Rooms

SWYC has a wide variety of rooms available, that can be configured for small meetings, to group presentations, to large events, such as weddings, graduations and funerals.

The following are descriptions of each room available for rental, followed by the room rental policy, capacity and rates.

Main Dining Room*: 


The 1,400 square foot Main Dining Room is our primary restaurant seating area, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows with an expansive view of the docks and a two-way gas fireplace.  The primary entrance into the Main Dining Room is from the lobby area by the built-in hostess station; there is also a door going out to the deck.   A small sliding air-wall can provide visual privacy from the Bar area.  A pull-down screen and a built-in LCD projector are available for use, as well as a built-in wireless microphone.  The Main Dining Room is not available for rent by itself.  Rental of the Main Dining Room must also include the Banquet Room.

Banquet Room*


The Banquet Room, also 1,400 square feet,  is an extension of the Main Dining Room with floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides and an extensive view of the docks.  The Banquet Room can be separated from the Main Dining Room by a large air-wall that intersects the two spaces.   When the air-wall is utilized, entrance into the Banquet Room is through the North Deck double glass doors or through a swinging door in the air-wall partition.  As in the Main Dining Room, the Banquet Room also features a duplicate pull-down screen, LCD projector and wireless microphone capabilities.  The Banquet Room may be rented by itself.  SWYC will continue to seat restaurant diners in the Main Dining Room during your event. 

North Deck*: 


The 1,000 square foot North Deck is located off the Banquet Room and is frequently reserved in conjunction with the Banquet Room/Main Dining Room for larger events.  The North Deck has wheelchair access from the parking lot.  Please be assured that reservations for the North Deck only will never be accepted when a separate event is taking place in the Banquet Room.

*The Main Dining Room, Banquet Room, and North Deck rented together provide the largest continuous event space at SWYC with approximately 3,800 square feet.  Together these three areas are ideal for wedding receptions and larger groups who may wish to have a sit-down dinner, a dance floor, a band, and an area for a preliminary cocktail party.  

Corinthian Room: 

Located on the north side of the building and accessed through the lobby, at 800 square feet the Corinthian Room is appropriate for classes, luncheons, dinner parties, or business meetings.  The Corinthian Room has floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of the La Playa lagoon and the hillside residences.  The Corinthian Room also has a small private deck with a second, private entrance into the room from the parking lot area.  A pull-down screen is available for your use.

Challenger Room: 

Located on the south side of the building, the Challenger Room is a smaller, very private area ideal for board meetings.  It contains a substantially-sized conference table and has a pull-down screen available for use.

Staff Commodore Room



Considered by many to be one of the loveliest rooms at SWYC, the 820 square foot Staff Commodore Room has floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides, with accordion-style glass doors leading out to the large South Deck and neighboring lawn area.  A separate entrance provides easy wheelchair access into the room.  The “SCR” is frequently rented with the South Deck for indoor/outdoor versatility.

South Deck: 



The approximately 1,000 square foot South Deck is bordered by the entrance into the Bar area, the Staff Commodore Room, and the lawn area.  It offers stunning views of the dock and marina areas.  The South Deck may be rented exclusively (without renting adjoining areas). 

Lawn:  

2,500 square feet of usable lawn space bordered by the Locker Room, the Junior’s clubhouse, the South Deck and the marina/docks.  A very popular choice for an outdoor wedding ceremony, reception, or large-scale informal barbeque buffet.

Please note that room capacities are guidelines only; special seating configurations, dance floors, buffet service etc. may limit the practical capacity of any room.

ROOM RESERVATION POLICY

All private events are scheduled around the official SWYC calendar.  Priority bookings are first given to membership-wide events, followed by special-interest club organization events; as such, the SWYC calendar must be finalized before any private event booking can be confirmed.  

The Food and Beverage Manager can accept reservations (space permitting) any day of the week for all available rooms with the exception of the Main Dining Room.  Requests for exclusive use of the Main Dining Room (in conjunction with the Banquet Room) on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday must be presented to the SWYC Board of Directors for approval.  Such a request is made in writing, addressed to the Board of Directors, and will be considered by the Board at their next regularly scheduled monthly meeting.  Our Food and Beverage Manager can assist you with the composition of this letter of request.

We are a functioning yacht club.  During your private event, the restaurant and bar at SWYC may be in full operation along with other private events, SWYC meetings, etc.. Youngsters participating in our Junior Sailing program or visiting with their family may also be present in the clubhouse or on the grounds simultaneous with your private event.  Within these limitations, every effort will be made to provide your group with privacy and minimize outside disruptions. 



SWYC offers competitive rental rates for its rooms.

Members are eligible for a “member rate” when an event they wish to hold is for their immediate family including children, grandchildren, siblings, and parents.  Members may sponsor a special event for a non-member and pay the member-sponsored room rental rate.  Examples of a member-sponsored special event would include any outside organization, company, group or friend who wishes to hold an event at SWYC.  The sponsor must be in attendance throughout the duration of the event.  Please consult with the Food and Beverage Manager if you have any questions or concerns about this policy. 

Room rental rates have been designed to offer a discount for usage during our non-prime time business days:  Monday – Thursday.  This reduction will especially benefit our corporate client-members who wish to host a sales meeting, team-building session, or other employee gathering during the work week.

Southwestern Yacht Club will waive room rental fees for memorial services and/or memorial receptions held for a member or the immediate family of a member. 

Rooms are rented for the duration of your event, rather than by the hour.
