Nestled in the canyons and arroyos along the northern slops of the Santa Monica Mountains, Braemar Country Club offers an oasis of peace away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The recently renovated clubhouse is an elegant, modern setting for all types of events. One walks on cool creamy marble through an open floor plan flooded with natural light. There are graceful columns along every hallway, lots of French Doors and a tiled deck that wraps around the entire structure. The pleasing architectural elements are perfectly complemented by the natural colors of the carpeting and comfortable furniture.
Outdoor ceremonies and receptions are held on the brick terrace, which offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the Masters Course and San Fernando Valley. During evening celebrations, city lights glitter in the distance, and for more sparkle you may want to add candles and twinkle lights. Customized cocktail bars and buffet stations can be setup on the terrace, making it the perfect place for guests to mingle on a balmy nigh. The terrace is also a popular spot for al fresco dinners. Other dining options are inside the clubhouse’s Main Dining Room or poolside.
The best location for an indoor ceremony is a versatile suite of three rooms, each of which overlooks the same spectacular view: the emerald hills of the golf course in the foreground, the Santa Susana and San Gabriel mountains in the background. Laid out in an L-shape with floor to ceiling windows, the rooms can be opened up to allow for very large parties or closed off by partitions into five separate spaces that collectively serve as ceremony site, cocktail area, and banquet hall with dance floor.
Flexibility is the name of the game here, and no matter how you orchestrate your celebration, nature is always within reach.
