About Us

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 City is becoming more populated, and as density increases, so does sensitivity to the impacts of entertainment. The Entertainment Commission works with venues, festivals and events, and the community to mitigate those impacts through mediation, conditioning, and outreach.

The Entertainment Commission is a part of the General Services Agency and is overseen by the Office of the City Administrator.
