Room 203 is our smallest room in the rental program and offers everything you need for a successful board meeting or retreat. It’s carpeted floors, rolling padded chairs, and soft aqua/teal colored walls make for a comfortable space for long meetings. Translucent shades on the window/walls facing the lobby may be opened or closed to make the space more or less private. Room 203 also works wonderfully as a breakout room for conferences or a behind-the-scenes greenroom for event holders to stage items for a larger event in a neighboring space.

Building information:

The SF LGBT Center building is a melding of the modern and the historical. The East side of the building is the last surviving Victorian on Market street, having narrowly survived the fire from the 1906 earthquake. In 2002 the center joined together the modern neighboring building with the Victorian. In April 2017 we held our ribbon cutting ceremony after a year and half of renovations to the building, providing whole new event and meeting spaces and bringing in new local service providers to be housed within our walls. We encourage all event attendees to take advantage of our many community service programs onsite here at the center. Please see what services might relate to your event here. Our building is temperature controlled and most electricity is sourced by our rooftop solar panels.

We offer competitive rental rates and special discounts for nonprofits. Please email us at roomrentals@sfcenter.org or call 415-865-5631 if you are interested in any of our rooms.
