Julia Morgan Ballroom (http://juliamorganballroom.com)

Julia Morgan (the brilliant architect who, among other things, designed Hearst Castle), was cool. The Beaux-Arts Ballroom she designed at the Merchants Exchange in SF’s Financial District is very cool. The ballroom itself offers more than 4,300 square feet of unobstructed exhibit and event space, and its five accompanying breakout rooms, bar and lounge make the venue flexible enough to handle a variety of events.
