We love all of the simple, elegant touches that accompany a brides big day.
The details and the pretty draping here are just lovely.
Final touches – earrings and a ever-present smile…
The veil and a clutch and she is almost ready…
Making sure everyone is as stunning as she is…
Make for a beautiful bride ready to shine!

Thank you to Elizabeth Hurley for the gorgeous images!
AFLAC recently held an event at the Club and Drew Bird Photography was on hand to capture some stunning images over the course of the day.
The Club possesses endless possibilities for all types of events, in this case, a Corporate event.
Julia Morgan was certainly talented at designing spaces to flow together effortlessly.
The group had their main meeting in the Ballroom with attendees happy and engaged throughout the day.
Lunch was done buffet-style in the neighboring spaces of the Venetian Room and Terrace.
The day concluded with more smiles and cocktails on the Terrace.
If our Team can assist you with an upcoming event, we would be delighted to help.

We are all smiles over here at the Berkeley City Club.
Our guests have given us the honor of a 2015 Certificate of Excellence with Trip Advisor!
Thank you for sharing the love of a landmark, your kind words and thoughtful reviews.
From all of us to all of you, thank you!
Beyond our beautiful exterior facade and sturdy concrete is a majestic piece of architecture standing strong for 85 years.
Did you know that you can step into a beautiful piece of history and spend a night here?
Yes. Yes you can!
Floors one and two are public spaces, used primarily for events (and taking in the beauty), but floors three through six were originally residences for women of the Berkeley Women’s City Club and turned into 35 hotel rooms for you to enjoy.
Upon a relaxing night of slumber in our cozy beds, walk down to Julia’s, for a satisfying and complimentary continental breakfast, served daily from 7am – 10am.
Rooms are available year round.
Find a room online or call our friendly Front Desk Team at 510.848.7800.
Welcome to the second part of our series in water conservation.
Next up, Landscaping. We have beautiful grounds and Courtyards to enjoy.
Our talented Gardener, Darnell, putting his beautiful touches on the West Courtyard.
Since many of our plants are mature with deep roots they can handle receiving less water.
Thick layers of mulch have been added to the gardens, to hold in moisture, and use less water.
Where possible, some plants have been fitted with their own drip irrigation at the base so that no water is wasted.
The length and frequency of watering has been reduced as well.
We also take advantage of many shady areas, thus allowing us to water less.
We hope you enjoyed peeking at our Courtyards and hearing about what we are doing to conserve water.
Do you have any ideas to share with us to possibly use in our Courtyards & Gardens?
Please share them in the comments below.
In celebration of “our love is equal” (Jim Obergefell, lead plaintiff) and the Supreme Court same-sex marriage ruling last week, we have a lovely gift to share with all future couples.
We wish all couples the warmest of congratulations!
Enjoy a complimentary champagne toast on your special day, with joy from the Team at the Berkeley City Club!

Restrictions may apply. New bookings only. Cheers!
A thank you to Gabriella Clavel for the beautiful images
In today’s times of a severe California drought, we all want to do our best to conserve water.
Our water conservation series will touch on what various departments of the Club are doing to execute a saving mindset.
A clean space begins with our Housekeeping Team.
This hard working group of ladies maintains our 35 hotel rooms and common areas throughout.
As a commitment to conservation, placards are placed in each hotel room to give guests the option to not wash bed sheets daily and to reuse towels during their stay.
We invite you to share any ideas you may have for hotel water conservation in the comments.
Future posts to come on what other departments are doing to conserve our precious resource.
If there is a “must see” when you visit the Berkeley City Club, it is the Pool.
Complete with an observation deck, you can bask in the beauty from up above.
An architectural masterpiece of its time, the pool is one of the most beautiful in the Bay Area.
We invite you to take a “up close and personal” peek at the hand-laid tile…
Can you imagine the attention to detail (and time) a task of this magnitude took?
What is equally amazing is the entire building was completed in just 11 months.
We wish you a relaxing summer!
June is in full swing at the Berkeley City Club, with the most popular month for weddings here.
We love this time of year — love in the air, with happiness and beauty all around.
