Listen, I'm the type of person who is cynical and can find the worst in anything - and wedding halls are easy targets because so much can go awry, as you may have discovered in your recent research. But with Napredak Hall I am completely disarmed. In fact, using this hall for my wedding (6/14/14) showed me how professional and hospitable a venue can be!! All credit goes to the AMAZINGGGGGGG Missy and the ever-helpful Jose who both cater to the needs of the bride and groom.Sent on 07/08/2014
Missy (Hall Manager) -
Where do I start? She knows the grounds inside and out, is professional in every way, speaks Spanish fluently, is SUPER prompt with receipts of payment so you know where you're at financially, and is transparent about all fees and charges from the get-go.
Cost and Usage of the Hall -
All day (7am - 12am) came to $3,500 which, if you've been looking in the bay area very long, is extremely reasonable! DID I MENTION WE HAD USE OF THE HALL ALL DAY! No stupid 4-hour time window, no moronic charges for bringing in our own catering like most other venues do. (A place I looked at wanted $2,000 MORE than Napredak and for only 4 hours to include setup+tear down!) They also charge $5 more per person if we brought in our own catering! WHAAAT are they smoking? Cause it must be high grade!
In a Nutshell -
Indoor stage, outdoor seating, FREE tables and chair setup, on-site kitchen, no penalty fees for outside catering, all-day use, knowledgeable staff, large parking lot, shaded outdoor seating, wedding arch available, projector, nice bathrooms, well-kept grounds, affordable rental fee, onsite caterer (Customized Catering) is world class!!

I searched throughout the San Jose area for a venue that could accommodate a large wedding and we would also be able to have both the ceremony and reception at one location. Since I didn't live in the area most of my communication was by phone and email. I had several questions to start with for each location we found. Missy at Napredak was the only one that answered all of my questions in detail. All the other locations provided me with only a couple short answers and then told me to come in to get more details. I also had a very quick response back anytime I had a question unlike the other locations. So this is one of the many reasons I chose Napredak.Sent on 06/03/2014
The hall has a beautiful outdoor area that can be used for a ceremony and or BBQ. Inside the hall it is very clean and well kept (not super updated but still appears nice). We had nothing but great experiences working with everyone who was a part of the management of the hall. Our wedding was fantastic and everyone is still complementing us how nice it was.
We had chose to host some alchohol for the event so we used the security guards provided by the hall and they were all very polite and professional. The bartender also was extremely polite and professional. There were no hidden prices for anything as Missy made sure to inform us of what was required as well as the contract also had everything written for our reference. The prices were also very reasonable in my opinion.
Overall I am very happy with our choice of using Napredak and I would recommend it to anyone.
