Try http://www.herecomestheguide.com.  You can search by region in the Bay Area.  I remember seeing several locations in Berkeley mentioned on the website, and in the book.  Good luck!

Hotel Shattuck Plaza, maybe?

How many people are you trying to accommodate? If I knew the size of your party, I might have some other suggestions.

The Julia Morgan Berkeley City Club has some smaller rooms that would be good for a ceremony that aren’t too expensive. Have you also asked at the Durant Hotel? The East Bay Parks System has cheaper places than just the Brazilian Room; I’m thinking the Shoreline Building and they’ve got one in the woods… ah yes, here’s the link, the Temescal Beach House and Fern Cottage. They rent pretty cheaply.

Also, for the life of me I can’t remember the name, there’s a club building (pretty) on Cedar between Spruce and Arch and I know they rent to private parties. I don’t know how much they cost. Anybody out there remember the name?

If you don’t mind a few minute drive, Mills College in Oakland off of the 580, has a really nice looking chapel and surrounding. I think it’s pretty cheap there too. A lot of weddings happens there. (i don’t get any profit for this suggestion at all, i only know of this place because I’ve been to a few weddings here) Hope it helps!

@cheerful, is it the Hillside Club you’re thinking of? That’s right around there—photos are pretty though I’ve never been inside.

@CLER, you might check out some of the UC spaces on campus—there’s a list of some at http://asuc.berkeley.edu/ and I know there are others. Could be a tough time of year for that, though, since that’s right around Commencement.

The Mills chapel is gorgeous, though it’s a bit of a drive to downtown Berkeley. It’s $800 to use for a ceremony (we scoped it out too!) The Unitarian Universalist Church in Kensington is also really nice, and would hold that many easily…it’s just past the Berkeley border and I think isn’t too pricey.

Good luck!
