Beauty in the details

One of the comments we hear most is how much people love our beautiful architecture.

Needless to say, we wholeheartedly agree!

How pretty is the handrail to our main entrance and the etching into the concrete?

A favorite part of the first floor are the high, arched ceilings.

Love for our Pool

If there is something that everyone who visits the Berkeley City Club wants to see, it is our Pool.

In case you have not taken in this Julia Morgan masterpiece in real life, it is a sight to see.

Upon our opening in 1929, and for many decades following, the pool has been a place for water-lovers of all walks of life to enjoy.

We love the views of the Courtyard and all of the natural light…

It is safe to say the pool is adored by many.

The pool is open exclusively to Club members and Hotel guests.

It is open daily, 5am – 10pm, and closed Wednesday evenings from 7pm – 10pm for cleaning.

Have you seen the pool in person?  What do you love most about it?

All about membership

The Berkeley City Club is more than a event venue, historic hotel and fine dining restaurant.

We are proud to be a private social club – inspiring friendships, memories and fun – since our inception in 1930.

Women enjoying the Loggia before windows & a door were added to adjoin it to the East Courtyard.

We started as a private women’s club, with the building entirely funded by Berkeley women.

In 1962, the charter was updated from Berkeley Women’s City Club to Berkeley City Club and men were welcome to join in membership.
