About Us

The Garty Pavilion at
San Diego Rowing Club

On the west shore of beautiful Mission Bay is San Diego's best kept secret, the award winning Garty Pavilion at the San Diego Rowing Club. This magical bayside setting with its singular contemporary design is quickly becoming the location of choice for wedding ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal dinners and special events. With its 10 foot tall sliding glass wall opening to sweeping views over Mission Bay, this indoor/outdoor space has an ambiance all its own. Twilight introduces spectacular sunsets and shimmering reflections of the surrounding night lights on the bay. Summer events have the added bonus of enjoying fireworks from nearby Sea World.

Located at the north end of the Coggeshall Rowing Center at 1220 El Carmel Place, the Garty Pavilion offers the advantages of privacy and close proximity to the water. Designed by architect and club member Randy Hanna, the space reflects elements of the sport of rowing, particularly in the elegant ceiling, which is reminiscent of a rowing shell's hull. With a combined indoor/outdoor area of about 2,000 square feet, the Garty Pavilion comfortably accommodates up to 150 guests.

The San Diego Rowing Club is proud to share our Garty Pavilion for your wedding and special occasion. We will work with you to help you make your special event truly memorable.
