Complete with floor to ceiling windows that provide ample natural light, our 1,400 square-foot venue can accommodate up to 60 guests seated (in our mixed style seating) or 65-100 guests standing (furniture removed at an additional fee).

Our in-house sound system offers state-of-the-art acoustics thanks to our custom 9Wood suspended wood ceiling.



Food photo.jpg

We have created a menu featuring made-from-scratch dishes like braised pork shoulder, kale Parmesan sandwich, charred chive blossoms with grilled squid, and crave-worthy strawberry fried pie.  From our indulgent fried chicken sandwich to the light spring taste of our roasted squash, we developed each dish and cocktail with the thoughtfulness to use simple and approachable ingredients. Note, our menus are seasonal and subject to change.

Fitting for our venue, our food is served in a modified family-style manner with beautifully designed platters arranged in designated areas throughout our space so that your guests can enjoy an assortment of bites.



Beverage photo.jpg

We have carefully curated a beverage menu with each cocktail infused with its own unique ingredients. Our seasonal cocktails are matched with thoughtfulness to the music and events at the SFJAZZ center and are sure to delight. 

Every plate and cocktail has been thoughtfully developed to match the ambiance of SFJAZZ.
For your private event, we offer a few customizable food and beverage packages.
