The Green Room Take a virtual tour

Host to more than 200 functions and 40,000 guests each year, The Green Room is a beautiful example of Beaux Arts architecture, known for its distinctive color, soaring ceiling and russet tiled loggia. 

It is located on the second floor the Veterans Building, in the heart of San Francisco's Civic Center.

Five 24-lamp chandeliers, a wide open floor, built-in wet bar, and floor-to-ceiling windows that lead to an outdoor loggia overlooking San Francisco City Hall, make The Green Room a beautiful and flexible event space.  Rental of The Green Room includes access to the freight elevator and exclusive use of an expansive catering staging kitchen.

The Green Room — perfect for dinners, lectures and receptions — also provides an ideal location for events held in conjunction with performances in the Herbst Theatre and War Memorial Opera House.

We welcome private parties, anniversary celebrations, wedding ceremonies and receptions during the months of July and August only. All wedding bookings must be managed by a wedding planner.

As a multi-use venue, we are unable to accommodate youth events, such as proms, dances, bar/bat mitzvahs, debuts, cotillions or quinceañeras.
