On February 4, 1931, The Athenaeum held its first formal dinner gala in honor of Elsa and Albert Einstein’s first visit to the California Institute of Technology campus. Much like that first dinner party, The Athenaeum continues to be a landmark of many personal, career, and family celebrations. The Athenaeum takes great pride in being a private club and hosting cherished memories and honored milestones for its members and their sponsored guests.
Our welcoming and attentive staff is committed to ensure that your event will fulfill your every wish. Our Private Events team personally oversee every occasion; whether it is a mid-week business presentation, corporate dinner or one of life's special celebrations, we will carry out your plan with attention to the smallest detail.
The Athenaeum caters events in the private dining rooms on weekdays, weekends, and some holidays. A minimum food and beverage guarantee is required for weekend and holiday events.
