About Donworth Event Center

Donworth Hall is a beautiful Event Facility located in the heart of the Lakeside District in San Francisco, California. Pricing varies but we do offer non-profit discounts and free set-up time for first time clients. Cleaning is required for all events. We charge $375.00 to have both the hall and kitchen professionally cleaned. Insurance is required for all events. The price varies based on liquor and or attendance. Generally, it ranges from $150.00 to $325.00. Security is required at all events. The price varies based on liquor and attendance. For every 150 guests a guard is required and two if the guest capacity falls between 150 -200: $300 - $600. Facility Manager is required for all events. The price is $250.00. They oversee the logistics of the building and make sure all building guidelines are adhered to. Audio Equipment isn't required but you can rent if you would like. It's a basic package that includes WIFI, mic, wireless mic, projector and a pull-down screen ($50.00 to $200.00). A $2,000.00 damage deposit and $500.00 smoking deposit is required before all events. We asked this in the form of two checks and hold it in your file. If the hall is in the same condition at the end of the night, then checks will be ripped up or mailed back. Tables and chairs and the set-up for both the tables and chairs are included in an hourly rental and or package. Currently, we seat for 200. The serving and consumption of liquor is allowed at an event, but a certified or licensed bartender must oversee and serve in the bar the entire time your bar is open at your event. There is no self-service of any kind, even if you are the one hosting your event. The bartender is the only one allowed to serve liquor and must check ID upon serving. We have a full list of vendors that you may use if you are interested but we are ok with an event brining in their own outside catering and said vendors. What we do require is a list of all your vendors at least 30 days prior to your event so we can contact them and send over our vendor guidelines. The hall offers a full catered kitchen, stage, a separate bar, modern and spacious bathrooms, a break-off room, and a separate patio. There are school basketball courts in front of the hall that vendors may drive on and off, up to one hour before the event starts. We allow up to 3 vendor cars to park off to the side on the basketball courts. There is no additional parking offered on the basketball courts. All vehicles that fail to comply will be towed at the owner's expense. The basketball courts are closed to event guests and may only be used when entering or exiting. Failure to comply to these rules may result in the loss of event deposit. For more information, please contact Donworth Hall.

Birthday Party, January 14, 2023 - An Eventective User from San Francisco, CA

My experience at the Donworth Event Center was excellent. I must give the credit to Shay Inglefinger, Event & Marketing Director, as she was the one who made it happen. She worked very close with me and made sure I was very clear about the contract. We went over it thoroughly and initialed it on the night of the event, acknowledging that I understood my responsibilities as the renter. There was a security guard assigned to the event who was also very helpful and very accommodating. The event hall and other areas such as bathrooms, bar area, kitchen and other spaces were very clean. We appreciated that and focused on leaving it in a like manner. We also had a D.J. and the stage was set up very well for his people. We were given a special entrance temporarily to use for the Caterers, D.J. and Bartender as they had to load and unload their paraphernalia, i.e., food, musical equipment, liquor to stock the bar, decorations, etc. It worked out perfect for them. Plenty of parking available so that was not a problem. My guests were very appreciative and have talked about renting the hall for other events and some church functions. Thank you Shay for assisting me in the renting of the Donworth Event Center.
