John’s Grill is happy to host private events for parties small or large. The restaurant has three different settings for private parties, all on the third level and accessible by stairs or elevator. The third level space is called Hammett’s Den, named for the mystery author who, in his San Francisco heyday, had an office in the nearby Flood Building and used to frequent John’s Grill.
