I was married here for my ceremony only in the Drawing Room with a guest count of 95 and had the reception at a resturant. All I can say is this venue is great for a wedding in a beautiful building with so much history. The event manager was fantastic from start to finish and very responsive and professional. I had no concerns the day of my wedding as I knew everything was taken care of. The value for this venue in the Bay Area cannot be beat!

Sandy was absolutely fabulous as our event coordinator. She is a must-have coordinator for your wedding. She made me feel relaxed about the event and I knew that everything would be taken care of in her hands. Everything turned out gorgeous. Wonderful venue.

We are extremely happy that we choose to have our wedding reception at the Berkeley City Club (BCC). The venue was just stunning and the event turned out better than we ever expected. We loved that almost the entire 2nd floor of the BCC was designated for our event. We had cocktail hour in the Member's Lounge and the Terrace, with a bar set up in both locations. Our guests were free to move in and out as they pleased. The reception was held in the Ballroom which was large enough to comfortably accommodate our 175 guests and a dance floor. We set up the buffet and another bar in the Venetian Room which worked out perfectly because it was out of the way of the dinner tables. Working with Sandy, the event coordinator at the BCC, made the entire planning process very easy for us. She was very professional and responded to our countless emails almost immediately. She was extremely organized and very detail oriented. On the day of the reception, she coordinated wonderfully with our outside vendors (florist, rentals, DJ, etc.) to make sure the setup was exactly as we had discussed. Not a single detail was left undone! We were also impressed by the other staff members at the BCC. The chef was very accommodating with some of our requests which we really appreciated. The food served at dinner was excellent. The serving staff was very professional and worked quickly to fill champagne glasses and to clear the room after dinner was over. In the end, it was a very memorable night. I would highly recommend this venue to others.

Our wedding ceremony and reception was held at the Berkeley City Club! This is a fabulous building originally designed by Julia Morgan in 1929 as the Berkeley Women's Club. It is often referred to as the Little Castle.....its grandeur is reminiscent of the Hearst Castle designed by her as well. Our wedding was held in December and the BCC was beautifully decorated for the holiday season. Each and every member of the BCC staff, from our event planner and her staff, the Chef, and the hotel staff were fantastic and helped us host the wedding of the century. The set-up and changeovers were seamless, the wedding suite was gorgeous, and the food was over the top! This is an amazing place and we feel so lucky to have found it!

The venue is absolutely beautiful! We had our ceremony on the Terrace, our cocktail hour in the member's lounge, and our reception in the ballroom. Crystal and Christina were great. Although, at first, communication was a bit sketchy,they were very flexible and involved all the way through the day of the wedding. It was a wonderful event and the food was to die for!!

I met my husband while I was working at the Berkeley City Club when I was a student. We were thrilled that they were able to accommodate us on our special Saturday in September of 2008. I cried the whole time, and it was a perfect, perfect day. The facility is absolutely beautiful, romantic and one of a kind. They even let me customize my menu and instead of wedding cake, they supplied the most delicious and appreciated ice cream sundae bar to help keep my costs down. We got married on the terrace and had our dinner and dancing in the ballroom. Our little kid guests got baby sat in the Library, and we had drinks and the buffet set up in the Venetian Room. We also took basically all of the rooms for our overnight guests, and had a brunch on Sunday there. If I could do it again and again every year, I wouldn't change a thing.

We used the Berkeley City Club for our wedding ceremony and reception. The space is unbelievably beautiful. It’s like getting married in a little castle. We had a smaller guest count, so we skipped the Ballroom and had our ceremony in the Member’s Lounge and an intimate reception in the Drawing Room. The team there was incredibly helpful and accommodating during our planning process as well. The food is also delicious! Our guests could not stop commenting about how good the food was and how beautiful the venue was. It’s an amazing location to get married in.

We held our son's wedding with 93 guests at the BCC and this venue was perfect from the planning with the help of the very professional, kind and accommodating Sarah Williams, Event Manager to the overall service, food, and coordination, hotel rooms, parking..it was all perfectly coordinated in just 3 months time. It is a beautiful historical building with many choices for the ceremony, pictures, reception and rooms for lodging. My son and his wife booked without having seen the venue and I coordinated the logistics with Sarah since our son was in NY. They were blown away with how lovely everything was. The ceremony was on the terrace and the reception was in the drawing room. Pictures were done in the many little patios, garden, stairways and by the pool. Excellent prices and food.

My husband and I had been searching for months all around the Bay Area for a wedding venue. We didn't want just another country club, and we also had to keep in mind that at least half of our wedding guests would be traveling in from out of state (so, we wanted the wedding venue to be fairly easily accessible from local airports, and hopefully in an area that is a destination in-and-of-itself). We knew the Berkeley City Club was it immediately after visiting the first time. The building is unassuming from the outside, but just stunning on the inside. The architectural details are just amazing. Somehow, despite its grandeur, it's not stuffy in the least: it's warm, friendly, comfortable, and inviting. We had our ceremony on the terrace, cocktail hour in the member's lounge, and ceremony in the ballroom. Everything was perfect. Our coordinator leading up to the wedding was Sarah Williams, and she was amazing. She was on top of everything, professional, friendly--and very calm, which is amazing considering how crazy I got in the days leading up to the wedding. She answered every email I sent her within 24 hours and was just a pleasure to work with. The staff on the day-of my wedding was impeccable, and handled every request with ease. Everything was clean, everyone was friendly, and the drinks and food were out of this world. If I had to take off one star, it would be because the live ivy that had been growing on the eaves and beams on the terrace died a few weeks before the ceremony, and was removed. Without it, the terrace looked a bit stark, but it was so late in the game (and we were already a little over budget at this point), that we had trouble finding an alternative, affordable solution and ended up just letting the room stay the way it was. I wish we'd either had more time to figure something out, or that the BCC offered something in return for our disappointment. But I do understand that these things are beyond anyone's control.
