The remodeled Masonic is a great venue for attending concerts. Whilst the floor section seats have been removed for standing only.

My first time back at the Masonic Auditorium since the remodel. They did a pretty good job changing the stage configuration and adding more vending. The only negative is the bathroom situation. They need more. The sound was good and the staff was very nice....More

Been to several concerts here. Great VIP lounge, great food and VIP service is amazing. General admission concerts, the floor is limited so there is room to move and breathe. The new sound system is top notch, great view from every seat. Beautiful building...

As most seasoned concert goers realize, the balcony is where the best 'surround' sound is. The Masonic reminded me of being back in the art deco times. The Masonic is a small venue, so all seats will be good. A beautiful building with alcohol concessions...More

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the

those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that

Hi, When I went last month to see a concert, the artist, as with most artists these days, will usually promote their music and CD's. After the concert, in the lobby, you'll see the artist.
