It’s Day Three of San Francisco’s Shelter-in-Place, and we’ve got another great takeout option for you--Modernist. Founded In 2015, Modernist is a members’ club with a mission to build an amazing life-long community in San Francisco and around the world.
On regular days (in regular times), you can unwind, savor cocktails crafted by an award-winning mixologist, sip on rare whiskies, and enjoy a masterful Japanese dining experience. Then there are those thought-provoking nights meant to push boundaries and set new frontiers. Special events that put Modernist’s creativity on display, for example, including “Winter Whiskyland,” during which, guests joined the world's most awarded single malt scotch whisky for an intimate evening to celebrate a rare, new addition to the Glenfiddich family, grand cru (accompanied by a Glenfiddich Ambassador, no less).
Modernist hosts a series of programs, featuring the world’s top artists, masters, and leaders in the Modernist community. Say, for example, a recent evening with San Francisco Prima Ballerina Yuan Yuan Tan.
And this spot has a heart. For example, Modernist recently featured nonprofit organizations led by members; from creating pathways for underrepresented local youth, to building animal sanctuaries, it was a week of learning and giving. More recently, Modernist made co-op purchases of large volume containers of hand sanitizer, as well as N95 masks, and plans to provide those items to schools, medical facilities, senior communities, nonprofits, and the like.
And once we all come back up for air, you can get into the spirit, because Modernist Social Club is available for event bookings for companies and organizations, including cocktail receptions, bespoke dinner parties and tasting experiences for 15 to 120 guests. In the meantime, Modernist offers delivery and pickup options via DoorDash and Caviar.
