Acclaimed San Franciscans, if you are looking to attend the social event of the season, then gather your finest Regency-inspired ensemble and prepare to surround yourself in the dreamlike world of Shondaland’s Bridgerton at The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience. Guests will be immersed in the year 1813 with a chance to interact with Queen Charlotte, explore set recreations, such as the sought-after Modiste, and take in beautiful performances throughout the enchanting evening.
This mesmerizing ball recently closed in Los Angeles and Chicago, and then swept through other cities like D.C. and Montreal, taking guests into the world of the popular series, and now guests of the San Francisco experience can expect an all-out production. Esteemed attendees, you will barely recognize SVN West, a Non Plus Ultra Venue (10 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94103) in the SoMa neighborhood.
The legendary 100,000 square foot venue is at South Van Ness Avenue and Market Street and was a major attraction in the 1920s, formerly the Fillmore West and Carousel Ballroom. In the late 60s and early 70s, it hosted musical icons such as Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, and Aretha Franklin. The venue underwent an unrecognizable transformation of Regency-era splendor, from the Wisteria tunnel, ideal for a promenade and photo-ops, to the electrifying ballroom where you can practice your best 19th-century dance moves under an intricate flower-laden chandelier.Get your tickets for the social event of the season here!
