The wildly popular Magnolia Brewery in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood has a new addition: Magnolia Hall, a 6,500-square-foot private event space
connected to the always-bustling brewery and taproom. Just a 10-minute walk from Oracle Stadium, where the Giants play, it’s perfect for a pre- or post-game function and for more formal events, too.

Magnolia Hall offers a blank space for creating events for up to 350 guests standing or 200 seated, and has its own bar, private entrance and restrooms. Full A/V connectivity includes two 55-inch monitors and an LCD projector that has a 20-foot projection span. Six food packages are available, along with planning assistance from Magnolia’s full-service team. Guests with an interest in the craft beer scene can check out cutting-edge brewing techniques involving the city’s first “coolship” (an open-top brewing vessel in which malt and grain cool and absorb elements from the atmosphere before fermentation), as well as a dozen oak foedors (specialized barrels) used to age beer in view of guests. Tours, of course, are available. Magnolia also offers an indoor beer garden space, a semiprivate Brewer’s Deck and several lounge spaces that can be reserved for groups. 
 

Make no mistake: Group business is returning to Anaheim. In a marketing campaign dubbed “Calling All Characters,” Visit Anaheim, the official destination marketing organization for the city, is spreading the news that the home of Disneyland is open and welcoming both leisure and business visitors back.   

 

Simply the best city hotel I have ever experienced, the Moxy San Diego Downtown/Gaslamp Quarter is fun and different in so many ways. You check in at the bar and the super friendly staff hands you a cocktail. What could be more welcoming than that?
