The event space – from corporate events to wedding reception venue

The Royale is located in a truly one-of-a-kind 100 year old building in the historic Nob Hill neighborhood of downtown San Francisco. Our event space is a unique relic of old San Francisco and is protected by the National Historical Society. Our event space comes complete with the original mosaic tile floor from 1916, a wrap-around bar, floor-to-ceiling windows, an artistic atmosphere and live jazz entertainment.

“The walls are covered with the work of local photographers and painters. The jazz bands always draw an eclectic and friendly crowd. The crowd is young and friendly, and the bartenders are knowledgeable.”

Two unique event space options

Private event venue – rent the entire space

Seating:  70
Standing: 150

Our 1,500 square foot event space can accommodate up to 150 guests. The ideal capacity is between 75-110 guests, but our unique upstairs wrap-around mezzanine level allows for flexibility. The space features bar, booth and rearrangeable table seating as well as lots of standing and dancing space. Your party has access to the stage for live entertainment as well as the pool table. The whole space is yours for anywhere from two hours to the entire evening.

Semi-private mezzanine level

Seating:  25
Standing: 50

 The 300 square foot upstairs wrap-around mezzanine level can accommodate up to 50 guests. It provides a welcoming and intimate space for private events. The space features a combination of standing, booth as well as table and chair seating. The mezzanine overlooks the main floor's bar and live entertainment while also featuring its own window views of the bustling streets below. While your group is upstairs, the bar and space downstairs will remain open to the public. You get the best of both worlds with a private space and affordable price.
