Open Air Seating at the Ferry Building

For the first time ever, the Ferry Building has expanded their outdoor seating for safely-distanced, waterfront dining. All tables are separated by a minimum of 10 feet, making the Ferry Building one of the Bay Area’s largest outdoor dining venues. With the new outdoor patio, they have blurred the lines between work, play and dining. Enjoy free wi-fi, a resident DJ and all of the best bites in the Bay, just a mile from your door at Jasper.

The majority of the new seating is located along the building’s back plaza, offering sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay, Bay Bridge, and Yerba Buena Island, and more than 50 large umbrellas will make the tables usable in a variety of weather conditions. Seating has also been added to the front plazas of the Ferry Building.

Take in the tunes as a resident DJ from @BFFM sets the vibes every Tuesday-Friday from 12pm to 4pm. Working while you dine outdoors? The free public wi-fi is: Network: 1 Ferry Building Guest Wi-Fi | Password: 2020!ferry

Dedicated janitorial staff will ensure the outdoor seating areas remain clean, assisting with bussing and disinfecting tables between parties. Additional hand sanitizing stations have also been added.

Restoration News:
Hudson Pacific Properties and Allianz Real Estate are committed to ensuring the Ferry Building continues to be a vibrant, historic and critical part of the city’s fabric. They need to restore and repair parts of the building, including the façade, which have suffered the effects of natural weathering.

What’s the new hue? The color of the Ferry Building will be restored to its original gray color when it was designed by architect A.P. Brown in 1898. The building was constructed from gray-colored Colusa sandstone, a common turn-of-the-century building material that was mined in Northern California’s Colusa County and can be seen throughout downtown San Francisco buildings. Sherwin-Williams has custom blended a “Ferry Building Gray” color available for a limited time exclusively at Sherman-Williams Commercial Paint Store at 320 4th Street in San Francisco. The project is expected to take approximately two years to complete.

As more merchants prepare to reopen, The Ferry Building has even stricter safety standards and guidelines so that you can shop for your locally made goods with peace of mind.

Health & Safety Measures:

Enhanced cleaning procedures

Clearly marked queuing signage

Face coverings required for all staff and visitors

Hands-free entries where possible to minimize touch points

Optimized air filtering system and maximized use of outside air

Increased curbside pickup and delivery options

One-way lanes to streamline ingress/egress

How can you help?
Wear a face covering at all times in the building. Covering your face is now mandatory and helps prevent the spread of COVID-19. Masks, bandannas, scarves and cloth can be used.

Utilize hand sanitizing stations
