Above the bar is a wood-lined loft space w/ skylight for lounging and watching the party below! Food and drinks are bring-your-own, but we can put together a customized drink package and provide all beer, wine, cocktails, and ice for an additional fee if you would like. Please read all rules carefully: A damage deposit in the form of a check or credit card authorization in the amount of $300 is to be provided in person at the start of each booking. Provided there are no damages to the space, this deposit will be returned at the end of the booking. Event rentals include both our entire store and the speakeasy bar. In order to prevent damage we clear the store of small breakables and provide plenty of coasters and napkins on furniture in order to further prevent damage. During events an employee of the space will be on-site to do any further damage control, gather used glassware, and restock as needed. If any irreparable damage is done to furniture or items due to negligence or rowdy behavior these costs of damage will be deducted from deposit. Alcohol and food are to be provided by renter and is to be served in the bar room. Drinks and food can be consumed throughout the store as long as guests are effectively using coasters, napkins, and trays provided. It is up to Carousel SF staff's judgement in determining this. ALCOHOL RULES: 1) There is to be NO SELLING OF ALCOHOL whatsoever without the proper special event permit, which can be obtained here for a minimal fee: http://www.abc.ca.gov/forms/pdfspc.html 2) Bartender will ID guests who appear to be under 30, with absolutely NO serving of alcohol to minors. 2) A maximum of 2 signature cocktails can be served with up to 3 ingredients, in addition to beer and wine, to avoid backup at the bar and to keep things moving smoothly. 3) Use of our bartender is non-negotiable as he/she is also responsible for keeping an eye on the backroom, safety of guests, and to prevent any damage to the space. It is also up to the bartender's discretion to cut off or escort out any overly drunk or rowdy guests in order to prevent damage to the space. Store and bar room are wheelchair accessible, restroom is not and has 5 steps leading up to it. Store is constantly changing, so any in-store vignettes seen before event might be different by the time of the actual event, but we always have several fun, vintage themed set ups to enjoy during your event. Generally, our space is available to be rented OUTSIDE of our open business hours (see below), but if you would like to rent the store during our open hours listed below there will be an ADDITIONAL FEE of $100/hour to close the store for use.
