About Overlook Hall

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. We prefer to keep our occupancy under 120 guests. 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!

    We had the most beautiful wedding imaginable at Overlook Hall, and it was truly a joy to work with Anna throughout the entire process of planning and carrying out this amazing day!

    I highly recommend having your wedding on Catalina Island at Overlook. It was the perfect location for our 55 guests and could definitely accommodate quite a few more comfortably while still feeling intimate. We loved being surrounded by our family members all weekend and getting to see them everywhere on the island when we walked around. There were so many fun activities that we could do before and after the wedding, too - ten of us went zip lining the day before, and several of our guests went snorkeling and parasailing over the weekend.

    Even better than the location was the incredible service and attention to detail given by Overlook Hall. Anna was extremely kind and considerate with all of her communication throughout the entire year between when we came to see the hall and had the wedding. She truly went above and beyond with every aspect of our special day, and we are so grateful to her for helping make our wedding dreams come true!

    Not only did Overlook help us with planning, let us use the hall the night before for the rehearsal dinner at a very low hourly rate, and help coordinate vendors throughout the wedding week, but Anna also took photos during the wedding and sent them to us afterward so we would be able to share memories right away rather than wait weeks for the professional photographer's photos. It was an absolutely unparalleled, incredible experience working with Overlook Hall! Thank you so much!!

    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.
