Former Avalon Ballroom Loft Information:

The 31,200 square foot, two-story building was built in 1911 and is located in San Francisco's Nob Hill neighborhood. The building's second floor previously housed the Avalon Ballroom, a Bill Graham venue frequented by a number of music legends in the late sixties including Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead, the Doors and others. Prior to the filming of the series, the property was listed for lease.

"This newly renovated building is truly plug and play. Former home of the historic Avalon Ballroom, the second floor has 25' ceilings, column free space and a large kitchen area. In addition to six private offices, the mezzanine has a large conference room with excellent natural light and adjacent kitchen. The first floor has several offices along the perimeter of the floor and also enjoys its own kitchen area. Freight elevator services the First Floor and Lower Level. This building was seismically upgraded in 1997. It is in a prominent location adjacent to Van Ness with easy access to Highway 101 and all modes of public transportation." (UGL Services Lease Listing)

The first floor was renovated for the filming of the series and Katherine De Luca was the Production Designer who created the interior design of the Loft.. The building is leased to Argonaut, a full service advertising agency.
