Why Choose the Lakeview Foyer?

Adjacent to the Lakeside Theater, this unique, 2,400 square foot gathering space is perfect for mixers or cocktail parties or can be set up as a small exhibit hall. It boasts beautiful views of Lake Merritt through soaring windows, holds up to 200 people, and is Wi-Fi accessible.

Convenient access to the Lakeview Foyer is facilitated by a pedestrian bridge at D-level of the parking garage, connecting to the 2nd Floor lobby of the Tower, directly adjacent to the Theater.
