The Chapel is a new live music venue, restaurant, and neighborhood bar located in the heart of the Mission District. The Chapel occupies an historic 1914 building that was originally built as a mortuary and has now been stunningly renovated by veteran Bay Area commercial real estate developer and restaurateur Jack Knowles. The beautiful chapel with its 40-foot high arched ceiling has been converted to a music room with mezzanine, while the rest of the building has been remodeled to hold a restaurant, neighborhood bar, and an outdoor dining patio.
Food + Beverage
The Vestry at The Chapel restaurant with full bar features a menu developed by Executive Chef Elaine Osuna. The cuisine draws from sister restaurant, À Côté’s French/Mediterranean fare, with a focus on local and seasonal ingredients. The outstanding cocktail menu was developed by Darren Crawford of Bourbon and Branch and features quality spirits and seasonal flavors from the kitchen. The wine program offers California and International wines excellently paired with the food menu by Patrick Cress.
Chapel Bar, also located onsite, is a large and friendly neighborhood bar featuring handcrafted cocktails and a wide selection of draft and bottled beer as well as delicious, accessible wines.
