As of February 1st, the Lakeview Foyer will be unavailable for reservations due to planned infrastructural improvements. Improvements will continue through summer 2016.

All subsequent 2016 holds will be considered on a case by case basis, and contracted at a discounted rate. Inquire for details.

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.
