About the Forest Hill Clubhouse

Constructed in 1919 as the gathering place for the newly-established Forest Hill neighborhood, the historic Forest Hill Clubhouse is an exceptional building designed by the award winning architect, Bernard Maybeck. Most famous for his creation of the Palace of Fine Arts during the Pan Pacific Exposition in San Francisco, Maybeck’s designs are characterized by his unique blend of architecture and local natural settings. Surrounded by brick patios, a courtyard and shaded by mature trees, the Forest Hill Clubhouse is the perfect venue for romantic weddings, elegant receptions, anniversary parties and other special occasions that call for a truly memorable celebration.

The Clubhouse is one of the finest examples of the Arts and Crafts style architecture, boasting a Great Room with a soaring beamed ceiling, a charming mezzanine, beautifully detailed original woodwork, original light fixtures with mica shades, and some original furniture. After extensive renovations in 2013, the Clubhouse shines again in its original glory – but outfitted with modern-day amenities including a brand new state-of-the-art catering kitchen and ADA accessible restrooms.
