Founded in 1898 by a group of Berkeley women to promote environmentally informed good design practices for the development of the Berkeley hills, The Hillside Club remains a vibrant community-based membership organization supporting awareness of current events, the arts, and culture. 

We are delighted that you’re interested in joining the club.

The Hillside Club is a thriving community club owned and operated by its members for over 125 years. We take pride in our inclusivity, with most events open to the public and our members enjoying exclusive discounts on admission fees. Whether you're interested in attending a Fireside meeting, concert, lecture, film, dinner, dance, game party, book group, or morning Chi Gong class, there's something for everyone.

The Club welcomes member involvement, but the emphasis is on fellowship, so each member determines her/his own level of participation.  Members will find many opportunities for self-expression,  self-development, and service to the broader community as well as to the Club and other members.
