Unique Venue: Rail Bridge Cellars Penthouse Lounge at Elks Tower

Rail Bridge Cellars PenthouseRail Bridge Cellars is Sacramento's first urban winery.  It provides a new dynamic and culture to Sacramento by offering the winery as a venue for people to gather. In 2011, the winery took over the operations of the Elks Tower penthouse, which is located on the 13th and 14th floors overlooking the entire city and only two blocks from the Sacramento Convention Center.

The penthouse has a colorful past dating back to the 1940s.  It was home to a brothel, a private nightclub for politicians and a radio station. Now the space is open for wine tasting and may be rented for receptions, dinners and off-site meetings.

The space is truly unique. It’s old-fashioned chic that embellishes this industrial setting with its original 1926 concrete floor and unfinished brick walls.  A bar and cocktail tables made of wine barrels, antique and contemporary furnishings, velvet red curtains that frame the 14-foot windows and ornate rugs topped with a grand chandelier have transformed this 1,000-square-foot venue into a swanky downtown spot that you’ll never forget.

The penthouse can accommodate up to 50 people for sit-down dining or up to 100 guests for reception.
