The Masonic, San Francisco

#56 of 104 in Nightlife in San Francisco
Theater · Concert / Show
The Masonic has re-opened its doors following a multi-million dollar renovation project that spanned the spring and summer of 2014. Located at the top of San Francisco's historic Nob Hill, the Masonic's re-opening unveils a transformed space unlike any other of its size in the Bay Area.

Renovations include:

- New, tiered, open floor for both general admission and seated shows

- New concert stage and draping

- Multiple new bars and concession stands

- Upgraded house ambiance including new carpeting and flooring

- New lighting and art installations, including five Zeppelin Chandeliers in the concert hall

- Luxury VIP Boxes with wait service and private restrooms

- VIP Room for 300, with amazing views of Nob Hill, San Francisco, and the Bay

- Renovated, modern dressing rooms and catering areas

The renovation of the Masonic marks a landmark transformation for the historic San Francisco venue. With the significant upgrades and updates, and the change from a fixed seat venue to a flexible, multi-tiered venue, the uses of the Masonic become endless—general admission concerts, seated concerts, private receptions, meetings and classroom-style events, or private dinners with entertainment on stage. The new Masonic is now a prime venue for concerts and special events alike, in one of San Francisco's premier neighborhoods, next door to some of the Bay Area's greatest hotels and restaurants.

  • Big shows are held here and we have been to a few. Access is an issue as the climb up the hill is hard on foot and public transit is sketchy. You can park in the Masonic Garage, but there is always....  more »
  • Great small venue. Very accommodating. Polite helpful staff. Full bars on both levels. Offers a varied line up so you can find a show you'd like to see here. Beautiful inside and out. If you haven't been here to see a Live Nation show, you really need to come. Trust me..... you'll love it!
  • Beautiful concert hall with excellent acoustics. We went to see Sarah Brightman from the box seats. It was quite magical. Even though we were seated on last row, it still felt very close to the stage, since the concert hall isn't actually that big. With the box seats, we got food and drinks service, which was great. The staff was super helpful and made us feel more than welcomed.
