ROOM/EXHIBITS SPONSORSHIP:

Italian Cellar Speakeasy Bar

Please join in our effort to create a Speakeasy Bar members area that will be part of the Little Italy Cultural Center & Museum.  Little Italy will bring back the historic Italian Cellar (Later Manny's Cellar) Speakeasy concept that was located one block away at 175 West Saint John Street.

Italian Cellar Speakeasy Bar

Construction is underway to raise our home, reinforce our foundation and convert the basement of the Italian Cultural Center & Museum into a speakeasy members bar.  This bar will be a pre-event gathering spot for the SAP center and be a social gathering spot for Little Italy San Jose.  The Italian Cellar Bar will pay tribute to the original Italian Cellar (Manny's Cellar) bar as well as honor the pioneering Italian American Wineries in Northern California. Cost of the room is expected to be in excess of $125,000.  John and Susan Sobrato are the presenting sponsor for the Italian Cellar and this sponsorship is to honor John Sobrato's father who Immigrated from Italy when he was 16 and gained his U.S. Citizenship by enlisting  in the  United States Army during World war One and became a good cook working for the officers who suggested he go into the restaurant business after the war.  John Sobrato Sr. owned John's Rendezvous restaurant which was a well-known Italian restaurant in San Francisco's North Beach from circa 1930 to circa 1954.  A vintage bar also donated by John A. Sobrato was donated to anchor our Italian Cellar.

 

Please join in the fundraising  efforts to support the Italian Cellar and donations starting at $1000 will be honored on a Bronze Plaque.
