Solutions for private events of under 40 people: a downtown San Francisco venue, event services, and a sharp collection of rentals.

Staffing

Event Assistants are similar to service staff / servers at private events, but can help out with more: setting up food or decor, setting the table, pouring drinks, passing hors d’oeuvres, light clean up, serving food and clearing / bussing, turning over used dishes and glassware, organizing, and packing up rentals.

Event Assistants

For events at Cookhouse

Event Assistants are similar to service staff at private events, but can help out with more than the standard: setting up food or decor, setting the table, pouring drinks, passing hors d’oeuvres, tidying, serving food and bussing, turning over used dishes and glassware, organizing, and packing up rentals. Note: we do not cook.

Event Assistants are optional. The minimum is 4 hours per EA, and EAs are $55 per hour each. An $85/hr rate applies for last-minute bookings (within 14 days in advance) and requests for senior staff. We'll only apply the higher rate when necessary or requested.

For events elsewhere in San Francisco

Our Event Assistants are also available to help with the same tasks for events in San Francisco but outside of Cookhouse.

We can help with setting up food or decor, setting the table, pouring drinks, passing hors d’oeuvres, tidying, serving food and bussing, turning over used dishes and glassware, organizing, and packing up rentals. EAs help to ensure a smooth event that's enjoyable and productive for the host or organization.

In addition, we are familiar with many local chefs and catering companies and have worked at many different event types in homes and businesses alike. Note: we do not cook.

The minimum is 4 hours per EA, and EAs are $55 per hour each. An $85/hr rate applies for last-minute bookings (within 14 days in advance) and requests for senior staff. We'll only apply the higher rate when necessary or requested.

Menus and/or placecards

We can custom menu design (send a logo or special wording if you’d like to), felt finish coverstock paper, print & cut. Usually, this takes about 1/2 hour to 1 hour for menus or placecards.

$55-$135 per hour, depending on complexity. 

A-la-carte event planning

Want to rent tablecloths, find styling props, or get favors for your guests? Need help coming up with a comfortable budget, and sticking to it? We offer in-house event planning and coordination for services not included in event packages. It’s cost-efficient: one hour or five - whatever you need, not more nor less. It’s also convenient: if you’ve already made a reservation, you don’t need a separate contract. 

$135 per hour, subject to availability.


I feel lucky to have been connected with the Cookhouse team. I work with them almost every time I have an event at my company. The event assistants I’ve worked with have been, without exception, professional, kind and thoughtful. And efficient! I get so much done together with them! They have great instincts for how to organize, run and breakdown an event, often knowing what needs to be done before being asked to do it. Thank you, Cookhouse Event Assistants!
