Dear Wedding Couple,

Congratulations! Welcome to the University Club of San Francisco. Planning a wedding is so exciting and we will make it so easy for you.

The University Club is located on Nob Hill, San Francisco’s most prestigious address. This private club is one of the oldest in the city and 2015 marks its 125th Anniversary.

You are cordially invited to take the first step in making your own history as you begin your new life together – and the University Club is the perfect beginning!

Dance the night away against a breathtaking view of sparkling city lights. Raise your glasses in the “Black Cat Bar,” while admiring memorabilia from the former San Francisco Press Club. Take a moment to relax and reflect in the Library, a gracious room with a working fireplace and over 3,000 books.

Executive Chef Gerry McCausland has been nominated for Chef of the Year by the Chef’s Association of the Pacific Coast. Chef McCausland says “he was meant to cook and it is not a job if you love to do it.”  The Club’s menus are a reflection of the chef’s passion for his craft.

Please inquire about making the University Club yours for the entire weekend! The Club has 11 traditional guestrooms and 5 suites. You and your guests can enjoy the feeling of a private home with all of the amenities of a fine hotel. We can arrange for a “morning after” brunch before your guests depart – or box lunches with a personal note included.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family& friends to the University Club of San Francisco!

We can't begin to express how amazing The University Club was! Our wedding turned out beautiful and our guests continue to rave about how excellent and majestic the venue was! The unique layout and the beautiful view really captured our guests' hearts. The service was EXCELLENT. Everyone was so warm and friendly and truly wanted to take care of us and our special day. The quality of the food was some of the best food we have ever eaten and they were great to accommodate any requests that we had. The surprise was also when we got our bill and saw how AFFORDABLE everything was. We plan to come to University Club every year to celebrate our anniversary. We highly recommend this place.

We would choose The University Club a thousand times over again for our wedding. The venue a gorgeous, classic San Francisco, venue with beautiful sweeping views and the staff is even better. Yvonne is a total rockstar. Everything, and I mean everything, was taken care of from planning to execution and throughout the entire night. I really can't recommend this venue, or Yvonne, more. Host your wedding or event at The University Club, you'll be so happy you did!

Having our wedding at the University Club of SF was the BEST DECISION we made!! As soon as we toured the venue, we knew it was the one. We were blown away by the elegant interior and beautiful city views. We also liked how there were several different spaces within the club that could be utilized during the wedding (library, game room, lounge, dining room) so that it felt like different portions of the evening could take place in different spaces. Upon booking the venue, Emily Mattison-Earls (director of sales and catering at the UC) was amazing to work with! She was super responsive, patient, calm, and an all around cool person to be around! Her help coordinating the logistics of our wedding day was essential and put our mind at ease. She went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding day was a rousing success and one of the best days of our lives! Her constant calm, helpful attitude and expert organization was a blessing throughout the various ups and downs over the 6 months of planning. We honestly can't thank Emily enough. She truly went above and beyond the call of duty to make our wedding at the beautiful University Club one of the most wonderful, memorable experiences of our lives! I highly doubt there is better value for cost for a wedding in SF than the University Club!

We recently got married at University Club and cannot say enough about this place!! It was hard finding a place in San Francisco that could fit all of our guests (approximately 150 people) and had the right ambiance. We lucked out that we found this place because it was perfect for us. The venue itself has a lot of old charm - lots of wood, leather chairs, beautiful greens, and old history. It also boasts a magnificent view of the city from both the 3rd and 4th floors, and our guests were able to hang out on the balcony. We loved how there were little "nooks" of space for everyone on each floor. As the bride/groom we had private time in the library, there is a pool table for guests that can also be converted to display food, and a bar area with ample seating. We worked with Emily primarily who had a team that helped her with the entire night. She was one of the main reasons we chose this venue. She was kind, attentive, responded extremely quickly to emails, and was fun to work with. We wanted a lot of details about food and she worked with us each step of the way. Food was an important part of our night and having a full kitchen and bar there was extremely important to us. She helped us design a customized menu for our guests - prime rib (reminiscent of house of prime rib with all the fixings), miso black cod, spinach salad, and a well-stocked seafood raw bar, charcuterie, cheese board, hummus/vegetables for the the cocktail hour. We also had custom drinks made from both of us. We set up our tables in 2 long aisles to so that we could achieve a family-style vibe. The servers, chef, bartenders, and other staff were awesome and so kind to us. Anything that we asked for they tried their utmost to accommodate. We felt that the staff was very professional, considerate, and down to earth. Our guests had a lovely time and we had a great time working this venue!!

We had an amazing wedding with our 100 guests – and while we’d like to think we were a big part of that success, we owe a lot of credit to the University Club. - Staff: From our initial tour to the final song, we had a dedicated coordinator there to help. Yvonne and Emily worked with us on everything from crazy planning ideas (like a hot cocoa bar - TRY IT!) to day-of logistics (even catching some mistakes that we’d made in our seating charts). They made the whole experience a breeze. Not only did they make things easy; they made it fun. - Convenience: The University Club has it all in a one-stop shop. This isn’t just a room you rent, it’s getting access to the quality staff and service of a private members’ club. Everyone from the servers to the bartenders knew the venue and how to deliver a phenomenal experience. - Catering: The food was fantastic and perfectly prepared. Their menu was extensive and allowed us to address a variety of dietary needs and still knock the socks off our guests. - Venue: Tired of the hundreds of “ambiguous winery wedding” photos in your social media feed? Not here. The University Club offered us the unique vintage look we wanted, with incredible city views to boot! Our guests are still talking about it.
The University Club of San Francisco responded with the following comments:
Thank you Amanda & Ittai for having your wedding here at the University Club! I'm so glad the food met Ittai's standards ;) You two did such an amazing job with your DIY centerpieces and I loved how all the details tied together so nicely - from the feather bouquets to the trunk full of dancing goodies, you two definitely know how to stick to a theme! I am truly honored to have been such a huge part of your wedding. - Yvonne

We had an amazing experience with the University Club of San Francisco. I had looked at many venues and no other venue could match the venue (it's beautiful), the location, the staff and the value. Our guests raved about the venue and the food. When you book this venue, you also get access to their event staff, who are willing to go the extra mile to accommodate your needs. Julia was clearly very experienced, open and accommodating to my ideas and offered valuable suggestions along the way and even recommended some great vendors that I ended up using. Both Julia and Yvonne were pros during the wedding rehearsal and the reception. A big shout out to Yvonne who was able to skillfully persuade a nap deprived three year to walk down the aisle by himself and for helping me handle an emergency dress situation late in the night. Couldn't be happier with our choice to go with the University Club of SF for our venue!

My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about the University Club and their staff. Elizabeth and her team helps us throw a wedding that was beyond our wildest dreams. When we set out to look for a venue, we wanted something with a classic, old world feel that also capured the beauty of San Francisco. The UC completely fit the bill. The space alone is gorgeous. We literally have never had better foo at a wedding either - people STILL come up to us six months later and rave about how incredible it was. Elizabeth and Julia and their events teams were ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE to work with - so professional, responsive, and calming. And believe me - the day of they did EVERYTHHING - vendor coordination, set up, etc and literally pulled everything together even better than I imagined. If you are not married and want to get married in SF, you MUST check out the UC. Will be a favorite place of ours for years and years to come!

Choosing The University Club of San Francisco for my wedding reception is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Julia, Yvonne and Elizabeth made planning our wedding such a pleasant experience from the moment we booked this venue. Our wedding was two months ago and I cannot tell you how many guests have commented on how wonderful everything was, from the food to the service. Big thank you to the chef and all of the staff at The University Club. You were all amazing! This venue is truly a hidden gem. The views are breathtaking and the ambiance is a perfect representation of vintage San Francisco. I highly recommend The University Club for any event!

My husband and I had our wedding at University Club recently. From the minute we stepped into the door, we were sold! (1) Great views - The Club is located on Nob Hill and has an unobstructed view of the Transamerica Tower and the financial district. The view, especially at night, is breathtaking and makes for some beautiful pictures! (2) Good staff - The wedding coordinator, Gail, was super helpful and answered all of my questions promptly. (Even when I sent her long emails with 10+ questions...) The wedding day itself proceeded strangely smoothly, which we attribute to Gail and the staff at University Club. (3) Convenient - The University Club has a small hotel attached to it that you can block out rooms at. Since we got married on a very popular weekend, having a building all to ourselves helped me not feel like I was just one bride in a sea of brides. (4) The food - All of our guests had very complimentary things to say about the food! We ordered a Thai style lamb chop that was so good, several of our friends devoted the cocktail hour to chasing down servers!

Everyone was asking me, "How did you find this place?" The University Club is in the ideal San Francisco location at the top of Powell St. in the historic Nob Hill District. Not only that, it is one of the more affordable locations aswell. It has a masculine, romantic feeling about it, with breathtaking views of the city. The food was delicious, and the staff was very helpful. Gail, the coordinator, is a sweetheart and really tries to put you at ease. She made everything clear and simple. This is the perfect venue for a wedding and I had the most magical time at mine.
