Beautiful & Classic Bay Area Venue
We feel lucky to have found Berkeley City Club not just because they had availability during the time we wanted to have our wedding, but because the value you get for the amount of money you're paying for a wedding is significant. For the venue rental price, we were given reservation of the entire second floor (small library room, ballroom, terrace, lobby area), a complimentary stay in the master suite on the top floor the night of the wedding, a complimentary menu tasting for 4 people, and the ability to correspond with their Wedding and Events Manager.Sent on 08/04/2019
Additionally, we appreciated the following items featured during the wedding process:
-All of the food was delicious and vegan-friendly, which was important to us because many of our guests have dietary restrictions. It's worthy to note that when there wasn't a vegan option available on the regular menus, the chef offered to make special dishes to help accommodate this need.
-Linens, tables, chairs, utensils, etc. were all included.
-Their events manager, Victoria Kreckler, was always professional, timely, kind, and accommodating. We felt extremely taken care of, and are grateful for her insight and help.
-We had access to the venue the day before the wedding for ceremony rehearsal.
All in all, the Berkeley City Club is a beautiful venue providing unrivaled hospitality and amenities.

We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding. This place is a hidden gem and I can’t believe I had not been to a wedding here before my own. We received so many compliments on our choice and working with Ashley Patrick and her team was a pleasure. The best parts about this place that must be seen in person to fully appreciate are the many locations for gorgeous photos and how your guests will be able to be truly together for your entire event. Highly recommend!Sent on 07/31/2018

I was married here for my ceremony only in the Drawing Room with a guest count of 95 and had the reception at a resturant. All I can say is this venue is great for a wedding in a beautiful building with so much history. The event manager was fantastic from start to finish and very responsive and professional. I had no concerns the day of my wedding as I knew everything was taken care of. The value for this venue in the Bay Area cannot be beat!Sent on 04/20/2015
