The Masonic received a multi-million dollar renovation that has transformed the historic venue into an event space unlike any other of its size in the Bay Area, and celebrated recently with a Grand Reopening catered by Global Gourmet – the Masonic’s exclusive catering services provider.
With significant upgrades and updates, the new Masonic is a prime venue for corporate events, meetings, banquets, receptions, and, of course, concerts. Located in one of San Francisco’s premier neighborhoods — the illustrious Nob Hill, with awe-inspiring views of historic San Francisco – the Masonic is next door to some of the Bay Area’s greatest hotels and restaurants and has been a part of the city’s culture for more than 50 years.
The change from a fixed seat venue to a flexible, mutli-tiered event space makes the Masonic a perfect option for a wide variety of private and corporate events:
Grand Lobby: The pillared porch welcomes you into its beautiful marble and terrazzo Grand Lobby with awe-inspiring views of San Francisco and neighboring Grace Cathedral. Featuring a 60-foot-high endo-mosaic window by renowned artist Emile Norman, the space is ideal for cocktail receptions along with seated lunches and dinners.
Auditorium: With excellent acoustics and an intimate seating arrangement, the Auditorium is an exceptional option for new product launches, shareholder meetings, graduations, concerts and lectures. The tiered open floor plan provides event flexibility of numerous configurations for 100 to 3,300. The Auditorium offers concert-hall quality equipment with dual sound systems and an extensive array of lighting and audiovisual equipment.
Exhibition Hall: The 16,500-square-foot Exhibition Hall plays host to trade shows, banquets and receptions and can be used in conjunction with the Auditorium or for a stand-alone event. The hall also includes air walls for five breakout rooms, which can be used for breakout sessions of 20–80 seated theater style.
California Room: Features bay windows with views of Huntington Park and the San Francisco Bay — perfect for receptions, small meetings, breakout rooms, lectures and small concerts.
