Cafe du Nord

Cafe du Nord is at the basement level of the Swedish American Hall, with a dedicated entrance just two doors down on Market St. Cafe du Nord is an iconic San Francisco speakeasy, known for its long history as one of the best places to catch a live show in the city.

The space features a calendar of music programming in partnership with Noise Pop and is available to rent for private events ranging from corporate happy hours to intimate birthday parties and unique wedding receptions. Cafe du Nord can be rented on its own, or as part of a full building buyout with direct access from Swedish American Hall through a secret interior stairwell.
