    What a wonderful team to work with! I couldn't have asked for a better venue and caterer to work with for the big day. Joy is absolutely wonderful to work with, and she and her team were very accommodating of our friend's homemade cake, us coming in the day before to decorate and even helping out, and our budget restraints. The food was so amazing I'm still craving the dishes; guests said this was the best wedding food they've ever had before. While it was a little pricier than other caterers, the service and quality of food and the team made it worth it in the end.

    Our only slight concern before the day was the size and layout of the venue, as some family members thought it was a little small and dark for a wedding reception. Turns out these were no concerns in the end as it was plenty bright for our afternoon reception and had plenty of room to accommodate 90 people. It turned out beautifully in photos too.

    Overall an incredible team to work with, and the view of the ocean will make your day a beautiful one. Can't recommend highly enough.

    Even if the Bach weren't a longtime institution in Half Moon Bay and the coastside, it would be an ideal venue for weddings and events. The beachfront property provides magnificent scenery for photography. Viewed from below or the upper deck of the Bach, the stunning views include romantic sunsets, and even occasional whale watching, a visual treat for attendees, adding that "something special" to an event. The Bach Dynamite and Dancing Society's rich tradition of world renowned jazz has proven a perfect place for live music and entertainment, as well. What is best of all is that everything is in one place- you have the ocean for backdrops, a balcony and tables for guests, a bar, and a stage for speeches, music, etc.
