Stowe Lake Boathouse, San Francisco

Enjoy the most reviewed intimate music experience WORLDWIDE! Lakehouse Jazz, a unique and intimate concert experience in the iconic Golden Gate Park at a hidden and iconic boathouse. As Karl the Fog moves over the lake and covers a slew of colorful boats, we’ll sit inside our intimate and improvised concert venue where the music of the best musicians in the Bay Area and a glass of beer or wine will be the perfect way to unwind your week. By attending this event not only you’ll listen and learn jazz from some of the best musicians in The Bay Area but also, you'll be actively supporting the local art scene and its musicians. Kudos!
Every week we feature new bands. This makes each concert unique and fresh. All things Jazz! From 1920's Swing to Latin Jazz, Funk, Fusion, and original compositions. This concert series is produced by The Mellow Sessions.
About the venue
Located in the heart of SF's famous Golden Gate Park, there’s a lovely boathouse known mostly to locals. Every Friday we transform this space into a non-conventional intimate music venue. Nearby you can start off your evening by visiting the best Gold Gate Park has to offer. Our top favorites are the De Young Museum, the Japanese Garden, the Academy of Science, and of course a cruise around the Stow Lake on a paddleboat, perfect for a date!]
