Built in 1907, the Swedish American Hall is the most significant extant building associated with San Francisco’s Swedish community, and has a rich history of hosting live music concerts and public events. Designed by master architect, August Nordin, the building employs a rich palate of materials and the main Freja Hall features highly ornamental finishes and soaring truss work that rank it among the finest expressions of the Arts & Crafts style in California.

As a space for dance parties, Swedish American Hall features:

  • convenient central location on Market St. with easy public transit access
  • large main dance floor great for classes and social dancing
  • cocktail bar adjacent to the ballroom
  • state-of-the-art sound system for a fantastic music enjoyment experience
  • side room for additional classes
