The building is a stunning representation of mid-century architecture. Designed by Albert Roller and opened in 1958.

First concert at The Masonic was Erasure. Great venue, good seats no matter what. Lots of choices for beverages and easy access from anywhere in town. Will definitely keep an eye out for more shows

Haven’t been to the Masonic in many years. What a great job they did in its renovation. The seats could be a bit more spacious but the venu for music is terrific. I’m sure great attention was paid to the acoustics as the sound (...More

Paid $200 to see Van Morrison last night. An obviously drunk guest had a seat near us. During the concert she was on her feet dancing drunkenly, falling into people, yelling and flipping off the patrons in our seating area. On my first trip to...More

My first time back at the Masonic Auditorium since the remodel. They did a pretty good job changing the stage configuration and adding more vending. The only negative is the bathroom situation. They need more. The sound was good and the staff was very nice....More

Been to several concerts here. Great VIP lounge, great food and VIP service is amazing. General admission concerts, the floor is limited so there is room to move and breathe. The new sound system is top notch, great view from every seat. Beautiful building...

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that

Hi, When I went last month to see a concert, the artist, as with most artists these days, will usually promote their music and CD's. After the concert, in the lobby, you'll see the artist.
