Weddings, Cocktail Parties, Company Retreats, and More!
_MG_5333Host your event in a magical space and support the San Francisco arts community in the process

Consider hosting your wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, cocktail party, or company event, in one of the most intimately crafted creative spaces in the city.

Nestled in San Francisco’s Mission District at the corner of 23rd and Folsom, the Red Poppy Art House carries a charm likened to an old world cafe crossed with a painters studio and living room. In addition, it is equipped with a small kitchen, quality sound equipment for live performance, a French-made Pleyel upright piano, natural light and cozy nooks. Imagine your guests surround by the works of local artists within an environment that helps time slow down. There’s a reason it has often been referred to as as a “gem” of the Mission.

Let us Provide the Music

If you are needing live music for your event, we can make the arrangements for an additional fee.

The Poppy’s artistic network is vast, with ongoing relationships with musicians whose disciplines span traditional jazz standards, opera and Western classical repertoire, Eastern European/Balkan, Latin salsa and cumbia, and more.
