Time seems to stand still in our little Parlor situated within the historic Chancellor Hotel Union Square. Our whimsical turn-of-the-century venue evokes old San Francisco. We’ve reimagined the ambiance of La Belle Époque that brief moment in history from 1885 to 1910. A magical era when wealthy Europeans dined at Maxim’s and frolicked at Moulin Rouge.
