We are so grateful to have hosted our wedding at Berkeley City Club last month. Berkeley City Club is an absolute gem of a venue and after searching for some time we found it to be a great deal compared to other Bay Area venues of similar capacities. The venue is special in so many ways, and it is hard to beat the convenience of guest rooms and in-house catering as well. We blocked out most of the hotel for our wedding guests -- and our friends and family loved staying here for the weekend, as did we! The in-house catering made the planning process much easier- and the food ended up being one of the highlights of our wedding!Sent on 10/03/2019
-We received so many compliments on both the food and the drinks at our wedding! When we discovered that Chef Marcon could provide us an Indian Buffet at our reception dinner- we jumped at the opportunity. We are so glad we did! Our guests could not stop talking about how delicious the food (especially the deserts!) was. BCC will work with you on your menu- which we really appreciated! We had "signature cocktails" - and the bartenders did a wonderful job! We received many compliments about the drinks.
-The events coordinator Victoria Kreckler was wonderful to work with- she is very detail oriented, patient, accommodating and responsive! She worked with us every step of the way to make sure our wedding unfolded the way we imagined. It was clear that she was invested in our wedding and she took wonderful care of us!
-The venue itself is just stunning. We had our ceremony on the terrace with about 170 people, which felt cozy but comfortable. There were so many locations to take photographs throughout the day. I was initially worried about the ballroom feeling to crowded with 18 tables, a dance floor, the bar, buffet, etc. But the room felt well-organized and spacious!
-Every staff member we encountered was incredibly kind. They really went above and beyond and both the wedding and reception went so smoothly.
All in all, we had an incredible experience with Berkeley City Club and are so glad we got married here.

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
The Julia Morgan architecture and decor is gorgeous....the catering staff - especially Sandy is one of a kind and so easy to work with!
The Berkeley City Club is one of my favorite venues- the building is historical and so beautiful and the staff is wonderful to work with!
