In the 3 years of its existence, we have established ourselves as a premier venue. With all of the interest we’ve garnered, we often find ourselves with multiple clients wishing to book the Cuvier on the same day. Venues are now starting to book clients 14+ months out! With that in mind, our specialists offer you an edge to securing the ideal space to host your event.
All of our Event Specialists are extensively trained in knowledge of all the neighboring venues. So, if you have a date that has special meaning or if your schedule demands a particular date and we are booked, we have options! Here are three of my absolute favorite venues in La Jolla and some of what they have to offer:
The La Jolla Cove Suites- This is a family owned and operated, this gem looks right out onto the historic La Jolla Cove. Its rooftop offers the best view in all of La Jolla and your guests have the luxury of securing a room onsite. You can easily host a party for over 150 guests with ample room for a dinner & dancing under the night sky. I love to see the rooftop at night and I recommend adding some market lights to really make some magic for your event!
The Darlington House- Built as a private home in the 20’s, this beautifully renovated property was designed in a traditional Spanish style. With sweeping rose gardens, brick pathways, and terracotta roof tiles. You can have 150 guests seated comfortably in the rose garden and they have adjacent patios if you’re considering having your ceremony there. This allows you to have both your ceremony & reception onsite. Just a tip for larger guest counts, I love to offer valet service. It’s a small investment with a high yield.
The La Jolla Bridge Club- For those who have to be “on the ocean,” this is the place for you. A small modest building at la Jolla Cove, this place is easy to miss but not to be missed. Surrounded by a grove of trees, your guests can mingle as the sun goes down and listen to waves crashing in. For couples hosting a Wedding, you can take advantage of Elizabeth Browning Scripps Park just south of the club for your ceremony. With park permit and chair rentals , think about $600 total to have the ocean as your ceremony backdrop on your day. The prices for renting the club varies but the max you’ll pay is $2500.
