Located on the main commercial street in Bernal Heights: Cortland Ave., this flexible neighborhood studio/gallery space is ideal for community events, meetings, seminars, fitness classes, workshops, pop-ups and much more! The space is designed with versatility in mind and anything can be moved around to fit your needs. The venue boasts a large open studio room with 15 ft high ceilings and large bay windows. A built-in ledge lines the perimeter of the room and acts as faux bench seating for guests to sit and mingle. We also have 24 folding chairs, 4 large folding tables, 4 small folding tables and a variety of random sized stools and benches for use at no additional charge. Additional seating is made by the large bay window sills. Past the main room, there is a small stage area for music performances, presentations, or talks. As you make your way to the back of the venue, there is a lounge room with custom built-in, orange cushioned, bench seating for guests to gather more intimately. There is a window cutout in this room so guests still feel part of the action in the main room. The room in the very back is our kitchen. We have a full size refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee machine, tea kettle, sink, cabinets and countertop. Coffee & tea is complementary. You are welcome to have food catered, or use the refrigerator to store drinks and snacks, although the space is not set up for cooking. The space has one bathroom with a large sink . The location is extremely walkable. There's several restaurants and bars on Cortland Ave. to enjoy before or after your event. We highly recommend Piqueos (Peruvian,) Vega (Italian) for dinner and Holy Water (right next door to us) for craft beer & cocktails. Bernal Heights is known for it's village-like, laid-back vibe and strong sense of community. The venue is dog friendly and we welcome well behaved, potty trained, doggy guests. Not only is the space dog friendly, it is also the home of Sarah Zemunski Photography, Fine Art Dog Portraits. Sarah's dog portraits adorn the walls and can be enjoyed by your guests. They can also be removed if needed for your event.

Baljeet S. booked a team meeting for 9 people
The space was awesome! Exactly what we needed for our meeting. We brought in dinner and held a meeting for 10 people. Sarah was super responsive and accommodating.

This studio is a _real_ option for photographers - it worked very well for my conceptual shoot! (2-hour) metered parking is easy and close to the studio. The studio is spacious in multiple ways: (1) the main room's square-footage; also - (2) a high ceiling, so lighting and modifier can go high enough and be optimal; (3) built-in steps and bay windows, which offer additional positioning for the photographer. (Tip to photographers: the built-in ledge(?) that runs along the walls of the main room is now non-white; bring white/black fabric if you would like to cover it) The owner of the space, being a photographer herself, makes sure a blackout option is available, and that the main space is kept uncluttered. She is friendly, communicative and very responsive and clear, and seeks feedback on the facility (which means it will keep getting better). Recommended highly and unhesitatingly !
