If You're Reading This, You’re in The Club

Congratulations, you’re in San Francisco. Gold Rush gateway. Birthplace of the beat movement. Counterculture HQ. Fog City technopolis. The world — past and future — crammed into 49 heart-stopping square miles. 

It's not just a city — it's a club.

It’s not for everybody, and that’s fine. Our membership is self-selecting. We like it that way.

The Holbrook House is the beating heart of the reborn San Francisco Financial District; a sophisticated throwback to a gilded era. Anchoring one of the City’s most important civic gathering spaces in the expansive Conservatory at One Sansome, the Holbrook House is an exclusive gathering place for locals and those who wish they were. The signature space features one of San Francisco’s most jaw-dropping bars and the sumptuous environmental design of Jeff Schlarb Design Studio. Need a martini? Champagne? Flip the switch. Literally.
