Rent our Historic Clubhouse – 518 B Street, Petaluma
Invite your guests to celebrate your special event in the warm, welcoming atmosphere of the historic Petaluma Woman’s Club. Only two tree-lined blocks from the vibrant riverside downtown and theater district of Petaluma with its period architecture, this venue offers a unique alternative to the usual banquet room.
Our clubhouse is a registered historic building constructed by and for the Petaluma Woman’s Club in 1913 and dedicated in January 1914. It features the original craftsman-style design and workmanship by renowned architect Brainerd Jones. We are pleased to offer this venue for your private or corporate event.
Step through the double entry doors into the foyer and feel the gentility and hospitality of previous generations. From the foyer, your guests may enter either the main hall or the connected anteroom with its atmospheric fireplace, where you may choose to offer hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. A band or DJ can take the large stage in the main hall while the caterer of your choice serves from the full-service kitchen.
Tall windows flood the hall and anteroom with natural light by day, while antique brass overhead light fixtures illuminate the evening.
There are two dressing rooms, which are particularly handy for weddings. The guests of honor may choose to dress or refresh in either. The refurbished “Bride’s Room” allows the bride to descend the staircase to the foyer to greet guests. There is also a separate “Groom’s Room,” and a restroom at the rear adjacent to the stage.
The main floor restroom, accessible from the foyer, was recently renovated.
PWC is available to organizations and private parties for banquets, wedding receptions, business meetings, anniversary and birthday parties, recitals, luncheons and more.
Bookings are accepted for Saturdays on an all-day basis and Sunday through Friday on an hourly basis.
