Our latest music video shoot was most recently featured in Paste Magazine: https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2017/05/cathedrals-dont-act-like-a-stranger-video.html We have 30 folding chairs and can setup miscellaneous couches and other seating options for about another 15 people. If you require additional chairs we would be happy to help you organize rentals through [email protected] • Blackout curtains • Huge windows with natural light • Industrial art gallery vibes • Plenty of plants and greenery Located around the corner from 16th and Mission BART, our art gallery warehouse loft is centrally located and at most about a 20 minute commute from anywhere in San Francisco. There is metered street parking outside. The vibe is that of an industrial loft on the second floor of a former motorcycle shop turned architecture firm. Our neighbors include the Homeless Resource Center, so the area outside of the space much like most of San Francisco has homeless people. They're friendly and harmless so safety has never been an issue in the 10 years we've been here, but we want to clearly communicate that this is a reality and to clearly set expectations. The warehouse itself is an oasis and completely safe and clean :) Other features include: • Fully functional kitchen • Dimmable lighting • Super high ceilings • 2 long slab live edge wooden tables • 3 configurable bar tables There is 1 1/2 restrooms, one on each floor. The space is located on the second floor and requires walking up a flight of stairs. There is no elevator.. There will always be an on-site manager present in case you need any assistance throughout your booking. The space is a converted motorcycle shop originally built in the late 2000's and has many original qualities still intact. It served as an event space and art gallery for the past 10 years. We are two blocks from the heart of Valencia street, 6 blocks from Dolores Park, a half block from the 16th St Mission BART, and located on a side street away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets of the Mission.

Madison Y. booked a film shoot for 20 people
This is a super fun, open, artist loft space. A lot of color, art, vibrancy. I would say one thing to be aware of is that it is a live work loft in which there are multiple roommates. For the most part the space was pretty private but with an occasional roommate coming through. It seemed that some of the roommates weren't fully aware of our rental for a film shoot. It's a great space but I'd just have an awareness of it having a feeling of only being semi-private. We appreciate their accommodating our film shoot that went long -as many shoots do - I think because it was a living space with multiple roommates, navigating OT on the shoot was much more complicated than other venues.
Jennifer B. booked an office holiday party for 60 people
WOW! What an amazing space/venue/service. We rented out this space for our company's holiday party and it was fantastic. Johnny was super responsive with all my questions and Greg was an amazing host during the event. The space is beautiful, open and perfect for music, presentations and dancing. During the event, I had half of our group ask me how they could book this space. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend booking this space! Thank you Johnny and Greg for a fantastic event.
Amy O. booked an off-site for 35 people
This was a lovely and eclectic space. The attentiveness from start to finish was five star. The highlight of the experience was the onsite support from Greg, he went above and beyond to make sure everything was just so. We will definitely book again when we return to San Francisco for our next event.
Rachel J. booked an event for 85 people
I really appreciate Johnny allowing us to use the space, it worked out really well for our event and I cannot thank him and his team enough! That being said, there are two things that I wish I had known before booking: 1. The space gets super hot in the afternoon/early evening and I wish that had been told to me earlier, it was super warm throughout the night even though we had multiple fans going. Just make sure that guests know this and dress appropriately! 2. We were allowed to move furniture but the options are limited as to where we could put things (nothing is allowed to block doors, which makes sense, but there are a fair number of doors where it is most convenient to put the larger pieces of furniture). This didn't end up being a huge issue, we were able to work things out, but it was a bit frustrating that it wasn't told to me when I was touring the space and saying where I would want to move things. I had the event all planned out beforehand and had to make some hectic last-min changes due to those restrictions. Other than those things, which didn't end up being too much of an issue, it was wonderful! The space is gorgeous at night with the soft lighting and eclectic furniture. It was also super cool that included in the rental was a doorman so all of our guests could get into the space without issue. Jason was a great host and even participated in our photo booth and face painting. I truly appreciate the Sub opening their doors to our team and would definitely recommend this space to anyone who is planning a laidback company event.
Melissa M. booked an event for 25 people
It was an amazing space! It had good flow for my Pop-Up shop and accommodated the live musicians I hired. I was able to move some furniture around to get the flow I wanted and the sound system was great. Nick helped me with setting up and was very friendly.
Lila B. booked an event for 75 people
Johnny's loft is a beautiful boho space a block from the 16th St. Bart station. The entrance is unassuming but once you go upstairs you're in a perfect casual event space. We hosted a networking happy hour and the execution was seamless. They provided a door person at the gate and helped with prep and clean up. Note that you should book your reservation to include extra time for any deliveries prior to the event as well as clean up and pack out.
Joann C. booked an off-site for 27 people
The space was amazing! It really captured the essence of SF. The design and format worked great for our off site event. Johnny was extremely responsive during the booking process and the onsite event manager was very helpful throughout the process. Overall, it was a great SF experience! I'd recommend this space for any one looking for a unique, fun and bright space.
