Presidio Officers' Club


This October San Francisco’s Most Historic Building Will be Reborn as the Bay Area’s Newest Cultural Destination.


Long before there was the city of San Francisco, there was the Presidio of San Francisco. First established in 1776, the adobe walls of the Officers’ Club stand testament to California’s beginnings. Throughout the 20th century, the renowned Presidio Officers’ Club was a gathering place for Army brass and their families. Today, this beloved institution has been transformed into a multi-faced cultural destination that welcomes the entire community.

The Officers’ Club features exceptional exhibits and dynamic programs inspired by the Presidio’s role in shaping California and serving the nation. Cultural events including live music and dance, talks, films, and family activities encourage deep connections. Educational offerings from hands-on student field trips to live archaeology digs make exploration engaging for all.
 The Officers’ Club is also a wonderful place to gather, featuring Arguello, a destination restaurant by award-winning chef Traci Des Jardins, as well as the Ortega Ballroom and the Hardie Courtyard, spectacular spaces for celebrations and meetings.
