With a building almost 85 years in existence, a lot of history has been made.
The building itself is an architectural masterpiece constructed in just 11 months.
The West Courtyard then and now. The stunning flagstone has remained a constant in our landscaping repertoire. It is certainly a favorite of many.
The pool has always been a favorite spot for visitors to the building. When it was dedicated in 1930, hundreds of Berkeley women attended.
Today, only Club members and hotel guests may swim in its waters. It is a sought-after indoor pool of many due to its beauty and historic nature.
A diving board used to adorn the deep end, but today its presence is no longer.
Our beautiful lobby and staircase to the Second Floor. A handrail was added to assist in climbing the stairs with ease.
Did you know that our current fine dining restaurant, Julia’s, used to be a private dining room exclusively for Club Members?
At one time in our history, the beautiful floors were covered in carpet. Before our 2012 unveiling as Julia’s restaurant, we pulled up the carpet to reveal the (stunning) original floors. Beautifully preserved, they stand out in all of their glory and are enjoyed by all.
If you want to see and learn more about our beautiful building, join us this Sunday (and most 4th Sundays of each month) with a complimentary docent tour.
Tours run from 1pm – 3:30pm and last approximately 30 minutes.
If you have questions about the tours, contact the Berkeley City Club Conservancy.
