One of the preeminent concert and event venues in SF. Noted as a fine example of Scottish Rite architecture, the Regency Building was built in 1909. The Ballroom is a beaux-art treasure with thirty-five foot ceilings and twenty-two turn-of-the-century teardrop chandeliers.

    Terrible sound system here - too much distortion at high volumes

    Check your coat. It's a sauna in there.

    Parking garage at the Holiday Inn on Van Ness is validated at the box office as you enter. They have a nice bar to catch a night cap and a snack before getting on the road for home.

    Great place for events like school dances and such. 3 different venues at the regency center of varying size/ price

    Great location with easy MUNI access, although I usually walk to/from Civic Center. Lots of nearby food options &/or cocktails before a show, plus a few open late enough for a midnight snack.

    Here's a tip: when the lights are down and the show's about to start DON'T take selfies with your flash!

    Gillian · November 7, 2014
  • Tristan L.

    Very bad sound. The room makes everything echoes. No way to ear the singer's lyrics

    Tristan Lorach · October 31, 2014
  • Bennett W.

    Another facility for proms and concert events

    Bennett Wong · October 27, 2014

    Cool concert hall

    Lisa Grudinkina · October 23, 2014
  • Roy S.

    Nicely sized venue with easy seating and standing room. Great acts come through here all the time. Make sure to skip the service charge by getting tickets at the Warfield box office.

    Roy Scopazzi · September 16, 2014
  • squeasel

    The third floor is really gorgeous, if you can ever find it open.

    squeasel · September 16, 2014
  • Ty W.

    Great artists of all genres and a labyrinth of stages, one of my favorite venues in SF.

    Ty Wu · August 13, 2014
  • sean s.

    Try the balcony! The views are great and you should be able to find a seat.

    sean sorrell · June 12, 2014
  • Monica W.

    Great venue! If you can get up to the balcony during a metal show it's a great area to just people watch.

    Monica Wilmot · February 21, 2014
  • Don J.

    FYI $16 for a pint of beer.

    Awesome concert house

    Mark Steven Lewis · October 29, 2013
  • Avenue Live

    For some special events, the Grand Ballroom upstairs is open to VIPs. If you can make it up there it's magical to breathe the air where The Grateful Dead, The Doors, and Jefferson Airplane once played

    The Faint was epic, especially front/center against the gate.

    Kevin Briggs · November 18, 2012
  • Aaron D.

    One of my favorite venues in the city, some really great bands come through here.

    Aaron Draczynski · October 9, 2012
  • Chris M.

    Rip your eardrums out before you come bc the sound is horrible anyhow!

    Chris Mason · August 30, 2012
  • Ray K.

    If you want to avoid the $9 surcharge per ticket, go to the box office at the Warfield Theatre on Sundays between 10a-4p. Stick it to the man!

    Ray Kang · August 15, 2012
  • max d.

    Downstairs bar has much shorter line. And food.

    max d · February 24, 2012

    Unnecessarily atrociously rude security staff.

  • polynesian m.

    Buy your tickets to the Regency at the Warfield Theater Box Office which is open on Sundays and an hour before each show. BAN CRZY ONLNE CONVNCE FEES!

    Awesome musicians perform here on a regular basis. Been here to watch Nouvelle Vague, Sia, Corinne Bailey Rae, Cocorosie, Blonde Redhead, and a few others! The balcony's decent.

    If you are going to a show... Hide your gum!!! They make you throw it away at the door and it's a huge bummer.
