Craneway Pavilion

East Bay



This world-class facility in the heart of the East Bay is defined by more than 40,000 panes of glass from floor-to-ceiling, illuminating the historic architecture's awe-inspiring, open design. Soaring ceilings and bay views are the crux of the venue, originally designed by architect, Albert Kahn. The industrial-style, former Ford Assembly Plant, dates back to 1931 and offers 20,000 to 45,000 square-feet of space. The facility is unique with a saw-tooth roof, original brickwork and window panes. Memorable, panoramic views of the Bay and San Francisco skyline dominate the backdrop. An adjoining open-air patio makes for a soft transition from indoors to an outdoor, unobstructed view. The Assemble Restaurant, just outside the main facility, is also available for more intimate celebrations.
