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.
