  • I wish I could give this place 10/5 stars for the amazing service, great care, accommodating and kind staff alone... but add to that the stunning building and incredible views... it would break Wedding Wire, I would give them so many stars! We got engaged the week everything shut down. After searching for somewhere that offered a refund for Covid aka “acts of God” (I think that’s what most places call that kind of cancellation), my fiancé stumbled across this place and their prices were very reasonable, their refund policy beat the other places, the couches in the members lounge make for easy beautiful photos even WITH distancing (each group at a different chair/couch for artistic clustering), and they were really a joy to work with! In addition to Covid complications, we also had to plan for a family member who had very particular special needs and the hotel staff were beyond patient in figuring out everything and pulled it off beautifully! The chef is great and the food wa... Read more

  • My family and I had such a lovely experience with the Berkeley City Club. I decided to go through with a small wedding this August despite all the limitations of Covid-19. The BCC events coordinator, Heather, really pulled out all the stops to make it a special day for us out on their terrace. Delicious food and drinks were served in a safe and thoughtful way. My guests were able to sit outside with the right amount of distance between us but an atmosphere that brought us together. We even got to dance! Thanks to BCC for making it happen.

  • We couldn't be more grateful to the Berkeley City Club team for providing us such a beautiful venue for our ceremony and reception and helping us bring our wedding vision to life! When we first saw the venue, we immediately fell in love. The architecture and classic, romantic atmosphere matched perfectly with our vision. Victoria was incredible to work with and so flexible; ensuring every detail was exactly what we wanted and how we wanted it. The team the day of from catering, to hospitality, executed flawlessly. This venue and the team are the very best and we will be back often to visit and will be reliving our special day over and over for years to come!

  • We are so grateful to have hosted our wedding at Berkeley City Club last month. Berkeley City Club is an absolute gem of a venue and after searching for some time we found it to be a great deal compared to other Bay Area venues of similar capacities. The venue is special in so many ways, and it is hard to beat the convenience of guest rooms and in-house catering as well. We blocked out most of the hotel for our wedding guests -- and our friends and family loved staying here for the weekend, as did we! The in-house catering made the planning process much easier- and the food ended up being one of the highlights of our wedding! -We received so many compliments on both the food and the drinks at our wedding! When we discovered that Chef Marcon could provide us an Indian Buffet at our reception dinner- we jumped at the opportunity. We are so glad we did! Our guests could not stop talking about how delicious the food (especially the deserts!) was. BCC will work with you on your menu- wh... Read more

  • We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding. This place is a hidden gem and I can’t believe I had not been to a wedding here before my own. We received so many compliments on our choice and working with Ashley Patrick and her team was a pleasure. The best parts about this place that must be seen in person to fully appreciate are the many locations for gorgeous photos and how your guests will be able to be truly together for your entire event. Highly recommend!

  • 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!

  • We had our annual client event at Berkeley City Club. We were very impressed with the team - especially Sarah - from start to finish. She promptly returned our calls and emails and was patient and accommodating in addressing our questions and concerns. Our event was wonderful - the food, atmosphere, and service- thank you Sarah and her team for making it all happen.

  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Berkeley City Club this past June. While the wedding was beautiful and we loved spending the day with our friends and family, the 1.5+ year journey leading up to our wedding working with the BCC was less than smooth. The good things first: The venue is stunning. The terrace was the perfect spot for the ceremony (when you cover the side opening with curtains to block views of the parking lot and free clinic) - it allows you to have an outdoor ceremony while still being covered from the sun. The library for cocktail hour is gorgeous. The reception hall was the perfect size for a wedding of 135 with a dance floor in the middle. It was so nice to have separate spaces for each part, but all of them flowed so well into each other and made for easy transitions. There are also so many hidden gardens and spots for pictures around the club. The venue also being a hotel was a HUGE plus. Being able to celebrate all evening and then just... Read more

  • We feel lucky to have found Berkeley City Club not just because they had availability during the time we wanted to have our wedding, but because the value you get for the amount of money you're paying for a wedding is significant. For the venue rental price, we were given reservation of the entire second floor (small library room, ballroom, terrace, lobby area), a complimentary stay in the master suite on the top floor the night of the wedding, a complimentary menu tasting for 4 people, and the ability to correspond with their Wedding and Events Manager. Additionally, we appreciated the following items featured during the wedding process: -All of the food was delicious and vegan-friendly, which was important to us because many of our guests have dietary restrictions. It's worthy to note that when there wasn't a vegan option available on the regular menus, the chef offered to make special dishes to help accommodate this need. -Linens, tables, chairs, utensils, etc. were all i...

  • 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 cal... Read more

  • The venue itself: 4 stars—This venue is gorgeous. The wedding venue spaces are incredible, and I love that we had separate spaces for each part (ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception), but everything was on the same floor of the hotel. There are also so many different places throughout the hotel to take wedding party, family, and couple’s photographs. The venue also being a hotel was immensely valuable. Being able to celebrate all evening and then just take the elevator to our room was perfect. It was also very convenient for all of our out of town guests. One huge factor that we were lucky with is that there is no air conditioning in the entire hotel, including the wedding spaces. The week before our wedding, temperatures reached almost 100 degrees, and that could have been a disaster! The events management: 1 star-- This is where the venue lost a whole lot of points for me. We had three different events’ managers just in the 10 months we were working with Berkeley City Clu... Read more

    Hello Markaley, Thank you so much for the review! We are thrilled that your wedding went so smoothly, you loved the food, your guests enjoyed themselves, and we were able to create your signature cocktails for you with just same-day notice! We also understand that certain things such as team member turnover are out of our control and we do apologize for any mix-ups that occurred during that time. We're so happy that your wedding still went incredibly well and Victoria was able to go above and beyond to meet your expectations once we were fortunate enough to bring her on board. Congratulations on your big day!

  • Just got married here a couple of weeks ago in February! This was a beautiful venue, you really don't have to do much in terms of decor because it is already so gorgeous. We had a wedding of 161 guests with the ceremony on the terrace and the reception in the ballroom. My only issue with this was that it was very cold on the terrace though they say they have heaters. My nose was running during the ceremony because it was so cold! We really should have brought our own portable heaters -but they said it would be fine. Our guests were kind about it but they were cold! We thought the food was delicious and the catering staff was wonderful. They were very attentive and our guests told us it was some of the best steak they've ever had. There was some miscommunications regarding the bar during cocktail hour (we asked them not to have a tip jar out because we would tip them afterwards) and they had a jar out. We also went through 3 different event coordinators due to turn over at the BCC, ... Read more
