Enjoy A Piece History
Located just one block from the beautiful downtown area of Saratoga, the Foothill Club sits nestled in a quiet neighborhood. near the crossroads of Big Basin and Sunnyvale/Saratoga Roads. This artistic 1915 Arts and Crafts-style building was designed by Julia Morgan as the Women's Club of Saratoga. The Women's Club still owns the location today and they take pride in the beauty of the building as well as the private courtyard. The building is a registered Historic Landmark and is listed in several publications for both Julia Morgan designs and Northern California Redwood buildings. The Foothill Club earned the distinction of being in the National Register of Historic Landmarks in 1978.
With a vaulted redwood ceiling and original glass work form 1915, the venue exudes old world style and charm. Intimate dinner parties and weddings are held at this location every weekend and even during the week. We also have some very modern technology such as Air-Conditioning and Wi-Fi for our clients use. The stage is also a great spot for a band or DJ to get the crowd dancing and participating in the activities.
The outside of the building is covered with redwood shingles, there is a redwood trellis framing the Arts and Crafts-style windows. The adjoining pink pebble paved courtyard is spotted with Japanese Maples and lots of small white flowering plants. There is a twisted vine bench beneath the wisteria covered arbor, which all makes for a myriad of great photo photo opportunities. To the local neighborhood the courtyard is nicknamed the Secret Garden, once you see it you will understand why.
The Club’s foyer leads you into a room that is perfect for a buffet or other display if using the club for a sit-down style menu. In the adjoining ballroom there is a raised platform stage, original hardwood floor and an abundance of windows that lets in the sunlight, allowing the room to glow. The window looking out to the garden area creates a great space for the wedding cake and cutting ceremony.
Overall, the Foothill Club makes a wonderful space for any type of gathering, allowing your friends and family to enjoy a piece of history where they can enjoy your celebration.
