Wonderful wedding in historic setting

We just celebrated our son's wedding at the Berkeley City Club on September 30, 2023. It is a fantastic venue and we highly recommend it. The building is beautiful, and for weddings, you have the use of several rooms (virtually the entire second floor), including the ballroom, members lounge (library) and foyer. Most guests had not seen the venue and just raved about how fantastic it is. BCC did a really good job in setting up and implementing the wedding, also. When we first booked the venue, there was turnover in their lead staff, but that ended well before the wedding and we were well taken care of prior to the wedding with all the last minute planning, details, etc. that need to be worked out. BCC has a really good restaurant on site, which was helpful as the food was really good. The room looked gorgeous and service of both the food and the bar was fantastic. The grooms brought their own cake and this was nicely served as well. Other perks of getting married there include a free suite for the wedding couple the wedding night and half off the night before, reserved parking for the wedding couple and a photo shoot by the drop-dead gorgeous indoor pool (this is a Julia Morgan designed facility and it is outstanding architecturally). It is also very nice that the BCC is also a hotel. All of the grooms' families and most of the wedding party stayed there, which was not only convenient but fun as we kept running into people the day before, the day of and the day after the wedding. There is also a really good venue (Beta Lounge) two blocks away where there was a really fun after-party. And the guests (mostly from out-of-state) really enjoyed the Berkeley vibe, one block from the UC Berkeley campus and a nice student atmosphere. We have only good things to say about the venue. If you are looking for an historic and gorgeous venue in an urban area (also convenient for transportation purposes) with a great staff and service, we highly recommend the Berkeley City Club!

Amazing COVID-19 wedding experience!

My family and I had such a lovely experience with the Berkeley City Club. I decided to go through with a small wedding this August despite all the limitations of Covid-19. The BCC events coordinator, Heather, really pulled out all the stops to make it a special day for us out on their terrace. Delicious food and drinks were served in a safe and thoughtful way. My guests were able to sit outside with the right amount of distance between us but an atmosphere that brought us together. We even got to dance! Thanks to BCC for making it happen.

Everything at the Berkeley City Club is amazing.

Madison was our coordinator leading up the wedding, and was clear and prompt in all of her communications. The venue itself is so classic; we brought in minimal decorations, since the venue itself is so beautiful. Our dinner was fantastic, and the kitchen was extremely accommodating with dietary restrictions.

And the staff is so so so friendly. I can鈥檛 stress this enough. During our wedding, we all felt that everyone there was also having a good time along with us. Seeing their happiness and excitement for us really added to the event.
