Our Story

1919 - present


Located in the heart of North Beach, our classic Mission-style building was built in 1919 by the Italian community and began its first incarnation as Garibaldi Hall. 

In the 1930’s it was a favourite ballroom for swing and jazz nights, which saw the likes of Louis Armstrong grace it’s stage.

In the 70’s the venue was host to many memorable events including appearances from Robin Williams, Blondie and other now legendary Rock Bands.

In the 80’s it was the epicenter of the San Francisco punk scene with acts like The Dead Kennedys, Iggy Pop, The Nuns, and Metallica playing to packed houses.


and Now

Continuing in the tradition of its predecessors, Broadway Studios has now been a premier San Francisco event venue for over 30 years. We have hosted corporate events, movie premieres, comedy specials, live music and theater performances. We invite you to hold your next event with us in a classic venue that has been at the epicenter of good times and live entertainment in the heart of San Francisco for over a Century!
