Zen Compound develops, owns & operates the acclaimed Temple Nightclub & Event Venue, ECO-SYSTM Coworking, Mirus Art Gallery, and Hive Coffee Bar, located at 540 Howard Street in the heart of the SOMA district of San Francisco.

The Zen Compound is an entertainment and business complex, with its finger on society's pulse, and designed to go well beyond a traditional nightclub, art gallery, coworking space and restaurant. More than a place for people to unwind and stimulate their senses, the Zen Compound is an all-inclusive 24/7 lifestyle ecosystem.
Hive Coffee Bar is a one-of-a-kind Cafe serving unique breakfast, lunch and happy hour eats. This is combined with an extensive coffee program serving Counter Culture Coffee with baristas that have the highest level of training in the industry. In addition, our signature cocktails blend both savory and sweet flavors with infused alcohols, for a delicious and refreshing beverage, with a twist.


We prepare our food with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Our breakfast toasts are delicately assembled on house-made focaccia and brioche. Our rice bowls are filled to the brim with mouth watering meats, perfectly cooked produce and sauces made from scratch over multigrain rice. Between the best breakfast burritos in town, an acaĆ­ bowl unlike any you've tried before, delicious salads and terrifyingly good sliders, we guarantee you won't leave hungry.


We proudly serve Counter Culture Coffee and Samovar Tea. For espresso we use the fruity, syrupy and full-bodied Hologram roast with notes of milk chocolate. To keep things fresh we have a rotating single origin coffee on drip. Currently our favorite is the Kabeywa Natural Sundried from Uganda: a rich, hearty coffee with notes of cola, dark chocolate and cherry. If you're craving tea, we have a wide selection of black, green and herbal teas as well as the decadent Maiden's Ecstasy Puerh with notes of bittersweet chocolate, espresso and turned earth.

Beer and Wine

Microbrews from local bay area breweries, exquisite California Wine and kombucha on tap! Try our rotating, seasonal Drake's I.P.A., our powerhouse Claret with a smooth, velvety finish or our pinot sage flavored kombucha from Marin Kombucha, literally the best in the bay. Now you can jive with Hive at five for our happy hour: Monday through Friday from 5 pm to 7 pm.


Try our carefully crafted cocktails with house made alcohol infusions, our unique twists on classic cocktails, or our morning coffee treats such as the Brown Sugar made with cold brew, cognac, coconut milk, XO Cafe, and Frangelico, our tropical Brunch Punch with fruit infused rum or one of our two original bloody mary recipes with vegetable infused vodka: Spicy Rojo with five chiles or Green Mary with wasabi and tomatillos. Start your morning right: eat, drink, and b. mary!
