Courtyard beauty

If you find yourself at the Club looking for quiet moment, step away into one of our Courtyards.

Here is a peek into the West Courtyard.  It is located off of the Drawing Room and is also visible as you climb the staircase to the Second floor.  It is pretty magical.

We just love the flagstone and lush greenery.

Next up is the East Courtyard.  It is easily visible from the main hallway and probably one of the most visited.

Chairs and a quiet bench perfectly invite a moment to yourself.

East Court B

The last Courtyard is the North.  It is all the way at the end of the main hallway, just after you pass the Pool Locker Room. Tucked away, it is usually the most quiet.

We hope you enjoyed this little roundup.  Take a little time to explore them the next time you are at the Club.

 

 

A day of love

Summer is in full swing around the Club with beautiful weddings all around.

We love the magic that these days bring and are swooning over this one from last Summer.

Love for the BCC

Travelers far and wide are singing our praises and we are delighted to share about it.

Just last week, our 38-room hotel, event venue, private social club and fine dining restaurant got a lovely nod in the Los Angeles Times.

Praised for our great location, stunning architecture and beautiful pool, the building is a sight to see and stay in.

The gem of a building, constructed in just eleven months by none other than famed architect Julia Morgan and is standing stately and strong, close to ninety years later.
