The Thursday Club provided the perfect setting for our garden wedding outside and then a formal reception inside the clubhouse, with it's charming interior. We had the ideal setting with an outdoor bar area overlooking the ocean view and sunset and garden, indoor seating comfortably for our 120 guests, including a large dance floor and stage for the DJ. There is a nice large updated kitchen for the caterers and plenty of space for a buffet meal. We also had lights strung up overhead for a festive mood. Chris, the manager, was always available to answer all our questions and is friendly and extremely easy to work with. He recommended the caterer and DJ and set up the chairs for the wedding ceremony and the dinner. He does everything with a smile. You will not be disappointed if you get married and have a reception here. All of our guests were thrilled with this venue!

The Thursday Club is a great venue with a beautiful ocean view, with great gardens and light--and thus, great photos. I would absolutely hold my reception here again. Tom and Cookie, the resident managers of the venue, are pretty easy to work with and straight to the point. Due to the women's club schedule and personal schedules of the managers, it can be difficult to set up times to visit the venue; as an out of town bride, this may have been more difficult than someone who lives in town. You can choose from a number of approved caterers or pay a little more for an approved caterer. They don't allow hard liquor, but we served fortified sherry (in addition to beer, wine, sangria) for our guests looking for a stronger drink. I do wish they had a larger rental window--like the whole day, instead of 6 hours--anything after which is charged by the hour. I only had my reception here so I can't speak to the venue's ability to hold a ceremony.

*Note--I have a longer review with pics on yelp!*TC was a perfect size for our wedding--about 100 people came, but since we had a large bridal party (16 people) who would be standing, we only needed 84 ceremony seats. It was perfect. We had the reception tables set up so that our sweetheart table was right next to the stage, the dance floor was in the middle, and the tables were set up around the dance floor. We had ten round tables. You have the option of either using the tables from TC, or having your caterer bring them in for you (we chose the latter since it would be easier for our caterer to set them up--we used Ranch Events and it was only $4 per table to rent.) We had a photo booth set up in the sitting room area, close to where the buffet was set up, and our cocktail hour out on the balcony.We already knew how beautiful and perfect our venue was--you absolutely cannot beat the view of the ocean, the natural beauty of the garden, and the charm of the entire house and surrounding neighborhood. But our guests were truly in love with the venue. Almost every single one of our guests told us it was the most beautiful wedding venue they'd ever seen.Some people consider the rules of TC as negatives, but they weren't a problem at all for us. Your wedding needs to be completely over by 9pm. We worked with this by starting our wedding at 2pm (ample time to party!) and by having our DJ announce our sparkler exit at about 8:45pm. You can only have beer, wine, and champagne (and you can't have any kegs). Also, the $3000 you pay is for a six-hour rental period only. After that, it is $100 for each extra hour. We had the wedding of our dreams at The Thursday Club, and I highly recommend it!!!

I didn't give the venue the highest rating, but we were VERY happy with this place. I really couldn't say the managers were particularly responsive or professional, per se, but they get the job done and the location is beautiful and it fit what we were looking for exactly. It was built in the 1920s and has lovely architectural details and a breathtaking view of the ocean. It has a home-y feel with a fireplace in one room, and a living room set-up in another room. It was a bit pricey, considering it doesn't come with anything except the ambiance, and you must bring in literally everything (the dining chairs they offer are horrid), but it's all pricey when it comes to a wedding, and for a similar venue, I guess it was priced equally. You can't do a lot of decorating, either, but it's really not needed here.
You need to do an afternoon wedding, because it's in a residential neighborhood and has a curfew for noise, all out by 9:30pm! We did a no-host after party down the hill in Point Loma. It worked out perfectly, got married in the garden. The managers seem very strict initially, and there are a lot of rules, but they were great on the wedding day!
We heard many comments about the beauty of the location.

I got married here last weekend 10/28/12 and this place turned out great! This venue has spectacular views of the ocean and even better views of the sunset. The garden terrace where we had our ceremony did not need a single decoration added to it because it is so beautiful naturally. Our guests (mostly from the East Coast) have not stopped ranting and raving about it and I know that a few of the guests who all have weddings in their near future will now also be looking into the Thursday Club.
Our guests loved all of the different balconies off of the main reception room and enjoyed spending their cocktail hours outside taking in the views. I have only gotten a sneak peak of my weddings photos of the day thus far but I can honestly say it looks like the background sunsets were photoshopped into them, it's unreal.

Some people mentioned the downfall of having to be out of the venue by 9 pm because it is a residential area but this didn't end up effecting our wedding negatively in the long run. We had a nontraditional pre cocktail hour at 2-3, ceremony 3-3:30, post cocktail hour till 4:30, dinner served just after 5 which was perfect timing for the 6 PM sunset and starting the night off. Well, that and the fact that our wedding was on a Sunday (sunday funday). We had party buses pick up our guests at 8:45 PM and drive them out to the bars or back to hotels so that the night did not have to end.

Overall, I highly recommend this place.

Thursday Club is very beautiful but it comes with lots of challenges. The owners are hard to talk to and difficult. We also received many complaints from some vendors about working with them, many of our vendors said, "if you think they treat you bad, they treat us 10 times worse." Working with them definitely added a lot more stress to our wedding planning throughout the entire process up until the last minute of our wedding day. You must weigh out if the beautiful venue is worth the extra stress. Also no kegs or hard alcohol which is a bummer :(

Once we saw this place we knew it was where we would get married and have our reception. At our reception we received so many compliments on the location-everyone loved it! Be warned you might have a hard time getting people off the back patio because it has such a great view! Tom and Cookie were a pleasure to work. If you are looking for a great venue -this is the place! Beautiful garden for the ceremony and fantastic historic building for the reception-hidden gem!

We fell in love with the beautiful gardens, view and reception venue of The Thursday Club as soon as we walked around it. One of my favorite things is that every single corner is as scenic as the next.
We had about 175 guests so it was a pretty large reception for the building but it did end up working out very well and did not feel cramped at all.
We had wanted to do a plated dinner but the small kitchen doors made it a better idea to do food stations, which worked out great by having one in the room with the fireplace and another on the patio in front.
Our sunset shots from the balcony, cake shots on the stage, and mingling pix in the garden are some of my favorite from the day. (by Photography by Monet)
My only complaint is that they do not communicate via email so I always had to leave a message and wait for a return phone call.
Also, the pix on the website do not do it justice.
