The Berkeley City Club began its history back in 1929, when its architect, Julia Morgan and a determined group of over 4,000 Bay Area women broke ground to begin construction on the building.   It was constructed in 11 months and was built with the intention to improve social, civic and cultural progress.  Fast forward to 1962 and the charter was updated to allow men to join the Club.

Decades later, the dream of these Berkeley women continues to be a reality for architecture-lovers of all ages.  Today, the Berkeley City Club functions as a private social club, a 35-room hotel and event venue.  We also house a stunning fine dining restaurant, on the second floor, named Julia’s, in celebration of our fine architect and her efforts to build our stunning building.

  1. I’m interested in your Wednesday lunch on the terrace. What is the menu and price? Also, we would love to take a docent tour of the city club. Is this possible?
    Thank you,

    • Dear Patty,
      Thank you for your interest! I apologize for the delayed reply.
      Our Terrace Lunches are amazing. This past Summer they went from June to September (thanks to our stunning weather and popular demand). The pricing is set at $26 for adults and the menu varies, but is a variety of cold salads, warm dishes and light lunch fare. It changes a bit based on fresh fruits and veggies and sourcing fresh meats and fish.
      The Docent Tours are lovely and complimentary. We have our next one this Sunday, November 23, 2014, beginning at 1pm.
      Just plan to show up and enjoy.
      The Docents take a break each December, but are back for more fun in January, if you can’t make the one this month.
      Wishing you all the best.
