The  Merchants Exchange Building is an exclusive, historic, architectural gem located in the heart of San Francisco on the historic California Street Cable Car line and is just one block from Montgomery BART. The building was designed by Julia Morgan and Willis Polk in the Beaux Arts style of Hearst Castle and is one of the crowning achievements of Julia Morgan, arguably the most famous and impactful female architect of the 20th century.  The Merchant's Exchange Club used to be the most exclusive Men's Club in early 20th Century San Francisco- many important events and deals were made here.
