Where to celebrate a first birthday?

Hello everyone, my son will turn 1 end of February and I'd like to invite several people but our house isn't big enough. I am not planning on doing anything fancy but it's also too cold to meet in a park. Would anyone know of a location that is not too expensive? We will have a few older kids too but I don't think it makes sense to book a birthday location with a 2-hour program, since they all focus on older kids. Any recommendation welcome, thank you

Hi Iris,

You could consider the El Cerrito City rental facilities, like their club house.  Here is their link:  https://www.el-cerrito.org/619/Facility-Rental  I've never actually rented any of their facilities but I feel their more afforadble than most venues in the east bay area. 



I don't have any recommendations but I am also interested in any replies you may get. My baby will turn 1 in March and I'm at a loss for where to have a low key birthday. I would love to just go to a park but alas the weather can be unpredictable!

Sports basement in Berkeley has a community space that can be booked for free.

Did you try Twirl in Alameda? Or else just a large table in the middle of the afternoon (read: few other customers) at a pizza place.
