Icon San Francisco Venue to host a memorable event. - An Eventective User

Our event held at the Sir Francis Drake SF was extraordinary. The iconic venue on the Powel St. cable car line is magical. We hosted the cocktails on the mezzanine level and reception in the Empire Ballroom. The catering and sales team pampered the clients and tended to every detail. The dinner menu was incredible. Truly a memorable weekend from start to finish.
