Peña Pachamama has been recognized as a San Francisco Legacy Business, a valuable artistic asset and 'soul of the city', a true testament to a longstanding commitment to serving the community and preserving cultural heritage. With your support, we can continue to present the best in music, dance, and cultural traditions for many more years to come. Please donate to Peña Pachamama and help us continue to be a valuable part of the city's cultural fabric.

We are working on a collaboration of indigenous, classical, and world music for this coming season~ Bridging Traditions: Uniting Indigenous Instruments and Dances with Contemporary Orchestra in Commemoration of Eddy Navia and SUKAY's 50 Years of Performances and Peña Pachamama's Legacy Business Designation. We need your support now.

Peña Pachamama is a hidden gem in the heart of San Francisco, where music and dance come together in an intimate and welcoming space. ZAGAT calls the venue 'San Francisco's favorite underground club'. Founded by professional musicians Eddy Navia and Quentin Navia, this artist-owned theater-peña is a celebration of traditional music and dance, with a focus on organic food and drink. Housed in a historic San Francisco speakeasy, many meaningful collaborations have been born within Peña Pachamama, making it a truly exceptional venue where those who come are forever transformed by the spirit of the music and dance that takes them in.

~We want to express our heartfelt gratitude for your support, which allows us to focus our energies on creative pursuits instead of being consumed by the demanding nature of the restaurant business in San Francisco. When we first started, we coped with the stress by approaching everything as a performance - the kitchen was our backstage, the food our props, and even our South American dancers became the waitstaff. Your support enables us to continue developing this unique project and realizing its full artistic potential.

“San Francisco is a city of 'it' places. And Peña Pachamama has always been one of those places in the city,” -Hon. Mayor Willie Brown, 7x7

“I just love the music, whether it’s new style or old style, the music played here is hard to find anywhere else.” -Stanlee Gatti, 7x7

“For our Mother Earth and all of us, North Beach’s Peña Pachamama: the cuisine, the music, and the atmosphere all say the same thing, love is the way.” -Dr. Will Tuttle, author The World Peace Diet

Robin Williams declared the wildly rhythmic nightspot "the kind of place even the Amish would dance.” -Catherine Bigelow, SF Chronicle

It began as a home-season concert in the late 90s, but the musicians unknowingly stumbled upon a piece of San Francisco's rich history - the iconic Speakeasy and later, the beloved Amelio's restaurant. The historic site where Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe celebrated their wedding dinner and Clark Gable romanced Carole Lombard, now serves as the inspiring backdrop for Peña Pachamama, a hub for creative individuals.

-Peña Pachamama's founders, two-time Latin Grammy nominee Eddy Navia (Savia Andina) and Quentin Navia of SUKAY, toured and performed for over 50 years bringing the music and dance of Bolivia and the Andes mountains throughout the world. SUKAY has appears on hundreds of the great stages across America including New York's Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall, Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheater and Vilar Center for the Arts, San Francisco's Herbst Theatre, Masonic Auditorium, Washington DC's Lisner Auditorium and Smithsonian's Baird Auditorium, Bushnell Performing Arts Center, Hartford, Banff Center Theatre, Alberta, Spivey Hall, GA, Detroit Institute for the Arts, MI, Arizona's Roy Disney Center for the Performing Arts and Centennial Hall, Jack Singer Concert Hall in Calgary, Wilder Hall at Oberlin College, OH, Live Oak Theatre, Austin, Annenberg Center for Performing Arts, PA, Scottsdale Center for the Arts, AZ, Chautauqua Institution Amphitheater, NY, Obert C.Tanner Amphitheater, Zion National Park, UT and the Colisée in Quebec City (opening for Peter Gabriel and Genesis). The group also appeared at major festivals in Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg and Toronto, at Pete Seeger's Clearwater Festival and countless other venues.

  • I only discovered Pena 3 years ago, have been there many times since for the food, the atmosphere, and (of course) the music and dancing. I look forward to being with you all again "once this is over." Bless you all for the joy you give.

  • Miss you and your beautiful place in San Francisco. Belated birthday present as I battle my email and listen to a concert going on at Old First, which Keith and I used to do frequently in SF. Hope to be able to visit when the pandemic is over.
