The Box SF

Event Planning , Event Space

THE BOX SF is the 3rd floor of the historic 1920s William Randolph Hearst former printing plant. The windows, high ceilings and gorgeous wood are to die for. Located in the South of Market District of San Francisco just 2 blocks West of Moscone Center at 1069 Howard Street.

THE BOX SF is home of the award-winning branding and graphic design firm Reflectur and home of Brainfood Creative Programs. This unique private meeting, meet-up, reception, conference, wine, food, retail and creative-event space has two unique rental spaces available for many types of events and has quickly become San Francisco's Social Networking center.

Our goal is to bring networkers, corporations, speakers, retailers, artists, musicians, filmmakers,
chefs, winemakers, coaches and trainers into a fresh private collaborative space where we can share, help each other grow our businesses and better network. We are excited about offering this new and exciting space, and taking the next step towards our ultimate goal downstairs of opening our gallery, nightclub, live music venue, retail store and restaurant here in this amazing historic South of Market building.

At THE BOX SF we plan to further expand our current non-profit support. We want to be able to make every event we host a connected way to support some of the amazing non-profits we already work with here in the Bay Area and beyond.

Here’s more detail on these two unique spaces:

Our unique conference room can accommodate up to 50 people for a standing reception, or can seat 18-30 at its 23-foot table made from 300 year-old antique Chinese village gate doors.

The main room can easily accommodate 150 people seated and up to 200 people standing for private events, retail events and receptions, including live music, wine tasting and food parings, fashion and film events, cheese and chocolate tasting, seminars, meetings, presentations, chef and art events, comedy nights, film events, performance and collaborative artist and retail events.

THE BOX SF is often used for business meetings, receptions, creative events, artists and networking events, speaker series, business trainings and other types of retail and product gatherings including media events. Non-profit events and artist groups are always welcome and it is a wonderful place for your next meet-up or networking event.

THE BOX SF has a retail component that offers unique artisan and hand-crafted products, one-of-a-kind objects, accessories and cool artist-designed products along with small hand-crafted wines, CDs, books, apparel, short films on DVD, gifts and antiques.

THE BOX SF is a beautifully creative alternative to typical noisy nightclubs, expensive and bland hotel spaces, and not-so-creative meeting spaces. And it’s all non-smoking.

We also have teas, sodas, juices and snacks available at our food bar on a suggested donation basis. And we have relationships with full caterers for your standing or sit down reception!

THE BOX SF offers lots of free street parking at night and metered parking during the day. The 5th and Mission Garage is just 3 blocks away and there are 2 other garages within 2 blocks of THE BOX SF. We are between 6th and 7th Street on Howard Street at the corner of Moss Street. Please check MUNI transit schedules and routes for the nearest MUNI access. We are two blocks from the Civic Center BART stop at 7th and Market.

The space is operated by Reflectur and Brainfood Creative Programs and Seminars, and can be shown during business hours of 9–6pm Monday through Friday or by appointment by emailing: Mark E. Sackett at [email protected] or by calling 415-934-6900 Ext. 24
