If it’s important, it’s happening here.

For more than 100 years, San Francisco’s most important events have taken place at the Julia Morgan Ballroom. Presidential speeches. Shareholders’ meetings. Product launches. Celebrity birthday parties. History-making fundraising galas. We’ve seen and done it all, and we’re ready to help you make history with your next corporate event.

Every event in the Julia Morgan Ballroom is a fully customized experience tailored to your group’s specific needs. Unlike hotels and other special event spaces, our fully-verticalized model allows us to ensure the quality of every element of the guest experience. Expert meeting planners, destination management companies and individual event coordinators alike will find our professional staff to be knowledgeable, creative and fully committed to making your event a success.

The Ballroom’s 4,300 square feet of unobstructed event space and legendary design details provide the ultimate backdrop for your personal vision. Situated in the heart of San Francisco’s bustling Financial District, we are also among the most strategically located venues in the City, just a short walk from numerous modes of public transportation with the iconic California Street Cable Cars running right past our front door. With ample public parking and valet services readily available, your guests will find getting in and getting out to be simple, painless and worry free. Looking for a nightcap or dinner after a day program? Some of the City’s finest restaurants and bars are within a few steps.
