Cocktail party venue in San Fran?

Hey There - I'm from the East Coast. Helping to plan a cocktail party, 35 people, heavy hors d'oeuvres. We'd like to bring in our own chef/caterers, and supply the wine/spirits. Know of any great venues?

  1. so all you need is a room?

      1. There's a lovely little Victorian clubhouse at Stern Grove. My spousal unit and I got married there. There's a kitchen for the caterers, and a fireplace in the main room.

        Contact SF Parks & Rec to arrange for rental:

        1. in addition to the Stern grove recs I did attend a small wedding in GG Park on the South side (near Lincoln and close to Stanyan) at maybe the Bowling Green Lodge? or the Sharon?

          the upper floor suites at the Huntington are well-laid out and have almost fully equipped kitchens.

          if you could count on the weather/wind some of these spaces can be leased for a few hours

          I'd suggest Redwood Plaza or the 15th floor of 343 Sansome.

          1. Naked Kitchen in the Mission. It's basically just a venue but they have all the serving necessities.
