Why We Like This Place

The Blackhawk Museum is an exciting place for private events. Overlooking Blackhawk Plaza, the building is a study in glass, granite, and stainless steel—a multimillion-dollar facility that showcases rare classic automobiles and automotive fine art and artifacts in elegant, sumptuous surroundings. 

The foyer is awe-inspiring with its soaring skylights and dusty rose Italian granite floors and walls. The juxtaposition of metal and stone with soft, rich colors creates a vivid impression. As the sun sets through the tinted glass façade, the entire space is bathed in a warm glow.

The dining area presents a striking contrast—black from its granite floor to unadorned ceiling. Beautiful vintage cars border the dining area and are highlighted by a network of computerized lights. Here guests are dazzled by colorful fender curves, gleaming surfaces, and sparkling brass and chrome.

And what’s particularly nice about this 65,000-square-foot facility is that it offers so many options for hosting your celebration. They include the automobile gallery, tri-level lobbies, exhibit space, outdoor plaza with fountain, and more. If you’re seeking a smashing venue in the East Bay for a wedding, company soirée, or other private party, this is the place to have an unforgettable event.
