Below you can find the key information to help you plan a successful reception here at the Parish House.


We welcome most musical instruments and bands as long as they are cleared with the Event Manager. Amplification is permitted with limitation.  You may use our stereo system for playing CDs or for connecting a digital music player, like an iPod (please supply connector cable). Dancing beyond the traditional dances with family is not appropriate for this setting.

Alcoholic Beverages

Alcoholic beverages that can be served are beer, wine and champagne. Bottles must be disposed of properly, absolutely no kegs. Please supply only moderate amounts of alcoholic beverages. We do not allow hard liquor to be served.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is spacious and equipped with two ovens (ten burners,) two sinks, a microwave, and two coffee percolators (35 cup). The oven will not accommodate commercial size pans. Recycling and composting are mandatory in the city of San Francisco and the appropriate waste receptacles are provided for guests and caterers. Trash must be separated into the appropriate cans by caterers or the contracted party, and taken outside to the appropriate bins on Washington Street. The lids must close completely; any remaining garbage must be taken off the premises. Please do not use the garbage disposal or dishwasher.

Deliveries and Pick-ups

All load in, deliveries, pick-ups, and the arrival of catering staff must be made through the side entrance, next to the office, at 3200 Washington Street. Any deliveries and pick-ups must be scheduled with our events manager. Please contact 415-346-6468 or to make the arrangements.

Parking and Transportation

Parking is not as difficult as it might appear. We routinely begin full-house weddings on time, which means that everyone found parking easily enough to make it inside on time. We suggest you advise your guests to arrive early, allowing an extra ten minutes to park. Our white zone is for your use for your wedding and your rehearsal. It is 41 ft. in length and can accommodate two regular sized cars, or one limousine.

There are also parking garages within four-five walking blocks:
