The Silicon Valley Capital Club is located at 50 W. San Fernando, Suite 1700 (Knight Ridder Building), in the block between Market Street and First Street and located near St. Joseph’s Basilica Church. The Club is on the 17th floor with parking available directly beneath the building. Various hotels and restaurants are located all within walking distance.
Our menus are merely suggestions. Our Chef would be happy to prepare any menu you may desire. To allow adequate time for ordering and preparation, menus must be completed a minimum of two weeks in advance. Large events require the menu completion a minimum of 30 days prior to the event date. The Club must provide all food and beverages for your event but certain items are subject to approval. Specialty cakes are allowed in the Club but is subject to a cake cake cutting fee. Outside wine is also allowed in the Club but is subject to a corkage fee.
Food & Beverage Minimums
Our ballroom also carries a food and beverage minimum, which varies based on the time frame used and the day of your event. All food and beverage items apply towards the minimum; however, miscellaneous items, taxes or service charges do not apply.
Non-Member Fees and Room Rental
Non-Member Fees are applied to all non-member special events. Member sponsored events will require written approval from the Member; however, the sponsoring member does not have to be present at the event. Billing will not flow through the Member’s account; rather it will be established in a guest account, good for only the life of the event. Additional room rental fees apply for non-members depending on the room and the timeframe being used.
Contracts, Deposits and Guarantees
A signed catering agreement, credit card authorization form, function sheet, and a non-refundable deposit are required for all special events over $2,500. The initial deposit is due at signing of the contract. A second deposit, equal to fifty percent of the estimated cost is expected 90 days prior to the event. The final guest count and estimated balance of the event are due three days prior. This final payment is requested by credit card or cashier’s check. Any outstanding miscellaneous charges will be billed to a credit card the night of the event.
Function Sheet Details
Your Private Events Director will work with you on planning the details for your event and our banquet staff will make sure it is executed up to your standards. Our request is that all menu specifics and details are planned no later then one week prior to your event.
The Club does not provide a tasting from the banquet menu. However, for weddings we will host up to two people for a “Date Night” once the contract has been signed, which will allow you to experience our service and our cuisine. You will be able to try any items from our a la carte menu in our dining room. The dinner must be scheduled with your Private Events Director prior to your event.
We currently welcome any service vendors into the Club, although a preferred vendor list is provided upon booking. We do not require a wedding coordinator, but recommend one if you feel additional assistance is needed over and above the assistance of your Private Events Director. Please have all of your contracted vendors communicate with your Private Events Director to schedule building access and receive load-in instructions. They are to adhere to Club's dress code and are prohibited from consuming alcohol while providing you service in our facility.
There are no jeans allowed in our dining room. As always, there is no shorts, athletic attire, or athletic shoes allowed.
Parking is available, if guests choose to self-park. We are located directly underneath the Knight Ridder building.
