About Overlook Hall

Where special events are truly special!

Originally built in 1929, Overlook Hall was designed in the manner of an Italian chapel and served for many years as the community’s Christian Science church. Eventually closed, the building underwent a complete restoration in 2010 and today is without a doubt the loveliest hillside venue in all of Avalon. The upstairs sanctuary includes almost 1,200 sq. ft. of open space with heavy beamed ceilings, original Douglas fir flooring, spacious windows, a raised stage with aft restroom, wall heaters, and a sweeping outside deck facing the Pacific. It has been certified for occupancy up to 150 people. Downstairs – formerly a Sunday school classroom – includes a private area for lounging or storage with a full-service kitchenette and extra-large bathroom. The property is fully landscaped and literally steps to Avalon’s nicest hotels, making it ideal for weddings, corporate meetings, reunions, commemorative events, art shows, and more. If you’re looking to make your special event truly special, Overlook Hall is the perfect place for you!

If you've found yourself reading reviews of Overlook Hall, it is likely you are contemplating hosting a wedding on Catalina Island. There are many venue options for your special day, as there were for ours, but Anna Dira and Overlook Hall were hands-down the BEST decision my husband and I made when planning our Great Gatsby themed wedding weekend extravaganza.
We wanted an over-the-top experience for 60 of our closest friends and family, and so we planned a trip to the Island to scout out venues, restaurants, caterers, lodging and fun activities all our guests could enjoy over a 4 day/3 night period.
However- if it were not for Anna at Overlook, my inner Bridezilla would have taken over. Anna is a true professional- her patience and grace are only matched by her ability to organize, communicate and pay attention to every detail, which for a Bride who's planning from the mainland, is VITAL.
Overlook Hall itself (now officially recognized as a historical building) is an amazing backdrop for your wedding, whatever the theme may be. Ideally sized for wedding parties of 80 or less, this two story building offers a bridal suite on the first floor (we let the groomsmen use it to get ready and set up a little "Speakeasy" and photo booth inside), and a ceremony/reception site upstairs, complete with bathroom and balcony, offering 180 degree views of the harbor and ocean. Natural light floods the venue through floor to ceiling French doors, giving us a perfect shadow silhouette as we exchanged vows with the Ocean behind us.
Anna and her team performed the perfect "flip" while guests sipped on mimosas and the Bride and Groom took pictures to commemorate the perfection of it all. When it was time to return upstairs, the result was nothing less than breathtaking- everything was exactly where it was meant to be and the scene was set for a perfectly Gatsby party.
Absolute perfection!!

A great company to work with. We highly recommend. Thank you Solace Weddings LLC

A lovely quaint location located on the island. Friendly staff and a pleasure to shoot here.

Overlook Hall is a gorgeous hidden treasure on Catalina Island. The space is open and airy and beautiful for any type of celebration. Anna, the event manager, could not be more helpful and accommodating. She answered all the questions a coordinator/planner has and even got her hands dirty. I could not be more impressed with this beautiful space and amazing employees. I would highly recommend this space to everyone i know. If you think logistics of getting married in Catalina would be difficult, you will have no worries with Anna helping. She offers great ideas and will help any way she can. I hope I get to plan more weddings at The Overlook Hall.. it's hard to find a beautiful space with great quality.
