Golden Gate Club
A photo of the Ventana Ballroom set with colorful decorated 10x10' round tables in anticipation of a celebratory event.

Built in 1949, the Golden Gate Club was once the enlisted men’s service club and the site of several historic treaty signings. Today it is a popular celebration and meeting venue on the Main Post, the cultural heart of the park.


The site features views of San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and the Presidio forest. The graceful Spanish Colonial Revival-building offers a spectacular setting for weddings, private parties, meetings, and conferences.


The Golden Gate Club is available for reception rentals every day, year round, except for national holidays including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year's Day. Reservations are taken up to two years in advance.
