I have come into a few really incredible new locations that I’d love to share with everyone in the industry! I can’t believe the gems that are springing up!
1034 Divisidero Street San Francisco
The first is a glorious Victorian home in San Francisco that is impeccably decorated in a warm modern design. It is owned by real estate professionals (really great guys) and is available for events as well as a vacation home. I attended a wine tasting there and it was drop-dead gorgeous. You can contact owner John Martin firstname.lastname@example.org for more info: 415.509.3555 Click on the link to this place NOW and look at the fantastic photos. You’ll be dialing their number before you even get to their fabulous patio/jacuzzi photos!
The next is The Thomas Estate in Pleasanton (near Alamo/Blackhawk). I went on a site tour with fabulous Barbara Llewellyn and was in heaven! The setting is gorgeous, you feel like you’re in the middle of the wine country! It’s sprawling country and even features its own chapel. No kidding! Stained glass windows and all. Plus a pool, and parking for 150!
Barbara did a beautiful event there and had part of the yard tented with a beautiful Zephyr Tent. There’s a slide show on their homepage.
And last, but certainly not least is the Craneway Pavilion. It’s set on the waterfront in Richmond and although I haven’t visited YET, the photos make me want to throw a party there now! Maybe I should start planning one???
I met the owners/developers and managers of this site and they are in love with it! Who wouldn’t be? I plan on sailing over there from the Berkeley Marina/OCSC some day. How romantic…
Here’s a little history:
Once a Ford Model A factory, the just-renovated Craneway Pavillion features a soaring, industrial-chic interior, breathtaking waterfront views of San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley, and state-of-the-art infrastructure.
The Craneway is located in the heart of the East Bay, minutes from Marin and Berkeley, and features a private wharf for short ferry rides from San Francisco.
The Craneway can accommodate up to 2,100 guests for seated events and up to 5,000 guests for receptions.
