Looking to rent kitchen for bachelor party

Putting together a bachelor party in the Bay Area in August and wanted to rent out a kitchen to host an Iron Chef style contest. Sur la Table does it in certain locations but not the San Francisco locations. Can anybody recommend places to inquire that would possibly host such an event.

  1. One season of Top Chef was filmed at Paulding & Co. in Emeryville.

    1. I went to an event at Cookhouse (, and was very impressed with the space. We didn't cook, but there is a good size kitchen. Depending on how many people are cooking, it could work.

      1. Both look like great options. Thank You.

        1. Sounds like great fun! A group of friends and I tried something similar -- only it was during a camping trip. Split into 2 teams, crazy action around 2 picnic tables, 2 camping ranges, and "2" many cooks! Didn't need to worry too much about cleanup. Also it was a fun challenge fighting the additional element of environment (it happened to be a windy day).
