Originally founded in 1893, Schroeder's longstanding history, friendly atmosphere and convenient downtown location has made the Bavarian inspired beer hall a favorite of San Francisco residents and business professionals for the past 120 years. The original structure was destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and fire before being reopened at its current location of 240 Front Street by Henry Schroeder, who was actively involved in downtown San Francisco's reconstruction. Famous among downtown male clientele until opening its doors to females in the 1970s, Schroeder's continues to be known as a destination for drinks and dining in the Financial District. Breathing new life into the historic restaurant, new owners Andrew Chun and Jan Wiginton have revitalized and remodeled the space to include a new facade, interior detailing and communal seating, and have introduced a modern, German menu under Chef Manfred Wrembel.
Manfred Wrembel, Executive Chef
Manfred Wrembel is the Executive Chef at Schroeder's. The Californian-born son of German immigrants has lived and worked in San Francisco for more than a decade. Prior to joining Schroeder's, Manfred Wrembel served as Executive Chef at Plum under Daniel Patterson and Chef de Cuisine at Incanto under Chris Cosentino. At Schroeder's, Manfred presents an updated viewpoint on traditional German cuisine with lighter preparations and an infusion of California sensibilities.
Andrew Chun and Jan Wiginton, Managing Partners
Andrew Chun and Jan Wiginton are the Managing Partners of Schroeder's. This dynamic team entered the restaurant business with the opening of Press Club in 2008. In their previous careers, they knew and loved Schroeder's as a happy hour destination in the Financial District, and are excited to be part of the next chapter of its history.
