Video Tour of The Box SF Events and The Pressroom & Mercantile at The Box SF!

I have spent 24 years creating, restoring, maintaining and operating this spectacular and historic building in San Francisco. I call it TheBoxSF.com and it houses two amazing floors of Creative and Corporate Event and Private Meeting Spaces, the largest Antique Advertising and Printed Matter Store in the United States, A Iron Handpress Letterpress Shop, called The Pressroom and Mercantile at The Box SF, (that looks like an old 1850's Country Store/Museum), and a hidden Speakeasy in the Basement called "The Sipping Room"! The building is the former William Randolph Hearst Printing Plant where the San Francisco Examiner was printed for a time. It was built in 1926!

We do Weddings, Corporate Trainings, Creative Conferences, Dinners, Trade Wine Events, small Private Meetings in our 3 second floor Suites, receptions, cocktail parties and more.

We've worked with Google, Apple, Salesforce, Twitter, Charles Schwab, SMG/ Moscone Center, Airbnb, Airbnb experiences, Tech Companies, Advertising Agencies, CNN Films, Warner Bros. Entertainment, MGM, Paramount Pictures, Fox Soccer Channel LLC, The Walt Disney Company, Reflectur, Brainfood Creative Programs, , Wineries, Chefs, Celebrities including SnoopDogg, Common, adidas, Nike, Destination Management Companies, Producers and scores of non-profits!
