SAP is defining a new café experience, HanaHaus, where creative individuals and entrepreneurs can come together to meet, socialize, share ideas and connect with experts.  HanaHaus is a community of purpose, envisioned by SAP co-founder Hasso Plattner.  HanaHaus will build on the tradition of café culture worldwide, where a spirited and free exchange of ideas among members of a community has played a vital role in defining artistic, scientific, political and cultural life. HanaHaus will be located in the heart of Silicon Valley in downtown Palo Alto.

Our goals with HanaHaus in Palo Alto are threefold:

  • We want to connect with innovators who experiment with and create new technology products and solutions.
  • We hope to share our technology vision and advancements with innovators who come to HanaHaus.
  • We’re a resident of Palo Alto and would like to engage with the broader Palo Alto community through HanaHaus.

HanaHaus will offer reservable work and event spaces, open to all, providing unique services and facilities for creative individuals in the entrepreneurial community to come together to work, play, and learn.  In the spirit of fostering community, we’ll host regular events at HanaHaus from labs and lectures to music and comedy.  

HanaHaus is also a public café where anyone can come to enjoy world-class coffee and some of the Bay Area’s best food.  We’re pleased to announce that SAP has teamed up with Blue Bottle Coffee as our café provider.  Blue Bottle Coffee has a long-standing reputation of using the finest, most delicious, and responsibly sourced beans. With other locations in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York, and Japan, we aim to continue their tradition of only selling coffee less than 48 hours out of the roaster to deliver peak flavor.

HanaHaus in Palo Alto will be housed in the historic “New Varsity Theater” at the corner of Kipling Street on University Avenue.  Within two short months, we will open our doors to the public. We invite you to visit us and experience the excitement for yourself.  Join us, and become a part of HanaHaus. 

Until then – please visit our website,, for updates, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Thank you for your support and interest,

The SAP HanaHaus team
