Z SPACE: NOT YOUR AVERAGE
REPURPOSED CAN FACTORY

Located in the heart of San Francisco’s vibrant and historic Mission District, Z Space is an unconventional and unique 13,000 square foot venue with the flexibility to suit a variety of event needs. We’ve hosted it all: Company Seminars, Weddings, Fundraisers, Corporate Parties, Dance (Modern to Ballet), Development Workshops, Film Screenings, Multi-media Installations, Launch Parties, Concerts, Operas, Staged Readings, Stand-up Comedy, Ping-Pong Tournaments, and especially Theater!

Originally constructed as a tooling factory for the American Can Company (and still under the watchful eye of its original 10-ton Cyclops Crane), Z Space has been converted into one of the most vibrant and dynamic arts centers in San Francisco, featuring a flexible 244-seat proscenium-style stage, a lobby equipped with a full bar, and a separate downstairs 85-seat black box theater.

Take a virtual, three-dimension tour of our main stage courtesy of Google Maps.

Z Space is easily accessible by BART, MUNI, car, bike, and foot. Once a hub of light industry, the neighborhood around Z Space teems with artists studios, galleries, bakeries, chocolate factories and some of SF's hottest restaurants.
