The Berkeley event space is not only unique with her gorgeous Victorian era appointments, but the space also has two large open-air decks that offer incredible views of both the downtown city skyline as well as breathtaking sunset views of the harbor. The event space boasts a large dance floor, beautiful hand carved wood seating, and Victorian (opalescent) stained glass windows that are back-lit at night and crown the venue with grace and elegance.

The historic tall ship Star of India is arguably, the most unique icon of San Diego, if not all of Southern California. Built in 1863, she has circled the globe 21 times and has been designated with National and State Historic Landmark status.

Testimonials
I wanted to say a very big thank you to you and your team for helping us to host a most wonderful event on the Berkeley and Californian last night. The venue looked beautiful, all of the staff was friendly and helpful, and the entertainment and catering was perfect. You’ve both been such a support and help to me in organizing this event, which has been challenging due to my being on the other side of the world! I would not hesitate in recommending the San Diego Maritime Museum and will indeed do so again whenever the occasion arises. Thanks again!
