The experience...

You enter the doors that once safeguarded 1/3 of the nation’s wealth and the strains of J.S. Bach fill the air played by a harpsichord and a string quartet.

You stroll through the gorgeously ornate Gold Rush Era ballrooms that beckon you to explore…

Yet, your attention is swiftly drawn to a buzzing soirée.

You enter a lovely open-air courtyard enclosed on all 4 sides by large granite walls. They come alive with vivid hues and colossal wall-mapped visuals that dance in synchronicity to the pulsating electronic beats spun by the DJ as you join the burgeoning dance party.

Seamlessly the music transforms again into a breathtaking aria that suspends time, as you glance upwards at the star-filled San Francisco night sky.

Experience this one-night-only exquisite mix of DJs, classical music and immersive production that you have come to expect from Mercury Soul.
