Space is suitable for private events from as little as 2 people (private music or dance class) to as much as 46 (music recital, artist reception, movie screening etc..). Space is generally shaped more or less as rectangle with one corner slightly cut which is where the entrance is. In the front part of the room (entrance/exit area) right wall is a bit closer to the center of the room then in the most of the room, reason for that are the stairs going up to units above. Once passed the stairs the room opens up to about 17 ft wide (front part is about 14ft wide). The ceiling is 14 ft high. Main room has seven crystal chandeliers. Walls are white and floors are vintage hard wood. The back of the main room is divided into two levels, creating a mezzanine or a loft, however you like to call it. Loft oversees the whole room and has one sliding window with shades. The area under the loft is connected to the main room as there are no doors, but there are some wall surfaces dividing the space and the whole loft except for the window is closed from the rest of the room. Under the hardwood floors is about 6'1" deep basement or dungeon which is the size of the main room, roughly about 800 Sqft. All spaces combined, including basement make it around 2000 Sqft of useful space. Since this is primarily a piano shop, the mezzanine and the space under is used for piano body work and as such it is available on occasion when there are no restoration projects. No chemicals are used in our restoration process and the space is healthy. In the main room there are 3 to 4 pianos at all time and one is a very precious concert grand which is why we can not allow any gatherings that would involve alcohol consumption unless it is minimal and monitored. In general, we would prefer not having to move any pianos for the event, but it is possible, however, must be done by professional piano moving company and that is something to consider as additional cost in case you plan to have a maximum occupancy gathering. Space is easy to get to and it actually has a lot of available parking for San Francisco conditions. Parking is 2 hours free on the north side of the street and metered on the south side. Few parking garages are nearby. Nearby businesses are Walgreens, OSH, Ross, Pier one imports (or something similar), Safeway, Trader Joes, all within 4-5 blocks at most. The most unique amenity of this space is it's acoustics. The space is ideal for chamber music events.
No hard liquor, and in general, advantage is always given to events that do not involve any alcohol if possible. Other than that, we are open to many different uses.
