JAKE Flagship Atelier + Showroom located at 619 Sansome Street.

It’s in the heart of San Francisco’s Jackson Square neighborhood, one of the few historic areas that survived the 1906 earthquake and fire (thanks to the firefighters saving a warehouse full of whiskey; we will be serving whiskey in their honor). When we found it, it was the kind of fixer-upper with more holes than floorboards…and that was before the landlord inexplicably ripped out all of the remaining flooring right before we took possession. Needless to say, we’ve all been appreciating Nate’s burly enthusiasm for power tool even more than usual.
