Overview

This is the story of our Peña Pachamama, still open after 15 years as a magical, musical world music restaurant in the heart of San Francisco’s tourist-happy North Beach neighborhood. The story follows a path of the heart, a successful transformation of a space which used to be San Francisco’s most historic speakeasy, and then a beloved Italian eatery called Amelio’s. Clark Gable fell in love here with Carole Lombard, some while before Joe DiMaggio enjoyed his wedding dinner with Marilyn Monroe. Now comprising a restaurant, bar, and performance space, the Peña has become what the San Francisco Weekly calls “the friendliest, most inviting nightspot in the city”. A unique blend of live-food recipes, unforgettable stories and transformative metaphysics.

Meet the Author

Quentin Navia was a touring musician and founding member of SUKAY, one of the most celebrated Andean music ensembles in North America. The group performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall, Calgary Center for the Performing Arts, The Smithsonian Institution, and thousands of venues in between. With a background in graphic design, Quentin worked at WPIX TV 11 in New York City and later became an Art Director for American Conservatory Theatre under William Ball. When describing her first experience in hearing the zampoñas or panpipes being played, Quentin explains “That sound went right to the heart of me.” Quentin & her legendary husband, Eddy Navia, opened Peña Pachamama in the late ninties and it became a gathering place for West Coast artists, musicians, poets, dancers and performers.
