1909 Founders’ Room
This is where the community’s leaders gather for the finest in San Diego dining. Designed in the Hollywood Regency style, Frank Sinatra was an inspiration for this room which accommodates up to 64. Pictures from the original clubhouse grace the walls to remind Members of the bygone era of the Club founders.
Known as “The War Room” by our Members, the Sefton Library hosts up to 12 for business luncheons and closing deals. It’s an effective work environment where contracts are signed and business gets done. Along with rich wood, upholstered walls and wine lockers, the room contains a portrait of Mr. Thomas W. Sefton, a well-known philanthropist and civic leader. He presided for three decades over one of San Diego’s oldest and largest banks, founded by his grandfather in 1889.
Perfect for private wine tastings, this room hosts up to 12 and is used daily by our sommelier and Members who store their wine here at the Club.
One of the crown jewels of the clubhouse, this room offers amazing 360-degree views of San Diego, from Balboa Park and the Pacific Ocean to Coronado and the bridge. It hosts a variety of events, such as distinguished speaker series and special Club events, for up to 204 seated guests or a reception of 300. It’s also the perfect place to celebrate holiday parties, weddings and private events.
This bustling room gives new life to the everyday energy and ambience of the Club. It’s an “anytime” lounge perfect for bringing in coworkers for shared snacks and a glass of wine after a long day. In the mornings, enjoy a complimentary breakfast and read the daily paper on a Club iPad, or entertain clients during a casual lunch. Our focal point in the Apollo Room is a surf-inspired communal table designed by renowned local waterman, John Bishop.
The Media Room is the place for Member interaction. It’s fully equipped with a 103-inch screen perfect for enjoying exciting games and timeless movies, as well as comfortable seating areas where you can catch up on work after breakfast or lunch. The room features Padres memorabilia and Taylor guitars donated to the Club.
This quintessential boardroom has all the amenities for larger executive meetings with the sophistication and class of a private club. Audiovisual features include a 65-inch videoconferencing unit, omnidirectional microphones and an iPod dock. The 1896 Boardroom is designed for private business meetings where you can connect with up to 16 people.
Crescendo and Encore Rooms
In these two private meeting rooms that can combine to make one large room, the decor pays homage to the local arts community, from the opera to the symphony (located on the lower floors of the Symphony Towers building.) Members use them for sunrise yoga, and to host weddings, social and business events. It's perfect for seated dinners with up to 50 guests, or a reception of 65.
