The Oakland Rotunda

The Oakland Rotunda

In the setting of the Rotunda Building, you and your guests will experience unparalleled ambience and service. When only the finest will do from start to finish, look no further for a venue. The ultimate green event space and building – a recycled, repurposed, renovated National Historic Landmark. The artistry and elegance of a previous era with the environmental consciousness and technology of today, located at Oakland City Center BART.

Known as the crown jewel of Downtown Oakland, the Oakland Rotunda is a magnificent 7 story, 325,000 square foot Class A office building features 18 foot high ceilings, 10-18 foot high windows and a breathtaking 180 foot tall central glass dome.

A Magical Event Space

The single most beautiful, architecturally brilliant event space in Oakland.  Home to dozens of Oakland’s smartest , politically connected and financially savvy firms, the owner’s marketing acumen  and philanthropic nature opens to non profits, political companies, mayors needing to be married and high end Oakland Hills girls  looking for an MTV inspires Sweet Sixteen. While the Rotunda’s dramatic shaping proves a challenge for acoustics, the venue’s impeccable environment and the quality on site staff make up for it.  An extra star to Midge Walterhouse, who with this part time job that seems like a 3 person gig, manages this place as smooth as silk.

The Rotunda building is magnificent. From the outside it does not look so special but once you are inside you can feel it. Tonight I went to a charity auction event at the Rotunda for my daughter’s school. They did a fantastic job getting everything just right for the event. I think everyone was very pleased. The entire evening was a success and it was easy to get home. I would recommend this venue for a special event or charity auction. It is a crowd pleaser.

The gold trim and beautiful columns along with the fabulous terrazzo floor provide the finishing touches to this historic masterpiece. The grand staircase presents a natural stage for musicians, speakers, or a bride and groom. The Rotunda is your grand stage.
