Warm, gracious, and attuned to local culinary and beverage trends, Oscar has joined Finn Town as its General Manager after working as assistant manager at Tres Agaves where he learned the art of providing consistently excellent hospitality while achieving operational efficiency. A Bay Area native, he grew up owning and operating a restaurant with his family and was one of Finn Town’s most popular front of the house service professionals before his recent promotion.
What the Finn?
Finn Town is a casual, inviting, uniquely San Francisco experience that is rooted in the historic Castro district. We are a friendly and warm private party event space, easily accessible via public transportation and only a 12 minutes ride from downtown. Full bar service is available and we welcome all licensed caterers and artisan food producers looking for a commissary kitchen. For individuals seeking a unique meeting or party venue, special arrangements are available.
Our name is rooted in our love and appreciation of San Francisco history. In the mid 1800’s, our present location was a place where Finnish fisherman mixed with merchants, gold miners, and dreamers looking to make the Golden Gate their very own – and it was called Finn Town. From design features (some with a literary nod) to audio visual capabilities, every element was chosen to create an ambiance where both locals and visitors alike can feel at home.
A first generation born and raised San Franciscan and long time Castro resident, Rick loves everything about his hometown city and his neighborhood–from the great views and architecture to the classic streetcars that ride in front of Finn Town to the diverse community and innovative food and drink that has made San Francisco the country’s culinary capital. Opening Finn Town is a dream come true for his family and he is committed to making the Castro the best it can be for the community.
Finn Town strives to connect with and give back to our community by supporting worthy local charities such as REAF (Richmond Ermet AIDS Foundation), Shanti and Dining Out for Life; as well as important organizations that benefit our city including the Gay Kickball League, Castro Merchants Association, Golden Gate Restaurant Association and San Francisco Travel Association.
