Venue Features
The Scene:

At first glance, guests are wowed by this charming two-story mansion. The white picket fence and a classic brick path leading to the front door are just a few of the many elegant details that make The Victorian so unique.

HERITAGE SQUARE | With The Victorian to one side, and the California Heritage Museum and its sprawling lawn on the other, Heritage Square is the ideal venue for large events such as wedding ceremonies, bar/bat mitzvahs, or giant celebrations.

THE PATIO | Located in front of The Victorian, the gorgeous patio is surrounded by tropical greenery and majestic trees with exquisite crystal chandeliers suspended from their branches above creating the perfect ambiance for a romantic first dance or a corporate party filled with timeless memories.

THE MAIN FLOOR | When entering The Victorian, guests are greeted with the Chandelier Bar to the left, and the main banquet room to the right. The Chandelier Bar is always a crowd favorite with its elegant chandeliers suspended above the bar top and the gorgeous vintage furniture beautifully placed for guests to sit comfortably and enjoy each others company.

The main banquet room is lined with french doors leading out to the side covered patio. With beautiful trees sprouting through the natural wood floor and hanging plants and twinkle lights lining the ceiling, the side covered patio is always a crowd favorite. This banquet room is the perfect spot for a romantic wedding or a fun corporate event. The space can be fully customized to fit the look and needs of any event.

THE BIRDCAGE | Home to the iconic vintage library, the upstairs portion of this beautiful venue is known as The Birdcage. Next to the library are two french doors leading out to the terrace which looks out over beautiful Santa Monica. The tropical vibes and spacious layout at The Birdcage create the perfect environment for timeless events such as weddings and conferences.
