We warmly invite you to Little Boxes! We have been referred to as a ‘Renegade Theater’ and told we are ‘Old San Francisco’. Often guests compare us to their favorite Brooklyn or Berlin style Art lofts. We are a ‘living room’ style artistic community space; we are your home away from home. We aim to make you to feel comfortable here exploring creative expressions and expanding the limitless visions of your imagination & reality.



1661 Tennessee Street, Suite #2s, San Francisco, CA, 94107.

This unique hidden gem is located in San Francisco’s newest up & coming artistic industrial neighborhood Dogpatch.
