CAFÉ DU NORD
The Café Du Nord is everything one loves about “old San Francisco.” Stepping down into the lush Victorian ambiance of our former speakeasy is like stepping back into time. With its forty-foot mahogany bar, low ceilings and heavy hand-carved beams, it is easy to visualize everyone having a grand ole’ time in the best of Barbary Coast traditions. You can relax knowing that our history of excellence in food, drink and entertainment is your key to an unforgettable celebration with family and friends.

The Swedish American Hall was erected in 1907 by the famed Swedish architect, Augustus Nordin, who designed more than 350 buildings in San Francisco including the famous Buena Vista Café at Fisherman’s Wharf. Our beautiful historic building is a testament to Swedish craftsmanship and design. Each of its five event rooms on three upper floors above the Café Du Nord are distinct in character and imbued in Old World charm. The Hall’s centerpiece, the Freja Ballroom, is unique and inviting with its high gabled ceiling, red skylights, heavy oak beams, ornate filigree and warm maple dance floor. The Hall’s floor plan allows for maximum flexibility to accomodate your special occassion with family and friends. Click here for more information about Swedish American Hall.
OR, BOTH VENUES!
A popular offering is the “Du Luxe” package, which is both live music venues combined. This package is ideally suited for those who want two distinct settings under one roof. It is especially ideal for private parties when you desire a more formal gathering upstairs in our Ballroom, and then want a rocking celebration with your family and friends downstairs at the Café Du Nord.

CENTRAL LOCATION AND ACCESSIBILITY. The Café Du Nord and Swedish American Hall are located in the very heart of San Francisco, on Market Street between Church and Sanchez Streets in the bustling, up-scale neighborhood known as the Upper Market District. Market is the major traffic corridor bisecting the City and as such is as easily accessible to the out-lying neighborhoods as it is to the Financial District or SOMA. The street is heavily trafficked by cabs throughout the evening and into the early morning hours. Half a block down is Church Street Station, a Muni Metro Subway Station which serves all lines. On the surface, a major, well-lit intersection crossing the 22 Fillmore and the F line.
- PARKING AND/OR VALET PARKING ARRANGEMENTS. Reserved or valet parking can be arranged for an exta fee at one of several lots in the neighborhood. Likewise, limited curbside parking is available.
