In November of 2013, there was a roller disco party held at the old Sacred Heart Church on Fell and Fillmore Streets in San Francisco. The place had been lying dormant for nearly 10 years when David Miles, the GodFather of Skate and his crew of roller skaters came in, cleaned up the place and transformed it into what is now the Church of 8 Wheels - San Francisco Roller Disco!!!
Anyone that has ever had the pleasure to strap on some roller skates and go for a roll at the Church of 8 Wheels will tell you that this is one of San Francisco's crown jewels and coolest experiences. The Church of 8 Wheels is one of those unique happenings that expresses the essence of what makes San Francisco such a great place to live!!! It's been honored as "Best of the Bay” in San Francisco Magazine, S.F. Weekly, S.F. Bay Guardian, huge write ups in the S.F. Chronicle, The Bold Italic, Hoodline and other blogs, documentaries and websites both here and abroad!!!
The rink is like a dream come true for skaters, the neighborhood, the families and the businesses that really appreciate the business it generates for them. It lives up to the meaning of the “only in San Francisco” experience. This is truly the World’s Greatest Roller Disco!!!!!
