birthday party for ~60 people. Kelly and Glenn were both hospitable, and helped out with everything from getting the space ready, to bartending, and making all the guest feel welcomed. We used the area to have an area for food and drinks, one for pictures (we were able to try on the vintage clothes at the shop), and to play cards & socialize the main part of the store. There was something for everyone! This is the perfect space to use if your guests want a unique experience. And the team there is flexible and helpful. Hoping to use this for another event in the future. Thanks, Kelley and team!
Francine Z. booked a production for 6 people
This space is amazing! Kelley was so friendly and responsive. I rented the space for a fashion photoshoot inspired by Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums. The stylist and I used the images for our final portfolios in our BFA programs. We got great feedback and the photos turned out even better than I could have hoped for!
Chelsea G. booked an event for 40 people
We had a team event of about 40 people at Carousel. We catered food and had music. Kelly was extremely helpful. I would recommend this space to anyone looking to hold an event in a unique space. Providing a bartender in a bar at the back was also a very nice touch. I would most definitely host another event here. 10/10
