News & Events

The Faculty Club is the site of numerous events, both private and public, which are too many to publish.  For example, the UC Berkeley Career Center reports that 90% of campus recruiting events are held at our facility.

Dining & Bar News

We have new lunch and dinner menus for Fall 2014.  You can preview these on the menu page of our website, or, better yet, come try them!  We're continuing our Prime Rib Dinner Special on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.  A delicious meal  for just $17.95 per person, and no corkage fees. During  the fall semester, there will also be a Themed Family-Style Dinner, for $30 per person.  Parties of four or larger get a complimentary bottle of wine (manager's choice).  This month, this dinner will be on September 26, and theme will be Indian.

 

Monthly Art Exhibit  - Carol Brighton: Handmade Paper

Artist's statement:
I graduated from UC Berkeley with a Bachelors degree in Fine Art and several years training in Chinese language. I’m a printmaker and papermaker. My studio is in Berkeley where I teach private printmaking classes.

I lived in Taiwan, and toured Asia extensively, concentrating on travel in Tibet and China, and India. I co-founded Paper Road/Tibet, a non-profit papermaking project at an orphanage in Lhasa, Tibet. These travels and the study of Asian cultures are major influences in my life and work.
The artwork for this exhibition, Indigo Nights, is handmade paper I created over the last four months at the Awagami Paper Studios in Japan and at my home studio in Berkeley.

The fiber for these papers is Kozo. It is grown and prepared and dyed with indigo by the Awagami staff in Japan. I pour thin slurry of paper pulp on a screen, much as one would pour paint, creating images with streams of pulp.


Holiday Hours & Closures

The Faculty Club's office and dining calendars generally follow the UC Berkeley Academic Calendar, whereby we close on the same national and academic/administrative holidays. The Faculty Club does, however, remain open and offer full service during most of Spring Break and through the summer. The Faculty Club Hotel remains open throughout the year
