For decades, the Merchants Exchange Club – an elegantly appointed private club in the lower levels of the eponymous Merchants Exchange building – was a meeting place for highest stratum of San Francisco’s booming Financial District. Over time, the club – like so many of its once opulent contemporaries – fell into disrepair and disrepute. The lights went out on the club for good in 1997.
In 2013, the Merchants Exchange Club has been reborn as San Francisco’s hottest new special event venue. Backed by the proven professional staff of the Julia Morgan Ballroom, the Merchants Exchange Club is a stunning and adaptable venue, offering social, corporate and nonprofit clients a variety of space configurations and a one-of-a-kind experience.
We pride ourselves on working with our clients to meet their specific needs. We strive to accommodate any special requests, maintain absolute discretion at all times, and offer our clients the City’s most professionally produced events in truly legendary spaces. Our in-house gourmet catering team completes the experience, making events at the Merchants Exchange Club truly turn-key with a consistent standard of excellence applied to all aspects of production.
The Merchants Exchange Club consists of two primary spaces: an upper bar and lounge area highlighted by three historic murals by Jose Moya del Pino and the great hall, which occupies the lower level of the club. The lower level may also be divided, providing added flexibility for events requiring breakout space or special configurations.
