#1 Best Corporate Event Venue in San Francisco:
The Fairmont San Francisco
The Fairmont San Francisco hotel is the perfect venue for multi-day conferences including room blocks with unbeatable views and accommodations. This historic landmark sitting atop of luxurious Nob Hill is the perfect venue to wow your guests with some old-fashioned San Francisco charm. This venue is located a few minutes away from the hustle-and-bustle of Union Square and the Financial District, while still offering convenient access to both. Whether you’re considering an evening reception on the rooftop garden or a 4-day conference with multiple ballrooms and breakouts, this could be the San Francisco spot for you! Be sure to ask about the Penthouse Suite!

#2 Best Corporate Event Venue in San Francisco:
The Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay
The Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay is absolutely breathtaking. The rugged scenery of the Pacific coast line makes this venue unlike any other. Of course, you have the luxury that comes along with any Ritz Carlton property, but the location on the coast makes this property extra special. With beautiful accommodations, this property is great for multi-day corporate events that host most of their events in one location. It’s also great for evening receptions with warm cocktails and branded blankets for guests to enjoy (it does get chilly here with the ocean breeze and fog!) We loved working with our friends at EventWright on their mult-day program here.
Our Favorite Things About this Venue: Those Ocean Views, Warm Cocktails, and Bagpipes During the Sunset

You have plenty of flexibility with a few smaller breakout rooms and you can even use movie theater space as a breakout option - popcorn included!

#5 Best Corporate Event Venue in San Francisco:
Ramekins is a beautiful venue space located in charming Sonoma. It’s actually a culinary school, which means the food is divine! If you’re looking to treat your guests to a nice wine country ‘getaway,’ a quick drive out of San Francisco to Nearby Sonoma Valley opens up endless possibilities. We’re huge fans of the quaint Sonoma Square area in downtown Sonoma and Ramekins is right down the street. Offering amazing food and beautiful event space, Ramekins is one of our top Sonoma picks. We recommend taking advantage of sunny wine country weather with an outdoor reception and utilizing their indoor space for a classroom or meeting session. If you need a room block, we recommend checking out the historic Sonoma Mission Inn, like our friends at Kapow Events chose!
Our Favorite Things About this Venue: Amazing Food and Awesome Location.

The Pearl SF
The Pearl SF is a beautifully finished space in the Dogpatch district of San Francisco. It’s a blank slate that inspires glamorous finishes, just like our friends at Loaded Agenda chose to do for their fabulous Circus-themed event. Unlike most venue spaces in the Bay Area (and probably anywhere), the Pearl has multiple stories that offer unique opportunities for entertainment on each level. At the top, guests are treated to a beautiful rooftop terrace with views of the bay. The Pearl is an awesome space for event producers that want to create a one-of-a-kind event in a beautiful and newly renovated space.

Jacuzzi Vineyards is one of our other favorite venue spaces in Sonoma. We love the close proximity to San Francisco since it’s located in the Southernmost part of wine country.

Be sure to try the port tasting in a chocolate cup!
