Cabrillo Pavilion is a historic wedding venue located in Santa Barbara, California. Located right on the waterfront, this 1920s-inspired building benefits from proximity to the beach (perfect for ceremonies), while also boasting the charm of spacious interiors. Recently, Cabrillo Pavilion underwent a refurbishment - and from Fall 2019 onward, it becomes a wonderful place to celebrate your wedding.
Facilities and Capacity
You can have your romantic ceremony on the beach near this refurbished venue before padding your way through the soft sandy shore through a shower of confetti and applause.
With your status as newlyweds sealed, you and your guests can make your way to the elevated events room. Located on the upper floor, the party can begin in earnest as everyone welcomes the happy couple. Here, up to 215 guests can be accommodated, making it a rather sizable space.
The lobby provides a roomy entrance where cocktail tables can be arranged for post-ceremony nibbles and conversation. A mobile bar station can also be set up, ideally in one of the corners of the lobby.
The main area for hosting your meal offers room for banquet tables to be set up, while a dance floor can also be set aside for the late-night revelries. Buffet tables can be laid out on the side of the room closest to the beach. Two terraces facing onto the ocean can be accessed on the east and west sides of the main room.
A kitchen, ideal for outside caterers to use, is located away from the main area, while restrooms, a scullery, and vestibule make up the majority of the venue’s other spaces.
From Fall 2019 onward, the lower level of Cabrillo Pavilion will also feature a new look. Here, the happy couple and their guests can benefit from several rooms suitable for a variety of purposes. What’s more, the La Sirena restaurant would be ideal for the wedding party to dine in or perhaps order catering services from. Cabrillo Pavilion allows you to bring in your own alcohol and catering services, while entertainment providers can also be brought on site. Conveniently, the venue is wheelchair accessible and it can be availed of throughout the year for weddings, special occasions, and more.
