Baana is the project of partners, Christine Trac and Maggie Spicer. A physical and conceptual space to explore their shared interests in designing experiences that drive connections, foster collaboration and build community. Christine and Maggie create programming in a range of formats - from workshops to retail pop-ups to dinner gatherings to talks and panels - that celebrate art, design and food.

The name, baana, is Finnish slang for railway. Our space is situated at the intersection of three cable car rail lines. It’s a reference to the sights and sounds of the neighborhood and seemed fitting for a place where we hope to create many connections. Come see what we’re bringing together at 1256 Mason Street, SF.
