Meet the B3C

Did you know that the Berkeley City Club partners with a non-profit organization called the Berkeley City Club Conservancy, who are dedicated to preserving our historic building and protecting the legacy of Julia Morgan, our talented architect?

Established in 1965, this group works tirelessly to help raise funds and ensure that our spaces are protected for many years to come.

In the coming months, keep posted for details on a lecture series they are doing to engage and inspire others on the topics of architecture, design and historic revitalization.

If you would like a further peek into our building, join us for a 4th Sunday of the month tour to delve into our history a bit more.  At $10/person, your money goes to the preservation of our stunning landmark.

Tours run 45 minutes and take place at approximate intervals of 1:15pm, 2pm and 2:45pm.

Membership with the BCC

For all that have enjoyed our building, you know the special feeling the building provides.

It is majestic beauty that has been cherished for almost nine decades.

Originally constructed as a private women’s club in 1929, now both men and women enjoy the grandeur of our spaces and the privilege of a membership with us.

 When I walked through the doors I felt a 10-lb weight lift from my shoulders (I hadn’t even known it was there!) Serenity and beauty, friendships old, possibly new – what could be better?”

Our members enjoy swimming in the waters of our pool, among countless other benefits.

Recently, a member reflected on the joys of swimming.

Floating on your back in the pool at Berkeley City Club, with the room’s arches bringing a crisp order to the roughly textured concrete walls, you feel as privileged as a Hearst. As a club member confides, with the air of one sharing a guilty pleasure: “When you have it all to yourself, it’s like you’re the princess in the pool.”

To learn of the many benefits available to BCC members, peruse our website.
