Hi there! This space was custom-designed from the ground up by local artisans and artists to be a high-end event space for the Bay Area. We took everything we learned from our success at our first two locations to create this truly unforgettable event space. This brand new location, nestled conveniently in between the historic Union Square and Nob Hill neighborhoods, is truly a undiscovered gem in the San Francisco scene. The space is 1,600 square feet featuring beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows, gorgeous wood floors, gallery lighting, and open floor plan. The space has been recently renovated by hand (including my hands) and we have built in everything we can think of with the finest detail into this project. I've hosted more than two hundred special events and celebrations of all types and I'm happy to work with you to customize the space to fit your specific event needs. We have four handcrafted designer tables and there are 32 chairs available for use. The Exciting Downtown Event Venue supports local artists and features gorgeous handcrafted tables, fine art, and decor that all created by local Bay Area residents. By booking with us you enable us to keep the gallery completely free for our local creative residents to showcase and sell their amazing work. So thank you! We provide a high-end music system, wireless LED customized lighting, an HD cinema projector, a small catering room, smart locks, a high-end laptop, and most importantly, some of the best customer service and event support you will find. The A/V package comes with a dedicated A/V technician along with all the equipment (amps, microphone, and projector), included with the rental. The Exciting Downtown Event Venue is located right in the heart of downtown San Francisco and is extremely accessible via public transportation and rideshare. There are also several parking structures on the block. This space is 1.5 blocks from the famous Union Square and dozens of high-end hotels and world class shopping and restaurants. I am so excited to share this wonderful space with the Splacer network after months of hard work. I know you will love it! We'll do everything we can to make sure your event is a hit.
