The Merchants Exchange Building

The Julia Morgan Ballroom at the Merchants Exchange is San Francisco’s most exclusive special event venue, an architectural masterpiece that combines a timeless Beaux-Arts interior with superior modern amenities. The ballroom’s historic significance, breathtaking details, professional production staff and strategic location make it an unparalleled space for any event. The ballroom itself offers more than 4,300 square feet of unobstructed exhibit and event space, and its five accompanying breakout rooms and bar and lounge range from 1,223 square feet to 360 square feet, making the venue flexible enough to handle multifaceted events and multiple breakout sessions.

Atop the landmark Merchants Exchange building at California and Montgomery Streets, the Julia Morgan Ballroom boasts an enviable location at the very heart of San Francisco’s vibrant Financial District. Strategically positioned amid fine hotels, notable restaurants, cultural attractions and the energy of the City’s financial nerve center, the ballroom offers event-goers the best of everything San Francisco has to offer, including numerous public transportation options and abundant evening parking.
