The San Francisco Entertainment Commission regulates, promotes and enhances entertainment and nightlife in the city of San Francisco. The seven member commission has authority to accept, review and gather information to conduct hearings for entertainment-related permit applications.
The Entertainment Commission also plans and coordinates the provision of City services for major events for which there is no recognized organizer, promoter, or sponsor.
The Office of Economic and Workforce Development worked closely with the Entertainment Commission to develop NightlifeSF.org, a portal of resources to support San Francisco’s nightlife and entertainment businesses. Visit NightlifeSF.org for news about events and programs to support the growth of the nightlife industry.
