Having a Pop-Up in San Francisco

San Francisco is a lovely place to host Pop-Ups. With 80+ spaces available for rent in neighborhoods across the city, you can find just the space you imagined at your budget.

Since planning Pop-Ups is different in every city, here are a few things to keep in mind as you go:

Having a Pop-Up in San Francisco costs an average of $275 per hour for the venue. You can find smaller spaces (4 people or less) for closer to $175 and larger spaces (51 or more) run about $659 per hour.

Most Pop-Ups get started between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. and run 5 hours 45 minutes in length. pop up retail spaces in San Francisco tend to run slightly larger than average with 27 attendees.

You can find just about any type of space in San Francisco, but the most popular for Pop-Ups are fitness studios and galleries. We’d guess there are a few of both in the Mission District neighborhood, seeing that it’s the reigning hot-spot for pop up retail spaces.

San Francisco Peerspace hosts have welcomed 42900+ people into their pop up retail spaces with an average review of 4.9 stars across 1131 reviewers. 98% of guests said they would book again.
