About Us

Southern Marin's Best Kept Secret

A beautiful North Bay venue in the heart of Sausalito and one of Marin’s oldest landmarks, the IDESST Sausalito Portuguese Cutural Center provides just the right location for your special event. Sausalito, a beautiful seaside village nestled against the Marin headlands, north of the Golden Gate, offers scenic views, charming shops and gourmet restaurants.

Our recently renovated Center on Caledonia Street is just one block from the beach and the marina. It is one of the largest rental facilities and best values available in Marin. The Center is a perfect location for weddings, conferences, receptions, dances, meetings, events and celebrations.

The Center now provides over 5,000 sq. ft. of premium space. A 2,800 sq ft. Ballroom with beautiful hardwood floors is available plus an adjoining 2,300 sq ft. Dining Room. Rooms can be rented together or separately and include our bar with cocktail area, kitchen for caterer staging, large restrooms and a beautiful foyer.
