4. A swanky bar and lounge

This venue is not only fun and lively — it also has a rich history! This property was built in the late 1800s as a single-story brick building, making it one of the oldest developed parcels in the City. After the 1906 earthquake, the property was rebuilt as the Hotel Rondel. It then operated as a hotel and brothel until The Great Depression, when it was shuttered.

In 1976 the hotel was operated as the Sincere Hotel when a fire hit the upper two floors. Instead of rebuilding— the structure became the bar you can rent out today!  There are still bits of char at the top of the steps left in place for history, and now, you can rent out the space to make this bar part of your own personal history as well!

The space features a photo booth, seating for 40, a flexible layout (with moving tables), and a sound system. Ready to book this historic piece of San Francisco and leave your own personal story imprinted on it as well? Head over to Peerspace and get to booking!
