low-cost event space with bar for memorial get together

fourstar Nov 24, 2008 06:46 PM

I am looking for a low to no cost space with a bar that would host a group of friends and kids coming from a memorial service at the Presidio Chapel this Saturday from 5-8 PM. Or, a low cost place that would allow a cash bar hosted by friends of the deceased. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Yikes ... Saturday, moving into prime time hours.

    How many people?

    If it wasn't Saturday night, Fiddler's Green in North Beach has an upstairs area with a bar and dance floor that they let people have for free ...first come, first serve. During the day they are kid-friendly ... however on a Sat night they are NOT. Still you could call. The have DJ's on the weekend upstairs and it is supposed to be quite the scene. However, that doesn't start till 9:30 pm, so maybe something could be worked out.

      Thanks! you are a doll - that would be perfect and maybe we can make it a little earlier too...not sure of the numbers yet, but thinking about 60?

      You might want to give the Thirsty Bear a call -- they have a room upstairs with a few pool tables that would fit 60 people. Nice tapas, too.
