COVID-19 Update: Palace Games will remain temporarily closed, pursuant to the City of San Francisco’s phased re-opening plan. We look forward to reopening when we can ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff. In the meantime get your puzzle fix on the PALACESPHERE!
The Palace Games entrance is at 3362 Palace Dr (west or "back" side of the building, opposite side from the rotunda and lake). This is a set of large green doors with a Palace Games sign. Once your group has assembled, please ring the doorbell so we know to let you in!
There is a new paid parking lot behind the Palace that is accessible from Palace Drive (past our entrance to the left) or Marina Boulevard.
There is free parking in the lot at the St. Francis Yacht Club (across Marina Blvd), or parking by Crissy Fields.
We do NOT recommend parking on Palace Dr or street parking in front of the Palace. Unfortunately, these areas are targeted by smash and grab thieves.
UBER, LYFT, TAXI
If you will be dropped off, have your driver drop you off on Palace Drive in front of our door. (3362 Palace Drive.)
Enter Palace Drive from the corner of Bay and Lyon St. You will then drive on Palace Dr around the backside of the Palace towards Marina Drive, along a clockwise curve. Continue until you see the green door with the Palace Games sign. The Palace Games door will be AFTER the Theatre entrance.
PLEASE NOTE: The Palace of Fine Arts is a generally safe area, but as with many tourist spots, please do not leave any bags or valuables in plain sight in your car (or you risk a smash and grab). There will be a basket in the room for your belongings. If you have larger items, we can store them in the office if needed.
