The SFJAZZ Center is a music venue in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco, California, that opened in January 2013. It is considered the "first free-standing building in America built for jazz performance and education."[1][2][3]

The building was designed by Mark Cavagnero Associates, and cost $64 million to complete.[4] The performance space is the Robert N. Miner Auditorium, with a sound system by Meyer Sound Laboratories.[5][6][7] The Center's official interior art is by Mark Ulriksen,[8] with additional murals by Sandow Birk and Elyse Pignolet.[9] It is home to SFJAZZ, a jazz music organization established in 1983. SFJAZZ has, since 1983, produced the San Francisco Jazz Festival, and since 2004, the SFJAZZ Collective.
