With a distinct grand style, reminiscent of the Hollywood hideaway it once was, Bacara is a fabulous destination along the Santa Barbara coastline. It offers a great sense of arrival, a number of entertainment options for a wedding or a party, several restaurants and a very glamorous pool that leads down to the beach. Having produced multiple events at Bacara over the years, it’s a venue I always enjoy going back to. Due to its size, the property can be very flexible and offers a multitude of event options. Backed by a strong food and beverage team, this is a good venue for events, large or small. This is where we produced the Oprah Winfrey Legends Ball and the Legends of the Civil Rights, Selma and many other top-notch, highly publicized events. -CC

It is, quite possibly, one of the most beautiful places on earth. More than a meeting venue, the Mediterranean influenced Bacara is a legendary coastal destination. Located on the Pacific, Bacara’s 78 acres along the American Riviera set the stage for extraordinary. From incentives, corporate retreats and investor meetings to team-building and social events, any occasion is larger-than-life at Bacara. Here, the exclusivity of a luxury resort and more than 70,000 square feet of function space blend with the sheer beauty of a coveted setting. Resort amenities include four restaurants and lounges, a four- story spa and wellness center, three oceanfront swimming pools, a 12,000-bottle wine cellar, the Foley Food & Wine Society Wine Tasting Room and 70,000 square feet of function space. Accessible, yet private, Bacara’s exclusive location makes it the ideal meeting destination.

Bacara Ballroom: At 11,310 square feet, Bacara Ballroom is elegant and expansive. Its authentic sculpted ceiling (soaring 23 feet above), carved wooden doors and six functional balconies are a tribute to fine architecture. Able to accommodate 850 people for a seated dinner or up to 1,250 theatre-style, the space can also be partitioned into three equal areas. Further, there are 8,700 square feet of pre-function space in front, a beautiful vaulted foyer that’s complemented by an ocean-facing event lawn which can be tented.
