Your 2nd round venue matches are ready!

Here’s what we amended in our search criteria:

  • Restaurant/bar/venue in either SF, Oakland, or Berkeley.

  • A venue that has character, is aesthetically appealing by itself and has indoor and outdoor areas. Minimal effort to tailor the decor to our event but want to avoid it looking 'thrifty.' We are looking for more classic/modern than rustic in style.

  • Open to having the end time be earlier than midnight, so long as there are bars nearby for the party to move to after.

To note: the biggest reasons we rejected restaurant venues was guest count (many cannot fit 100 + dance area) and type of food/serving style (plated fine dining). If you've changed your mind on either of these factors, let us know!
