Brazilian Room

East Bay



Surrounded by the aroma of pine, oak, and eucalyptus, the historic Brazilian Room in Berkeley is a striking venue perfect for a celebration. A gift from the country of Brazil from their exhibition hall at the Golden Gate Exposition on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay in 1939, the Brazilian Room is set apart as an architectural feat, with the original Brazilian interior paneling of the hardwood intact and an added exterior of timber and stone built by the WPA. With sloping lawns and trees peppered on the hillside, the outdoor view is phenomenal and popularly enjoyed from the flagstone patio. The small garden adjoining the patio also adds onto the sophistication and romance of the environment. With a capacity of 150 seated on the patio, this spot is ideal for an intimate or extravagant ceremony. The Old-English style makes the Brazilian Room just as beautiful inside as it is outdoors. With glass doors, wooden beams and floor-to-ceiling windows on either side of the hall, this cozy atmosphere is topped off by a huge stone fireplace and refined wood flooring to truly make this event special. The Brazilian Room will wow you on your big day with the beautiful setting and ambiance that it has to offer.
