Events at Lazy Bear

We disrupt the typical fine dining model, with roots as an underground pop-up, and now with a two Michelin-starred menu. We create multi-sensory fine dining events that are one-of-a-kind experiences, culinary and otherwise. Fully immerse yourself in the quintessential San Francisco dinner party, and mingle with the passionate chefs who obsessively research and prepare products in-house for our hyper-seasonal menu.

Lazy Bear is in part a performance. Each course begins with an introduction by a chef from the entirely open kitchen. Taking center stage in the dining room, chefs plate each dish right in front of you. Don’t be shy, visit the kitchen early and often, get to know us, talk about the how and delve into the why. 

Lazy Bear is a communal dining experience encouraging you to catch up with old friends and make new ones. The fine dining dinner party experience is available for private celebrations and corporate events.

We hold two seatings a night, Tuesday through Saturday. Celebrate with us for one seating or throw one hell of a party with exclusive access for the night.

  • Second Seating Events: Reserve the 8:30pm – 11:30pm seating for your event with a semi-private booking for up to 44 guests. Let us top up your glass of Champagne as you enjoy cocktail hour with a glimpse of what’s to come in the dining room below.
