The Grand Ballroom - this historical venue boasts over 4400 square feet of smooth hardwood floor, 26-foot ceilings, Art Deco ambiance, horseshoe-shaped balcony, and a built-in stage spanning over 40 feet.
Built in 1911 and retaining much of its original Art-Deco character, the SF Russian Center was founded in 1939 by Russian immigrants as a focal point for the preservation of their rich cultural heritage. Tradition was passionately kept alive through operas, operettas, choirs, grand balls, folk dance ensembles, and plays. Generation followed generation, and still, the goal remains to preserve and display the warmth and spirit of Russian culture.
As a non-profit cultural organization, the Russian Center annually produces many cultural activities including operas, dance concerts, folk dance classes, social gatherings, and lectures.
