The Lodge
The Lodge level here at the Regency Center is a true gem. It is a dramatic crimson space and magnificent example of Gothic architecture. The Lodge features stunning thirty-five foot arched open beam ceilings with dark wood paneled walls and stained glass windows. Guests will be inspired by the astonishing thirty-one hand-painted backdrops that enhance the built-in stage and a fully-functioning 1909 Austin pipe organ. The desirability of this space is enhanced by the use of two elegant side rooms. The Lodge can seat 200 guests with a dance floor (included), 240 without, and 300 reception and/or theatre style.

Social Hall
Goldenvoice's Social Hall SF is located in the same building as The Regency Ballroom. Social Hall SF is nestled in the foundation of the historic Scottish Rites Bodies Regency Center at 1270 Sutter Street. The addition of Social Hall SF adds to Goldenvoice’s ongoing commitment to the San Francisco music scene. Since taking over operation of The Regency Ballroom and The Warfield in 2008, Goldenvoice has hosted an array of eclectic events, concerts with Kings of Leon, Patti Smith, Jim Gaffigan, Adele, Drake, Mumford and Sons to name a few, in addition to corporate and private events. Following a year-long renovation project in 2015, the intimate Social Hall SF accommodates 600 guests standing or 425 seated and hosts seated corporate events, galas, receptions, exhibitions, food & beverage festivals, and more. The renovations mark a new era for the building, which was built in 1909. Upgrades include a brand new sound system, a stage, a lighting system and a redesigned entryway. The ancillary space includes a brand new 40ft wooden bar ready to serve a variety of specialty cocktails.
