Our location in the heart of North Beach is surrounded by a lively parklet-ed outdoor and indoor dining scene with opportunities to hear live music and poetry throughout the week including right next door to the gallery! The neighborhood is designed for strolling and people watching – enjoying a spot of caffe society, a lovely glass of wine – or spending some time in the green jewel at the center of it all, Washington Square Park.


Mark your calendar for North Beach First Friday – August 6th – when many special musical and entertainment events are sprinkled between the art venues - and make sure to Visit Live Worms Gallery!!


Everyone is welcome in the gallery – we ask that those who are unvaccinated wear masks – hand sanitizer is available and we keep doors and windows open for ventilation
