Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Tucked in the heart of the Castro, this historic Nordic-inspired venue is a true hidden gem, laden with charming vintage details and event spaces outfitted with every top-notch modern amenity needed for a flawless celebration.
  • Host your ceremony in Balder Hall, with its rich, Arts and Crafts design and windows overlooking Market Street. This third-floor space is rented in conjunction with Freja Hall, where you’ll find ornate woodwork, a wraparound mezzanine level, and a ceiling embellished by striking exposed wooden trusses.
  • For a uniquely, iconically San Francisco experience, consider renting Cafe du Nord, the Hall’s basement club. One of the city’s most beloved spots for live music, it boasts a cool, speakeasy vibe and is accessed by a secret interior stairwell inside the Hall. Can't decide on a space, or have an extra-long guest list? Full buyouts are available, too!
