Herbst Theatre

Map & Directions 401 Van Ness
San Francisco, CA 94102


SF Weekly's Description

Heavy red-velvet curtains, sparkling gold-leaf ceiling, vibrant Beaux Arts murals - if you want classy, you'll find it here at the Herbst. A San Francisco staple for classical, jazz, and world-music performances, this theatre inside the War Veterans Memorial Building (across the street from City Hall) has history and atmosphere aplenty.

Tips from foursquare

  • Opera Tattler on 04/26/10

    Go to Herbst Theatre to hear the inimitable Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra.

  • Jolene T. on 11/15/10

    It gets crazy hot in here. Try to sit near a door or away from the middle

  • Mo G. on 01/31/12

    The balcony is the upper upper balcony. 2nd set, not the 1st.

  • Amy H. on 10/23/10

    All the stained glass windows are dedicated to the men and women who served in a particular war- see if you can find all of the windows.

  • Earl T. G. on 03/02/13

    Always a good show
